Abstract: So you think you know everything there is about motivating people and being a top performing project manager (PM)? Just stay organized, be a good communicator and have a strong work ethic, right? Well, that’s only half of the story.

Isn’t it time you heard the rest of the story?

Stop focusing only on the “art” of being a good PM and learn the “science” that goes with the art.

Project management is not only about identifying inputs and outputs, managing process and achieving key performance indicators. One of the biggest challenges for a PM is to negotiate, influence and communicate effectively with other people.

If PM’s don’t keep their teams motivated from start to finish then the project will fail resulting in impacts to schedule, budget and quality.

With a clear understanding of the art and science of motivation, PM’s can use ALL of the tools available to them to ensure their projects are a success.

In this presentation, Johanna Quintero (expert in applying neuroscience principles in the business world) and Ryan Anderson (expert in project management) team up to give you both the science and the art of motivation and high performance. They will cover these key topics:

  1. Where does motivation come from?
  2. Motivation life cycle during a project
  3. Tools you can use: both art and science focused

Come to this session to learn how you can unleash the power of BOTH the art and science of motivation in project management.
