Soft Skills for Project Managers

Course overview

The ‘soft skills’ required of a modern successful project manager are often under-estimated and under developed. Yet for successful project delivery, it is essential that a project manager is well equipped with ‘soft skills’ capabilities as well as the expected technical skills.

This two-day course covers the key soft skill areas required for managing projects such as stakeholder and communication management, conflict management, negotiation, team work and leadership in a project environment.

It is highly interactive in style and aimed at providing delegates with practical skills and tips to deploy back in the work place on real projects.
