2017 Volunteer Appreciation Night

Presentation Title: Leading without Authority –the Project Manager as Coach!

Presentation Description:

Your role as project manager can be complex enough.  You are leading a group to achieve a project’s objectives that has no direct reporting relationship to you.  You wear many hats at different times –communicator, mediator, hand-holder, and babysitter. 

You need to add one more hat, that of coach.  Adding this hat can help you move your projects forward to ensure they accomplish what is required, that they come in on time, and on budget.  And adding this hat may help you take off the ones of mediator, hand-holder, and babysitter. 

In this session, Hampton Roads Certified Professional Coach Walt Hoff will explain how coaching can benefit the project manager, provide insights on when to coach, and explain how to have a coaching conversation.
