Influencing Stakeholders through Project Leadership by Mr. Gaby Awad

Mr. Gaby Awad was the speaker for the month of September 2017 in PMI Lebanon Chapter and he discussed Project Leadership and what does it take to align Leadership ‘laws’ into the process of influencing stakeholders.
Talking Points & Agenda: 
“Becoming a Person of Influence” is a model for anyone who aspires to grow as a leader. Based on a book written in tandem by Dr. John C. Maxwell and Jim Dornan, the book spells out ten fundamental qualities that define influencers. The authors carefully point out that a person’s influence does not develop overnight, but rather through a progression of four stages: modeling, motivating, mentoring, and multiplying. Influence can be acquired, but it only grows in increments. The good news is that no matter where you stand on the stairway of influence, there are learnable qualities to help you climb to the next step.
