Superior project leadership requires technical depth and management breadth. Project leaders must possess a custom blend of specialized knowledge and key leadership skills to drive optimum project performance: They need the ability to harness their team’s collective intelligence, exercise appropriate influence no matter their level, and communicate effectively.
Project leaders are more than just project managers; they possess a highly desirable blend of technical prowess and leadership skills. In order to build a high-performing project team, you need to harness the collective intelligence of the group and exercise influence—with or without authority—as you oversee the project to completion. Leadership and interpersonal communication skills are the key to optimum group performance.
