Evolving project leadership from command and control to engage and empower – the story webinar

Added to your Saved Content Go to my Saved Content

The recently released APM book by this same title is the result of a journey of discovery to answer a deceptively simple question, “How would you assess leadership”? This webinar was held on 30 September 2021.

The author believed that, of course, they intuitively ‘knew’ what leadership is. How hard could measuring it be? Yet, scrutinising what leadership ‘is’ and how it differs from ‘managing’ projects, exposed startling insights. Drawing on leadership stereotypes from many fields of human endeavour, reasons emerged to explain why they are now failing, redundant, and even counterproductive.

What has changed? What now, then, is the function and form of behaviours required of the effective project leader?
