#402 Stop Managing and Start Leading: The Engaging Leader
Have you ever encountered a ‘disengaged’ team member? How devastating would it be if your project team was full of disengaged employees? This session will help you identify disengaged teams and explain how to engage them.  Traditional project management skills are necessary, but not enough. Today’s project managers should coach, inspire, and motivate their teams to be more creative and go the extra mile.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) identify engaged and disengaged teams;
(2) apply learnings and activities to make the project team more engaged.
