Acquire the leadership skills that are the hallmark of the successful project manager!
Project management is often defined by processes and methodology, but projects are accomplished by people. Successfully leading those people is the core of a project manager's job. Even the seasoned project manager will encounter situations that present unique leadership challenges.
Bernardo Tirado offers a clear path to help develop leadership skills within the project management framework. Using a hands-on, practical approach, he presents a model for taking any project manager's leadership skills to the next level. His model focuses on techniques to develop and apply three areas of awareness—self-awareness, awareness of team dynamics, and organizational or “political” awareness. The first three parts of the book provide tools for understanding and influencing behavior and the last part brings the three types of awareness together in a case study.
Exercises throughout make the book interactive and offer a continual assessment of the reader's progress.
