Playmakers® Certification Course

How do you lead a successful project balancing quality, goodwill, and budget when your team might be a mix of primadonnas, introverts, conservative, or dominant personality profiles? 

From the outside, project management is often seen as merely planning and budgeting. In real life, project managers have to juggle consciously leading a diverse team and coping with changes in expectations from the organisation. 

When taking the role of a Project Manager, the art is to be clear on your individual team members' commitment, clarity, and role throughout the different project phases. Skills in motivation, conflict management, communication, and decision-making will all come in handy here. 

Playmakers® is an excellent simulation in teaching participants how to lead diverse groups and individuals by focusing on team performance, motivation, conflict management, and communication and negotiation. Playmakers® trains participants in leadership by engaging a diverse set of team members, steering committees, and others that might influence the team or task at hand. The simulation helps participants analyse, recognise, and address organisational, group-based, and individual dilemmas encountered in team and project leadership.
