Charleston PMI Chapter Presents:

Don’t Adopt the Monkey:  Leadership Secrets for you, your team and your projects



Saby Waraich

January 21, 2020 from 11:30am – 1pm


How do you develop an ability to lead from any position in an organization? How can you be more adept in influencing those over whom you have little or no authority? What are the key skills that are needed for a successful leader? Knowing how to influence and lead others—often without direct authority—is critical in successfully managing projects. Most of us aren't natural leaders, the good news is that leadership skills can be learnt. The best makes the journey from manager to leader using their innate talents and through continuous learning and improvement. Don't rely on the school of hard knocks, discover the secrets to exceptional leadership and the mistakes to avoid on your own road to success.
