Presentation: Leadership and How It Pertains to the World of a Project Manager
Speaker: Pranav Singh
New Venue - Hollins University
Leadership and How It Pertains to the World of a Project Manager
During the January chapter meeting,
Pranav will share some thoughts on the broad subject of leadership and how it
pertains to the world of a Project Manager. Leadership tends to be a
mysterious skill that is obvious when we see it, and very powerful when applied
– but few organizations actually teach leadership in it’s true form.
Management and Leadership tend to be interchangeable terms – even though there
is a clear difference. During this 45-minute discussion, expect to hear
some formability around leadership levels, what it takes to be a leader, and
some self-development that could help you be more effective in your role.
Pranav Singh is one of the
Application Development Directors at Advance Auto Parts. He joined the
company in 1998 and has held various roles in IT, including DBA, Manager of
Enterprise Systems & DC Systems Operations, Director of Store Systems
Development and finally his current role – Director of Corporate Systems
Development, responsible for supporting Finance, HR, Legal, Real Estate and
Procurement. In addition to seeing different areas of IT and the
business, he is very interested in leadership development, and enjoys working
with various groups to develop this competency.
