    How the most influential leaders get what they want without losing what they love.

    Life for project managers is filled with endless deadlines, unreasonable demands, and all-consuming dilemmas. For many, the pursuit of success and their drive to achieve, leads them to perform at an unsustainable pace putting at risk the very things they love. Left unchecked, drive and ambition can cause project managers to find themselves leading on empty, suffering from the consequences of fatigue.

    It doesn’t have to be that way, project managers can stay at the top of their game while beating burn out and conquering fatigue. Overcoming Project Manager Fatigue is a proven process that provides the guidance project managers need to live passionately and lead powerfully.

    In this unfiltered, solution rich presentation, you will learn how to:

    • Identify the hidden causes of leadership fatigue

    • Create a self–leadership matrix that creates focus, alignment, and long term results

    • Refuel personal and professional passion and reenergize vision
