About this session

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. The Neuroscience of Effective Leadership 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. It has to do with your emotional intelligence!

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.

Takeaways: (list takeaways to be learned from your presentation)

1. Learn how your higher brain functions are neutralized reducing your effectiveness.

2. Recognize the cycle of how emotions drive behaviors and build habits.

3. Gain tools to build awareness of how you behave in moments of tension and the impact of that behavior on achieving our goals.

4. Learn techniques to interrupt those behavior patterns for better outcomes.

Notice to all Members:

2019 PMI CWCC AGM and BOARD ELECTION

This is to notify Members of PMI Canadian West Coast Chapter that Fiscal Year 2018 Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 20, 2019. The AGM will take place immediately following the February Monthly Dinner Event on February 20, 2019. Members do not have to attend the Monthly Dinner Event to attend the AGM. All Members in good standing as of February 20, 2019 are invited to attend the AGM at the Four Seasons Hotel at 7:30pm. Application Deadline has been extended to Wednesday, February 6, 2019.

CORRECTION: We posted on our website the position of Vice President at Large Region 1 Conference along with 5 other Board positions. However, CWCC has embarked upon a bylaw review process with the assistance of outside legal counsel. Because we are in a transition period, adapting to the new BC Societies Act, and considering amendments to our bylaws, we have concluded the better course of action is to recruit a Project Manager for the Region 1 Conference. Once our amended bylaws are in place, then we can adjust the position as appropriate. 

The following five positions are up for election to members of PMI CWCC in good standing, and a nomination submission process can be found below: 

Become A Chapter Member

PMI CWCC focuses on helping our members develop professional advancement through education, training, community involvement, mentorship, and leadership, while maintaining the core values of PMI.

Monthly Dinner Events

Our monthly dinner events are a great opportunity to learn about the latest topics in project management. Catch up with colleagues over a 3 course meal, or meet new acquaintances. Our dinner events are a popular gathering and sell out quickly.
