PMO Roundtable: Creating a Culture that Values Project Management: The Top 10 Countdown Checklist You Can Use Now - with Dawn Mahan

Project managers are leaders. Good leaders motivate, inspire and create an environment that encourages people to want to show up and do their best every day.  Perhaps you have experienced toxic environments that drive people by fear, consistently overwork people and punish them for taking risks or speaking the truth.
