Are you ready to make a BIG impact at work? Your next project could be a real opportunity for you and your team to shine! Unfortunately, too many professionals have never been given the essential toolkit needed to execute business projects successfully.
Persimmon's Project Management Essentials course will teach you our signature approach to truly effective project management.
Are you managing your time, or is it managing you? The average employee spends 11 minutes on a task before encountering a distraction—and for those who are adjusting to remote work, the situation may be even worse.
While the average “time management” course focuses on squeezing more activity into a single day, this virtual learning experience takes a different approach.
We’ll teach you to identify the activities that add the most value to your organization and career--while ruthlessly outsourcing, delegating, or cutting the rest.
How to Resist the Circle of Habit and Generate Breakthroughs for Your Team
Thinking strategically is critical for moving organizations forward, and yet 96% of leaders report they are too busy reacting to day-to-day management issues to think strategically (HBR). Designed and facilitated by seasoned business leaders, this virtual course will teach you to resist the pull of your routines so you can ask the right questions, spark innovation, navigate uncertainty, and take advantage of strategic opportunities.

Stakeholder Relationship Management
How to Influence People for Better Project Results
No matter what kind of work you do, relationships with people are essential to doing it. The good news is that there are targeted tools and techniques that can help you effectively build and develop these relationships, whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, a project leader or an operations manager, right-brained or left-brained! This two-day workshop will focus on helping you learn and practice these skills in a discussion-rich environment, with case studies to help you practice new skills and techniques.
Every project faces potentially damaging risks. But when proactive leadership, a skilled project manager can reduce or even eliminate these threats. This course uses interactive and hands-on exercises to guide participants through the application of project risk management.

What is a virtual Persimmon event like?kim2021-08-27T18:21:38-05:00
We know you’ll love our virtual learning experiences! Just like a physical classroom, you’ll see and speak to your instructor, participate in discussions and small group activities, and follow along in a writable PDF workbook so you can take notes and reference them later.
Your instructor will also be available to you between sessions and after the course to answer questions, PLUS you’ll get access to electronic copies of all the documents we recommend you use to keep your projects on track.
What platform do you use for virtual courses?kim2021-08-27T18:20:33-05:00
