Opening Activity / Presentation: The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell (with permission)
Presented by: Christopher Diem, The John Maxwell Team

Abstract: The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership is the foundation of the Maxwell Philosophy. It would be impossible to cover all 21 Laws in the short amount of time we have at the dinner, therefore, we will have a conversation over two laws easily applied to the world of project management. As Dr. Maxwell says, “Leadership is Influence – nothing more, nothing less.” So, the Law of Influence will be the first topic of discussion to embrace. The second Law we will cover is the Law of Buy-In. This Law applies to project management because without people’s buy-in nothing will ever get accomplished or completed. The goal of exploring these two Laws together is to enhance the project manager’s ability to transition into more of a People Leader while maintaining the successes of a Project Manager.

Prior to joining the John Maxwell Team, Christopher W. Diem, MA, PMP spent over 22 years as an active duty Marine and retired as a Chief Warrant Officer 3, Criminal Investigations Officer. Christopher worked his way up through the ranks with ever increasing levels of leadership and responsibility and truly began his journey in leadership and mentoring during this career. Christopher firmly believes leadership starts and ends with integrity. He has taught college classes, worked as a project manager, and experienced success in network marketing. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Chapman University, a Master’s Degree in Management / Organizational Leadership from American Military University, and his Project Management Professional Certification from the Project Management Institute. He is the Founder of Carpe Diem Consulting Group, Inc., based in San Diego, CA. Christopher coaches and mentors business partners, business owners, and people wanting to make a difference in the world.


Main Presentation: Power Management: From Time Management to Life Management
Presented by: David Carroll, The Ken Blanchard Companies

Abstract: Do you have way more to do than there is time to get things done? Does this leave you overwhelmed? Are you worried about how you will get it all done? Would it be advantageous to be able to focus 100% of your energy on the task at hand and not be giving away parts of your thinking strength to other things? Are you always at the position of one-more-thing-to-do or one-more-email-to-write before you leave from work or before you go to sleep at night? If any of the above pertains to you, then this Power Management presentation will give you tips on what to do!

Dr. David Carroll is a Senior Consulting Partner for The Ken Blanchard Companies, and is a presentation consultant for Alan Carroll & Associates in the Middle East and South America. David focuses on strategic business development, communications, and the development of leadership excellence.
