LEADERSHIP ISSUES INVOLVED IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT
No matter how gifted you are professionally, if you find it hard to work with people, you will never be a good project manager. It is well known that a great deal of a project’s success depends on the way the people in the team perform – and the project manager plays a central role in this. It should be commonsensical that Project Management is not a purely technical discipline conducted in some dark corner of an office building. An important part of the role the manager plays involves establishing effective relationships with a wide range of people and maintaining them even in sometimes challenging circumstances. A key saying for this domain could therefore be: project managers manage first and foremost people, not papers or activities.
