Project Management is a Social Services Career
Are you looking for a career that makes the world a better place? Well, few people are trying to make the world a worse place. Some of the benefits people have claimed during Versatile’s project management training:
- Project management reduces my stress.
- Project management will give people a better understanding of how their piece fits into the big picture.
- I think we could all work fewer hours, get home to our families, and still make stuff people want on time.
And that doesn't count the work that actual social services firms do. Check out www.PM4NGOS.org. There are a lot of human lives being saved because projects are being better managed.

This webinar will highlight which levers project managers can use to identify and proactively manage intercultural factors within the project, and suggest practical ways to develop an intercultural leadership style which can be effective both at personal and team level.
