November 2020 | Core Coaching Competencies for Project Professionals by Nigel Smith

Webinar Description

In the next of his series on ‘Soft Skills for Hard Outcomes’ webinars, Nigel Smith will focus on the role of Coaching within Project Management;

  • What is it?
  • Why is it important?
  • How does it enhance your professional signature?

In the process, he’ll delve into the now ubiquitous world of the modern Agile PM, to see how it serves that emerging role, and ponders whether the once-popular ‘Command and Control’ PM style still retains any relevance today.

Do you sometimes confuse Coaching with Mentoring or even Consulting? What about Counselling? Nigel will offer some clear definitions and signpost you to some useful things to look out for, within yourself and within your teams. The outcome is to create that virtuous environment of trust, which in turn is the true foundation to value-added and collaborative working.

Some of the key competencies you’ll learn more about are;

  • Active Listening & Curious Questioning
  • Developing Rapport & Raising Awareness
  • Taking Responsibility & Action….and more

For this session, we are co-hosted by Mentimeter, PMI UK’s platform of choice when it comes to engaging interactivity in all our webinars. We’ll be showcasing some of the key features and be supported by Oscar Svernlöv, Community Content Creator at Mentimeter.
