I took this class after reading Jason's bio in a PMI email. Jason makes the material fun to learn and the session is full of small take aways that people can start to use immediately in their work or life situations. It's a refreshing look at how to lead by example, especially in the new world where you might not have direct authority but also may be completely virtual. I would recommend this session to not only current and future leaders but anyone that's just looking at how to make the workplace a better environment. 5 Stars!!!

Are you tired of hearing that most projects fail because of poor communication? The frustration you feel is probably because you instinctively understand the following:
- Projects don’t fail; they don’t have a heartbeat or a social security number. People fail.
- Communication is simply the vehicle we use to lead.
- Blaming failure on communication is the greatest obstacle to addressing the lack of leadership skills that lead to undesirable outcomes.
