Professional Development

Has anyone gone through any general professional development courses that were awesome and really helped you in your career? I have been tasked with finding some courses for our team of project managers that will help us become more polished professionals. Topics might include client communication, presentations, meeting facilitation, negotiation, conflict resolution, etc. Ideally this course could be done online but if we had to bring someone in that wouldn't be a problem. Help us get better.

I am a total fan of Precision Q+A. It is transformative, especially for PMs.

The Art and Science of Donor Development had many great takeaways that I still use for other sales roles.

I've attended a session with Lee Lambert and it was very good

Check out this

I just went to one on dealing with difficult people, but there are plenty more. They have a bunch of different options. Go to one of their seminars, pay like $80 bucks to see if it will work for you. They will offer a package when you are at the seminar worth $499. If you sign up at the workshop you get it all for $199. You will have access to everything they have online and can attend any courses you want in your area for a year I think.
