The culture countdown for PMO leaders: The Project Gurus' guide to creating a culture that values project management

PMO leaders are the face of project management within an organisation. Good PMO leaders motivate, inspire and create an environment that encourages project people to want to show up and do their best every day. Perhaps you have experienced toxic environments that drive people by fear, consistently overwork people and punish them for taking risks or speaking the truth.

During the webinar on Wednesday 23 June, 10 top tips helped the attendees recognise what they can do (and what not to do!) to help create a healthy project culture, which will result in people who want to follow you and drive your own success as a PMO leader.

In this keynote style presentation, it counted down the below top ten practical tips that can be implemented immediately. 

Based on Dawn’s popular seminar delivered inside corporations and professional chapters around the world, this countdown content is specifically for PMO leaders by a PMO leader!

Resources from this webinar were not able to be made available for viewing afterwards.
