Course Outline

Leadership capabilities are one of the strongest predictors of career success. If you can lead people you have one of the skills employers value most!

Using a unique participatory approach to learning this training program will leverage real-life captured video of real teams making real decisions, real leaders leading real people and real projects delivering real value. Mixing video based content, in class discussions and personalized learning activities, this class is training brought into the 21st century. Tracking the ups and downs of real teams as they struggle to complete real projects this unique class brings to the surface the skills needed to lead. Providing graphic illustration of the lessons in action the class will challenge you to analyze your own capabilities and develop the skills you need to compete.

At the end of the class you will have witnessed first hand project successes and project failures. You will have analyzed the core skills that lead to success and based on those insights you will have developed your own personal skills development roadmap for ongoing performance improvement.

Format :  Nine classroom based training sessions (once a week in downtown Vancouver), plus pre-viewing video assignments in advance of class spread over a nine week period.  All classes a held in the evenings and timed to help accommodate people’s busy schedules.


  1. This class leverages video content that has been made publicly available by its rights holders. Participants are asked to watch assigned videos in their personal time in advance of each session (video assignments are approximately one hour per week). Classroom time will be used for facilitated discussion and analysis only.
  2. For professional Project Managers seeking Professional Development Units (PDU’s) a letter denoting 30 hours of contact training will be issued on successful course completion.
  3. On request we are able to run the “Lessons from Reality” class for group bookings or onsite at your business location. For group bookings the class can be run using breakfast, lunch or early evening sessions as required. Leaving people to complete a normal workday, the flexible timing of the class and the online nature of the interactions allow organizations to slot advanced training into the busy workweek.
  4. Additional personal coaching is available at an hourly rate to individuals or organizations who wish to further relate the classroom learning back to individual performance or real life projects.

All Calleam courses are facilitated by certified Project Managers with a minimum of 20 years hands on leadership experience. Your instructor will lead the sessions, will facilitate discussions and support your learning throughout the class.
