Through a series of vignettes mixing Shakespeare with pop songs, clowns, internet help sites, and personal narratives, witness the emotional guts of Hamlet without any of the messy plot. Whether you know exactly what happened to Rosencrantz or donÂ’t even know this Hamlet guy, dive head first into this roudy show. Directed by Cody Holliday Haefner (CC '12), HamletGhosts forces the audience to question their own complicity in the acts of madness and violence played out in front of them. It's a sexy meditation on death with a clown! HamletGhosts is presented by The Brewing Dept., a theater company formed by five Columbia and Barnard College Alumni that focuses on the long-term development of emerging artists' work.

Project management and project leadership are often equated. However, there are major differences in the two. While leading a project requires setting a direction, aligning people, and motivating people, managing a project is a complex process of reaching goals by working with and through people and other organizational resources.

The use of organizational resources including time, materials, and personnel requires a number of skills.

Participants in this workshop will:

·         Understand the difference between leadership and management and why it is pertinent to project management

·         Understand how self-awareness, the ability to collaborate, creating positive connections relate to the use of influence in project management

·         Learn basic tools for managing time and personnel and keeping to a schedule even in the face of unanticipated obstacles
