Abstract

This chapter defines leadership as the ability to inspire, persuade or influence, and a list of 17 qualities required by a good leader is also included. The four categories of situational leadership are discussed, supported by a diagram showing the relationship between supportive and directive behaviour. There is also a section on professionalism and ethics and the responsibilities of the project manager to the client, the project and the project-management profession.
