Interpersonal Skills

Interpersonal Skills Workshop

What is it about?

The delivery of success projects is based on teamwork. Project Managers and teams require specialist skills but most importantly interpersonal skills. Soft skills or people skills make up more than 80% of the skill set required to deliver successful projects.

Traditionally project team training is mostly based on technical project training courses. Project management research conducted by PM Academy highlights project failure is caused mainly by people related reasons and to a much lesser extent by technical reasons. It stands to reason that investing in the soft skills of the project teams will significantly increase project success.

This interpersonal skills workshop has been addressed to empower team members with the soft skills to become an effective member of a highly motivated and success focused team.
