PMI-LA Flagship Virtual | Career Tips for Project Managers

Leadership = Power Skills

Being a project manager means you are constantly busy meeting with stakeholders, checking in with team members, and completing tasks, leaving little time to think about your overall career path. This presentation will provide practical tips for setting career directions specific to your interests and aptitudes, acquiring the necessary skills and knowledge, and gaining a series of rewarding job assignments. You will leave with practical steps to advance your personal development, either within project management or other leadership positions.
