Facilitating leadership skills development for GSK Project Managers

 

As part of the GSK Project Management Academy, co-designed and delivered the ‘Tough Skills Programme’ (180 people over 18 months) for Project and Programme Leaders at GlaxoSmithKline in the US and UK.   Their line managers reported the following results in post-programme evaluations:

 

  • PMs are more empowered, think differently and are challenging in a more constructive way.
  • PMs demonstrate more confidence in their own abilities and are more business solution focused rather than just identifying the problems.
  • PMs are more confidence in their ability to successfully manage a project particularly in the areas of leadership, networking and influencing skills.
  • PMs are motivated to transform their project teams into stellar, high performing teams.
