Purpose

Learn Your Personality and How to Make the Most of It

Become a Cheetah Certified Project Manager

Leverage your innate strengths to get things done Cheetah Fast

60-Hour Online Program To Supercharge Your Success

  • Leverage your innate strengths to get projects done fast
  • Learn how to get the right people helping you with projects the right way!
  • Learn how to work smarter, not harder
  • Get the credential that will help you get better jobs and get the promotions you deserve.
  • Created by Michelle LaBrosse, PMP, voted by the Project Management Institute as one of the most influential women in Project Management worldwide.

In this 60-hour, three-part program, you learn your innate strengths and how to leverage those in three very important domains – how you learn and where you place your focus, how you do your projects, and how you negotiate. This differs significantly than most other ways of learning time management techniques, project management methodologies, and negotiations that try to stuff you into a one-size-fits-all approach to success in business and life (which is the reason people are only working at 50% their capacity). Our program is all about YOU. You quickly learn how to leverage what will make you stand head and shoulders above everyone else.     

In the first element of this program, you learn to harness the full power of your mind using state-of-the-art neuroscience techniques and influence strategies. Modern day distractions and lifestyle practices contribute to situations where your mind is easily hijacked tending to the urgent issues of the day. Over half of the people that Cheetah surveys say that having more time is their number one desire. When you learn how to take charge of how and on what you focus your mind, you regain control over how you live your life. Instead of enduring your time, you are fully engaged and experiencing life at your full capabilities.  

Every one of us does projects in the same way that we achieve our goals. When you master a way for you to do your important life projects that works best for you, the world becomes an infinite sea of opportunities rather than challenges you must manage and endure.  

Then, you learn how to best reach agreements with others that leverage each person’s unique strengths. In standard negotiations, you learn how to come to mutually agreeable compromises. Take a minute to contemplate how you could create much better agreements and opportunities with others when you build off of each others’ strengths. In this scenario, you both create so much more together than you ever could individually. Instead of dreading “negotiations,” you look forward to every engagement for the marvels it can unlock.

When you complete the Cheetah Certified Project Manager Program, you know how to best use your personality and innate strengths to achieve your projects at cheetah speed. You also learn how to bring out the best in everyone around you as well.
