Programs Evening Meeting | Managing Collaboration in a Diverse Team Setting

Strategy = Business Acumen

This presentation will discuss the challenges that Project Managers might find in motivating today's more diverse and inclusive teams, how to identify individual member needs, and actions the informed Project Manager can take to generate and support member participation and team cohesion to achieve the goals of the project. 

Bring your questions on how to recognize individual team member needs in achieving their goals and assignments, and how we can achieve collaboration and provide a comfort-level for all team members to perform and achieve at their highest level.
