Don’t miss out on the next PMI Chapter Meeting on February 16th, 2017. This is a dinner meeting. Networking starts at 5:00 PM!
From Project Manager to Project Leader
We manage tasks and activities, and those activities must be performed by people, who must be led. It is not enough to simply be a Project Manager. We must become Project Leaders. Much of this transformation comes from the use of our attitude.
Our attitudes are the most important tool in our toolbox. It costs us nothing to purchase, if we use it well it can gain us everything, and if we use it poorly it can cost us everything. How we use it is up to us. Participants will learn how to get the most from their project team by focusing on key attitude changes.
Typical subjects covered include how to create the most efficient roles and responsibilities for the team, how to meet the needs of the project, how to clarify expectations and get buy in, how to harness the effects of human performance issues, how to use metrics and reports, and much more. Many of these lessons are included in Heath’s best-selling book, The Attitude Check: Lessons in Leadership.
Registration closes at noon, Monday February 13th.
Don’t forget to log on to register.

About the Speaker:Working for some great leaders, and some horrible managers, has helped Heath realize some of the subtle nuances in attitude that can make the difference in turning a manager into a leader. Having had the opportunity to be a manager and a leader himself, Heath had the opportunity to not only become a student of leadership, but a practitioner as well.
Heath Suddleson has more than 25 years managing projects in the design and construction industry where he has led teams in managing billions of dollars worth of projects. In these roles, Heath has served as the Contractor, the Architect/Engineer, and even represented the Owner.
He learned some of his most profound lessons by serving in volunteer leadership roles in organizations such as the American Legion, the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering, and Toastmasters International. In his work with Toastmasters International, Heath served roles from local clubs through many levels in the organization, even having served from 2009-2011 on the Toastmasters International Board of Directors.
Most recently, Heath worked in a corporate role for one of the world’s largest Engineering and Construction Companies developing and conducting training programs to help the next generation of Project Managers become more successful in their roles.
His bestselling book, The Attitude Check: Lessons In Leadership has become a practical field guide for leaders to harness their attitudes to increase productivity and reduce turnover in the work place. Some organizations have incorporated his book into their standard training programs. He has been featured in many publications on the topic of how to engage teams, including Engineering News Record and CFO Magazine. Heath has presented to audiences all over the world who have included Bechtel Corporation, AECOM, Skanska, The Project Management Institute, The Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering, and the Construction Specifications Institute.
