One of the current challenges faced by every team is to recruit and retain new talent. In an effort to address this problem, we at PMISV leadership team decided to put in a team of new volunteer leaders and let them execute without the fear of failure. The senior leadership mentored the team all the way and utilized the opportunities to make the team excel in collaboration, leadership and decision making. The end result was a very successful 2018 Symposium which was rated as the best symposium that the chapter has put together.

Learning Objectives: In this highly interactive presentation, audience will be engaged through life stories, videos and exercises.

  • Empower a Team
  • What are Leadership Behaviors
  • Influencing Decisions and Actions
  • Decision-Making
