Most people can readily list examples of bad workplace experiences at the hands of poorly trained managers. Yet breaking this "bad boss" cycle isn't as simple as doing the opposite of what unsuccessful managers have been doing. Building a strong team requires more than technical knowledge about project management: it also requires leadership skills and the intentional professional development of team members.

But once you have developed a strong team, there is a temptation to try to prevent your key staff from moving up so that your dream team can be maintained. This can create a "no win" situation for your team members - otherwise known as the fallacy of "doing your job too well." During this presentation, we will explore ways to build strong teams while remaining committed to professional development (and advancement) of your team members. Mr. Yauger will also discuss real-world examples of common problems encountered by project managers and provide tools for navigating the "no-win" scenario.
