Title: Work UnScripted: Manage in the Moment - Think Faster. Lead Smarter. Act Now!

Synopsis:
The only thing we can count on today is that things are going to change and the pace is accelerating.  The Plans, Schedules and Scripts that worked in the past may no longer be working and resources are tighter than ever. The future remains uncertain yet you still need to perform.  Every PMP knows they need to expect the unexpected but can you learn to like it or even thrive in it…? 

It is time for Project Manager to Work UnScripted 

You will be introduced to The UnScripted Mindset™ that will allow you to face uncertainty and ambiguity to create opportunity. Based on the principles of improv and problem solving you will laugh while you learn tools & techniques that will allow you to manage the UnExpected, the UnPredictable and the UnAvoidable. 

At this event, you will learn to:

  • Harness the power of working and leading using the UnScripted Mindset
  • Leverage the critical skills of successful improvisers to think on your feet, adapt to unexpected changes, communicate effectively, collaborate skillfully, negotiate and engage, develop trust and support
  • Have the confidence and the courage to face unknown obstacles and challenges and handle unexpected situations with ease
  • Laugh while you Learn Tools & Techniques that can be applied immediately in your work
