This program is designed specifically for Project Managers. These managers are running mission critical projects with teams of people who do not report to them, they have all the responsibility and none of the authority. How do they lead them? Usually quite poorly, as they revert to being task managers and focus more on managing the project and less on leading the team. This program changes all that.
The Project Leadership program helps your Project Managers develop their true form of leadership, Influence. They learn how to build an effective project team that is focused on customer objectives, led by a newly transformed Project Leader!
Your Project Leaders learn how to build relationships with project team members, even the contract ones, in such a way that their influence evokes higher levels of project success. The project team is ready to overcome challenges, meet customer demands, and get the job done! This doesn’t happen with a clipboard project manager, it only happens when you have a Project Leader! This program delivers on that goal.
This program is different from the Project and Process Leadership programs where the teams do not report formally to the managers. The Team Leadership program helps to develop leaders when the team DOES report to them. PL Coaches help your managers grow past their command and control style to that of a true leader who is operating at the 5th level of leadership – Developing Other Leaders. Imagine a culture where your leaders not only delivered results at a high level, but also developed other future leaders for your firm!
Team Leaders learn how to create and foster high performance teams. Everything rises and falls on leadership and your leaders, so why wouldn’t you want to invest into the most impactful training they will EVER receive. One that enhances their communication style, improves their relationships, increases levels of trust, and delivers higher levels of success.
This program is designed specifically for managers who are running a process. This usually involves a team mixed with direct reports, indirect reports, and contractors. This mixed reporting environment requires a Leader who embraces the principle of leadership is influence.
PL Coaches helps your process managers adopt the Leadership Engine to develop their Influence. Once the training program takes root, the process managers transform into Process Leaders who can take ANY process and process team and deliver higher levels of customer satisfaction, continuous improvement, and sustainable results.
If you company culture is closely tied to the use of processes to deliver products and services and you are looking for Leaders to take those processes to the next level, this program is for you!
Custom Leadership Program
PL Coaches works with you and your stakeholders to create a custom program that will specifically address both your company’s strengths and weaknesses. You retain, change, or throw out what you want or don’t want. Each leadership competency is chosen and modified for your firm.

During the sessions, managers explore the Leadership competencies listed below and consider thought-provoking coaching questions that lead to lasting behavioral changes.

Success = Management x Leadership
There are two key questions at the end of every project, process, or task:
1. Was it successful?
2. Do you want that Manager on your next big, important activity?
The goal of our program is to help you answer “Yes!” to both questions.
The difference between success and failure is Leadership. Many organizations have strong managers yet still experience challenges with delivering on time and on budget, managing expectations, leading teams, and influencing stakeholders.
PL Coaches solves this problem by tapping into manager’s collective Management wisdom and multiplying it by nurturing their Leadership talents to achieve increased Success.
Why “×” and not “+”? Because Leadership effectiveness is a force multiplier. A Leader is able to create immediate on-the-job improvements and long-term exponential improvements throughout their organization. When one manager grows into a Leader, the team members they interact with on a daily basis benefit from their leadership as well.
The Exponential Benefits of Having Both
During the PL Coaches Leadership program, our emphasis is on helping your managers integrate their Leadership competencies with their existing management skill sets.
