 The #NewNorm for Project Managers Video Course: 

Unleash the Power in Your Relationships to Accelerate Project Outcomes - and Your Career

by David Nour

One of the biggest challenges for Project Managers is to continuously motivate your team and keep the production numbers up. As a Project Manager, you live and die by the performance of your team. 

Whether you're searching internal or external to your organization for the next exciting project to work on, or perhaps exploring the next job as a Project Management Professional, pushing resumes is dead! There is so much noise in the project management space that you and your brand are simply getting lost in the noise! What you do and how you do it matters LESS, and the RESULTS you're able to produce matters "MORE than ever."

The #NewNorm for Project Managers was created to tip the scale in your favor.  Through this course you will discover executive's secrets for what they're looking for that could move you up the corporate food chain with better opportunities and financial gains.  One of the key components boils down to building and nurturing critical relationships. 

Executive sponsors of projects care less about your educational background or professional pedigree and more about your ability to engage, influence, and get key tasks completed, often earlier than estimated and below budget!

David Nour, senior management advisor, international speaker, best-selling author of Relationship Economics and Return on Impact, and PDUs2Go’s leading content provider, has developed the #NewNorm framework for project management professionals to help you think and lead differently – your education, your branding, packaging and marketing your story, adding value to each interaction. In short, elevating you above the market noise.

In this course Project Management Professionals will learn how to:

  • Get the most production out of your team without "twisting arms," getting angry, or raising your blood pressure!
  • Identify true loyal team members that you can delegate responsibility to who will rise to the occasion and make your life easier and less stressful... (It's probably not who you think)
  • Raise your value (your personal stock) to the company by identifying and creating efficiencies that make your company more profitable.
  • Implement the secret OMV formula (Objectives, Measures, and Value) that savvy executives use to climb their way to the top.
  • Get more done with less time and less people
  • Become one of the most appreciated employees in your company (sought by other companies) by providing Value-Based Options every time you communicate with the higher ups.

In these modular workshops you will learn the most effective techniques to unleash the power in your relationships to accelerate project outcomes—and your career.

 When you master the art of commanding attention for the results you’ve influenced, you will:

  1. Engage and energize your team to achieve awe-inspiring outcomes;
  2. Accelerate your professional momentum through trust-based relationships internal and external to your organization;
  3. Gain key institutional knowledge that opens doors to more compelling projects and executive sponsors; and
  4. Experience greater work/life satisfaction—and income potential!

Past participants are singing the praises of the New Norm for Project Managers Workshop:
