Educational session

What People Really Need From Leaders: Building a Culture of Trust, Respect, and Engagement

Speaker: Kevin Ciccotti
One of the primary responsibilities of a leader is to provide their people with the resources and support they need to succeed. But do you know what they really need? What if most of what you think you know about your people is wrong?

In “What People Really Need from Leaders,” Kevin Ciccotti offers leading-edge insights and strategies for developing world-class leadership skills, building more resonant relationships, and getting teams to commit and work together more effectively from the outset. These tools are at the forefront of human behavior and leadership strategy, and are essential to creating sustainable success for yourself and your organization.
What you will learn:
• Tools and strategies you can implement immediately to develop a deeper understanding of the people you work with;
• How to create an environment that allows PMs and teams to achieve their full potential.
Kevin Ciccotti photoAbout Kevin Ciccotti ( After spending more than 25 years working for a $2.5B company on hundreds of technology-related projects and including 16+ years in management, Kevin decided it was time for a change, and became certified as a professional coach through the International Coach Federation. He brings his project and leadership experience, plus a decade of training in coaching skills and competencies, the neuroscience of human behavior, emotional intelligence, and human needs psychology to the project managers and organizations he serves. Kevin has proven skills to help organizations empower their project leaders and teams to take more initiative in their work, support each other in achieving objectives, and create a culture that drives project success.


Keynote session

The 3 Values of Great Leaders

Speaker: Kevin Ciccotti
Leadership is a values-based endeavor. As leaders, our values need to be front and center in all we do or we risk the very real possibility of working toward something that fails to inspire our teams to greater performance, and brings us no fulfillment, meaning, or purpose. In our keynote session, Kevin will discuss:
• What experiences have shaped your values in life and work?
• How do you bring those things to the table as you lead your team or organization?
