Have you ever wondered: What are the differences between leadership and project management, or how could I improve as a leader in the role of project manager?

Join RJ Davies as he shares his thoughts about the traits of leadership in the form of the "Leadership Pyramid" and how it relates to project management. He will also share an introduction to “The Four Agreements” and how practicing them relates to the "Leadership Pyramid” and strengthens one’s potential effectiveness as a leader in the role of project manager.
