Project Management Skills

Move beyond spreadsheets and time lines.

We teach the fundamentals of project management: planning, organising, setting and achieving goals, and working in and leading project teams. However, we specifically focus on the human element of project management.

Project teams are made up of individuals who come with a range of personality types, working styles and idiosyncrasies. Project managers need to manage the interacting emotions of a team so that relationships run smoothly, obstacles are tackled and individual team members are coached along the way. A project manager high in emotional intelligence will ensure that this happens.

Our project management training is customised for our clients based on your internal processes, systems and workplace culture.

Michael has taught me much more than the basics of Project Management…[he] has taught me business skills that I can use in any role now or in the future... the benefits of working with data so that I am in a position to make an informed decision... taking a systematic approach to problem solving rather than jumping straight into looking for a solution. Most importantly Michael has taught me about people and communication.

Testimonials

"AttitudeWorks' facilitation style, wealth of knowledge and ability to get a group contributing and problem solving within a leadership course was second to none. They constantly challenged my thinking during the course and I felt the impact on my leadership style, and awareness post the course, was instantaneous.

Michael has a genuine interest in the success of those involved which speaks to how invested he is in the development of others...I would recommend any business serious about developing their leaders to look no further than Michael and the team at AttitudeWorks."

"Michael packs his Leadership courses with engaging ideas and tips & tricks to help leaders develop and realise their own potential. He works hard to strike the right balance in team activities and his content was peppered with insightful fun video clips which aided the demonstration of key points and insights."

Justine Grieve

"I cannot recommend Michael highly enough. His Leadership Development course is the best Leadership Course I have attended. Michael is an excellent course leader and extremely knowledgeable. The DiSC profile is certainly key to becoming a good leader, and Michael's delivery of these concepts is second to none."

Stuart Oakey
Leader & Operations Supervisor at Contact Energy Ltd

"I knew our audience expected a lot. Michael met their expectations, then exceeded them. He spoke on emotional intelligence, and our audience lapped it up. They loved it. Michael made the presentation very interactive and entertaining. People laughed a lot, yet were highly engaged. He clearly practices what he preaches - he’s a very friendly, authentic human being, and a pleasure to work with. I unreservedly recommend Michael as a speaker and trainer on emotional intelligence."

"Michael Rooke has that WOW factor that so many facilitators lack. We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have secured his services and I can assure you that other companies would feel the same way. I would bump him up to the top of the facilitator list if I were you because if one facilitator can secure your repeat business, it is Michael Rooke."

"We selected AttitudeWorks, and in particular Michael, to deliver leadership training to our 50 plus people leaders in the organisations. I was highly impressed with the four day, plus follow up day, leadership course Michael delivered and in fact rated it the best leadership course I have attended in my 25 year career. His delivery was superb and he achieved an excellent balance between teaching, group discussion, case study and group break out work. All my direct reports also noted the quality of the course and everyone had some great takeaways that they are putting into practice. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael to other organisations looking for high quality leadership training."
