Managing Your Leadership Power
No registration required!

pasadena landscape smallOver the years Byron has advised professionals across the U.S. as well as internationally. Whether the topic is career, relationships, or personal development, a common obstacle has been self-management. Breakthroughs were realized in all areas when the proper perspective was gained and a reality based identity was embraced.

PMI presents 5 types of power:

1. Formal or Legitimate Power
2. Reward Power
3. Punishment Power
4. Expert Power
5. Referent Power

One's self-management (perspective and identity) either enhances or detracts from the influence inherent in any of the 5 forms of power.

Self-management is essential in interactions with senior management and challenging stakeholders on projects at Health Advocates. For many project managers perspective and identity explains their professional progress or stagnation.
