If you are looking to up your leadership/project management game, you NEED this box.
I decided last year (2018) that , even though I made a conscious decision to not to return to management, I want to be a better informal leader. I am senior staff in my agency, and while people don't report to me, they look to me for support. I want to know more so that I can do a better job there, and in the communities that I lead. Nicole has done a wonderful job putting the reading content for this box together, and I can't say enough good things.
Not only is the content great, the packaging and the gifts are wonderful and very thoughtful. This is what they call the "whole package"!
If you are looking to become a better leader, then the ProjectBox is for you. Each month you receive a great hardcover book with a study guide that will help you grow as a leader. The box also includes a couple other motivational items to help keep you focused on how to become a great leader. Nicole, the creator of ProjectBox, has curated a wonderful learning experience in each box that comes packaged perfectly without any of the items being ruined. You won’t be disappointed when you open your ProjectBox!
I got my first box this month and could not be more satisfied. Originally, I wasn't sure if this was for me because I am not a Project Manager, but it is definitely going to help me be seen as more of a leader in my office if I can absorb a few tips from each box and communicate better with my team.
I am in digital marketing-- every campaign we plan is a new project. My team tosses around ideas but ultimately I am responsible for their success or failure of each campaign, which includes communicating to all key stakeholders (my bosses) what is going on for each one (ultimately what worked, what didn't work, WHY it failed, and how much money we spent vs how much we made.)
Executives often turn to Marketing when they're looking to cut costs because they think that a good Sales department makes up for the need of Marketing department, but thats just not how it works in this day and age. I combat this battle every day at work, constantly having to justify my own existence, while performing well at my job day to day, and be taken seriously as a shorter and smaller woman in a sea of older men.
I could not be more excited to have found this subscription box-- the lessen has been relevant, well thought out, and designed exactly for the kind of professional development that I am looking for WITHOUT going back to school.
