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. Each box has a Start Guide which summarizes the lessen for that month based on which book is in the box. The table of contents for the book only outlines minimally the topic of each chapter, but the Start Guide goes into in-depth bullets. At first, this guide looked like there would be WAY too much work for me to put in. I have a really busy schedule and I am adding this on top of it, but the guide breaks down every topic so granularly that I can pick and choose which things I am most interested in. Beyond the lessen, there are cards with quotes on them that are not only inspirational, but thought shifting in my perspective. One in particular got me really thinking about how good communication between associate and supervisor or boss is really only as good as the level of trust between the two. I realized I needed to work on some relationship building with a few of my co workers-- I think I will start to understand them better and we will work together more harmoniously and efficiently. If you get the entire box (not the lite version), inspirational goodies and surprises have also not been forgotten! The child inside of me loves opening gifts, so this is like having a birthday every month-- the gift of becoming a better version of myself. Could not recommend more!
