B4 Project Managers Leadership Development Map

Course Introduction

Leadership's legend and allure is one of modern management science's hottest topics. From personality theory, styles theory, charisma theory to situational theory; all try to discover leadership's required abilities characteristics. However, is there really one convincing leadership model? Looking at renowned leaders in business, politics, military and religion; it seems difficult to find a clear and unanimous leadership characteristic. In fact, different cultures, time periods, backgrounds, and organization environments create different great leaders.

Since leadership's common characteristics are so difficult to define, how do enterprises choose and develop required leaders? Is there a systematic and effective knowledge structure, method and tools to help choose and train potential leaders? In the light of this need, we specially designed this course; that not only teaches general leadership theories, but also provides a comprehensive leadership abilities map and three types of effective project leaders ability assessment models.  These can be used as a reference for enterprise selection and training of potential leaders. It can also be used for self-assessment of project leadership abilities and as an improvement baseline.
