techniques to project activities to meet the project
requirements." - PMI.org
While this is true, I advocate for project management professionals to become the partners who work strategically with their business and customers, even when it feels difficult to do so.
I believe that we truly serve our clients when they know that they can come to the us, not to solve problems for them or push them to be accountable, but instead to be the leader that helps them step into their full capability, so that they are inspired to innovate and solve their own problems. When we do this, we become strategic purpose provokers, guiding teams to unite their purpose and path.
Understanding how you, and those around you energetically show up can help you increase both your leadership abilities and your overall engagement and excitement in your work and life. Further understanding your personal brand and how others see you is equally insightful.
By raising energy and engagement, while stepping into team purpose, you have an opportunity to improve the quality and depth of communication, increase productivity, improve satisfaction in work-life balance and increase emotional intelligence. Most importantly, you’ll begin to lead your clients to innovative outcomes.
I have worked with individuals and teams, from the U.S. to the U.K., to help them understand how their approach defines their outcomes. I can help you and you teams identify where to focus your energy and guide you to harness that energy for strategic partner-based project management.

My group and corporate programs are customized to help project managers become strategic leaders by:
Helping each project leader understand how they are showing up with their customers and their peers. Through a focused 360 brand assessment and coaching, the team and each individual will gain awareness that will allow greater choice.
Leadership development content that will guide team members apply this awareness to grow specific qualities including enhanced communication, emotional intelligence, relationship building, time management and more.
Creating the paths to strong team identity by aligning team values to company and client values. This will help each project manager emerge as stronger leaders for their project teams by creating connection for the good of the business and accelerated career growth.
Sharing tools and best practices to assist in team and individual performance while allowing participants to explore with each other what they have learned through their journeys.
