  • Learn techniques for managing: self, staff, politics, external relationships and others.
  • Share best practices for planning managers from faculty and peers.


The Planning Management Institute (PMI) provides an intensive, interactive developmental opportunity for people who manage, or will soon manage a public or private-sector planning department. This practical, lively, hands-on workshop has become a unique, once-a-year opportunity to network with peers and learn best practices from a team of experts with national reputations.

Participants will learn how to take their management practice to a deeper level, exploring topics ranging from coaching to conflict resolution, organizational politics, managing change and others. Led by a seasoned leadership facilitator with over 300 clients nationwide and a distinguished faculty of highly accomplished senior-level planning managers.

Sponsored by the City Planning and Management Division, the workshop is an ideal way to kick-off your conference experience.
