Project success is such an exciting, exhilarating and rewarding experience. Alas, most projects these days still fail. This presentation explores two crucial ingredients for project success: empowering leadership and happiness. It explains why and how leadership can help build successful projects by actively accounting for happiness on the individual, group, project and organizational levels. Attendees will learn how to find a clear focus of what they really want to achieve, create a strategy through principle centered leadership, resolve project issues and align their priorities for happiness and project success.
This interactive presentation helps project practitioners find a clear focus of what they really want to achieve on the individual, group and organizational level. It thus unlocks energy to flow and act from the whole, practice leadership, be happy and achieve project success.
The presentation targets anyone who is sincerely interested in finding new and transforming ways to project success. These can be individuals, project managers, project team members, line managers, line organizations, companies or social groups.
