May Monthly Meeting
Lead With Impact
Date: Monday May 10th, 2021
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Speaker: Spencer Horn
Take responsibility for your impact, results and reputation as a project manager. This session will help participants create awareness of the one thing that will help them improve results in their business and personal roles. It will help them begin to solve the challenges they face every day and to more successfully achieve their goals. Lead with Impact has less to do with skill, education and intelligence, and more to do with the ability to think clearly under pressure, manage and motivate people effectively, and to change your approach as necessary.
This class provides leaders with the skills to recognize how emotions drive behaviors, the difficulty in managing one’s own emotions, and the emotions of those around them. Tools to manage interpretation of information and appropriate levels of reactions are reviewed. Leaders become more aware of their unconscious behaviors and learn to effectively manage emotions to make conscious decisions for future behaviors.

May Quarterly Breakfast Meeting
The Benefits of Understanding Your Leadership Style
Date: Friday May 21, 2021
Time: 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM
Speaker: Dr. Melanie Magruder, PMI-ACP, PMP
As we deliver value in the new normal by adjusting to virtual interactions in lieu of face-to-face communication, knowledge and demonstration of positive leadership styles is important. How leaders are viewed can influence the outcomes of objectives and goals set forth. Leadership vision transforms into action, if accepted by the followers or team members. It is imperative that one understands the leadership style that is demonstrated to gain maximum positive results. Furthering the understanding of the influence a leader has on followers or team members, provides the guidelines for effective positive leadership.
