A project is defined as a ‘temporary endeavor which is undertaken to create a unique product, service or result.’ It will also interest you to know that the project environment is way different from that of a typical day to day operations or the regular day to day basis of a team. A huge impact of this kind of temporary job on the staff employed within the project in respect of their motivation and commitment to the work in hand which also revolves around their loyalty to the project.
Projects rarely fail but people do! This likely means that a Project Manager is important for every success recorded in any project, but hold up, what qualities does he/she need have? let’s take a look below…
Without vision, a project is not guided.
Professional project leaders are often termed as the ones having a vision of where a team is headed and the ability to as well articulate it also.
It was once stated that a leader is one who ‘lifts us up, and gives us a reason for being as well as gives the vision and spirit to change’. Visionary leaders add the spice and enable people to feel they’ve got a real stake in a project.
They have a way of empowering people to experience their vision and they can achieve this on their own.
BEST COMMUNICATION SKILLS
In all elements of work in life, the most common complaint about an organization is ‘lack of communication.’ and this is common everywhere especially in environments with so much of hierarchy. When talking Project leadership, it entails clear communication about responsibility, performance, goals, expectations, and feedback. The project’s leader is also the team’s link to the larger organization. The leader or person in charge must have the ability to effectively persuade as well as negotiate when necessary to ensure the success of the team and project.
INTEGRITY IS ESSENTIAL
You can Call it honesty, integrity or loyalty.
The project manager needs to have them all. His/her actions should set an example for other team members to emulate. These persons are responsible for setting and effecting ethical standards for the rest of the team. There is a greater need for the project managers to practice what they preach and in turn, earn trust.
We follow people with a can-do attitude, and not those who are always negative and would go ahead to outline and give us reasons for why something can’t be done. Enthusiasm can be said to be contagious and every effective leader knows this. A project manager without passion is one, that is simply put, lacking definition but on the other hand, the passion will meet better yield when the energy is being channeled to the right source per time.
