The P in PM is as much about ‘people management’ as it is about ‘project management’.

— Cornelius Fichtner

In a world that is constantly changing, organizations change with it. They often deploy projects to bring about these changes. Projects are not only used when developing new products and building new structures, but also when implementing reorganisations, introducing new information systems, and organizing events. The popularity of project-based work in organizations has therefore continued to grow in recent decades.

Many times, you will work routinely during your job. Yet within companies, you see more and more project-based work as described above. But what does this actually entail? What is the difference between project-based work and routine work? And why approach something in a project-based way? What is the added value?

Project-based working has some specific characteristics. Project management uses processes, skills, tools and knowledge to complete a planned project and achieve its goals. It differs from general management because of the limited scope of a project, concrete deadlines, and specific deliverables.

“A project is a temporary collaboration of a number of people – often from different fields – to achieve a predetermined project result within a set time with a set budget.”

In all our workshops the link between theory and practice is central, allowing participants to apply what they have learned directly in their work.

Is this you?

You are managing, project managing, or otherwise responsible for planning and organizing and:

  • having a hard time managing the project budget
  • dealing with a client that constantly wants to change things
  • having a hard time with responsibility and authority
  • struggling to keep the team on track
  • falling behind all the time
  • constant in crisis management
  • not having a good system for planning
  • finding it difficult to plan and organize
  • lacking time to plan
  • disliking constraints
  • having a perfect plan until the execution, and then it did not work at all
  • there is always somebody or something messing up your or their plan!

program

In all our management workshops the link between theory and practice is central, allowing you to apply what you have learned directly in your work. It is hands-on and we use cases from your and our own experience.

ACTION PLAN

The participants create an action plan with learning topics they are going to address during their work. The action plan is a method to implement what they have learned during the workshops and to manage and monitor progress.

FOLLOW-UP

We advise to have a follow-up day a month after the workshops which can be done by the management of the participants or by the trainer. The action plan and the experience of the participants are input for the follow-up session. We will look at their progress, where help is needed and what kind of tools they need now to make their work more efficient.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AFTER THE WORKSHOP PROGRAM?

After following our training program your managers will:

  • know how to plan and organize
  • know how the responsibility and authority is established
  • know how to effectively manage your time
  • know their own planning attitudes and beliefs
  • know how to prioritize
  • know how to lead the project management team
  • know how to handle change and disruption
  • know how to handle negative influences on their planning
  • know how to manage expectations
  • know how to delegate
  • know how to create a simple system for planning
  • know all the elements needed for a good plan
  • know how to effectively report

this is how we do it

The philosophy of Leadership2Impact Academy towards leadership and management is that you cannot manage people, you only can lead people. Management is a profession and as with every profession, it is not for everybody, and you always must keep up with your profession. The principle of our workshops, training programs, etc. are based on “Servant Leadership”. In the broadest sense, this means that a manager has a facilitating role.

The workshops are mainly based on experiential learning. This is the process of learning by doing. By engaging participants in hands-on experiences and reflection, they are better able to connect theories and knowledge learned in the workshop to real-world situations.

What participants gain from experiential learning is:

  • A better understanding of the course material
  • A broader view of the world and an appreciation of the community around them
  • Insight into their own skills, interests, passions, and values
  • Positive professional practices and skill sets
  • Self-confidence and leadership skills

practical information

Peter Henssen: I started my career in the army, and I found out that leadership came natural to me. After the army I have learnt more about leadership in the organizations I worked for and when I had my own company. I have studied, mastered, and developed leadership to my own benefit and to those who have crossed my path. I worked with many teams, put together many teams and trained teams.

I am specialised in working with managers to find their own way of managing in order to develop their professional leadership styles. It never fails to add value to themselves or their organisations.
