Project Leadership Program Description
Leaders drive change; they push the human race forward. Leaders inspire those around them to reach for greatness. Great leaders prove that extraordinary leadership doesn’t require official authority, it just requires that we put our team members success first.
Project Leadership is about helping Project Teams deliver transformational change without any positional authority. To do this efficiently and cost-effective and to achieve near 100% adoption on day one, Project Leaders need to employ Project and Change Management best practices AND great leadership techniques.
The 120VC online Project Leadership Program (PLP) provides how-to instruction on the latest best practices being used by our Professional Services teams to execute enterprise-wide projects for our Fortune 500 clients. It also incorporates the latest thinking in Leadership best practices.
We developed the PLP in collaboration with respected researchers, academics, and subject-matter experts. We curated the program material from hundreds of books, articles, theoretical frameworks, and best practices that represent the best thinking in both the leadership and the project execution communities today.
This online program combines weekly assignments, online learning community interaction, bi-weekly instructor-led classes, and quizzes; the combination of reading, sharing ideas, critical thinking, lecture, and quizzes is meant to reinforce the learning and enable the student to execute upon best practices.
There are two weeks of assignments and learning community interaction between each online instructor-led class. Each week’s assignments should take 2 – 3 hours weekly. There is a total of 8 two hour instructor-led classes, the entire program is 14 weeks.

I was a 120VC convert long before joining this program, but the Online Project Leadership Program has evolved the lens I use to view my everyday interactions in a work environment.I have bounced between Project and Product Management for 10+ years and find that most courses I have taken in the past focused on the management of data and timelines. They help to manage a project more effectively, but fall short of understanding how to motivate the team to collectively accomplish a task. This program focuses on the human aspect of projects: communication, leadership, and inspiring teammates to name a few.If you can effectively manage a project, this program provides you with the leadership tools that will force multiply your team's productivity. The skills acquired and honed through the coursework are invaluable. Don't be a manager - be a LEADER!
I've been a Project and Program "Manager" for 15+ years, got my PMP in 2011 and more recently my PMI-ACP.While the bulk of my project management capabilities have been acquired on-the-job and the credentials provided a standard way to communicate and engage with other PM colleagues, the 120VC PLP standard and training was the first learning experience that distilled some critical gaps concepts into an immediately augmented "tool belt," along with integration of people engagement fundamentals and an invaluable "lens" into behavioral insights and influencing techniques.In project management, leadership is of course critical and understanding that 'leadership' is about people while 'management' is about the work is something the most effective Project and Program LEADERS must grasp, practice and strive for mastery. With its "people first" approach and its integration of behavioral neuroscience across individual and organizational spectrum, achieving true servant leadership is possible.When taken with the extensive volume of the best practices, templates and specific procedures covered in both the course and its guidebook, a Standard that also emphasizes the HOW is covered, enabling the Project and/or Program Leader (and many other Leadership roles) to be more efficient.I cannot recommend this course enough!#OliveGreen
