Nov 2022 Monthly Meeting (virtual)

Subject:  Harnessing the Power of Adaptability to Boost Project Success

So you think you’re adaptable? But are you, really and do your projects reflect that? We have learned in the last few years that the keys to success are in our ability to harness the power of adaptability. It applies to project management as well when we think about navigating unexpected conditions, uncertainty, and the drive to resilience. The best project managers demonstrate a high adaptability quotient (AQ) with the ability to navigate change and lead their teams to project success. That can be you when you join this session to tap into ways to level up your adaptability skills and help you reach your high AQ potential with project management.
