7 Habits of Brilliant Project Managers

Author Unknown

  1. Focus on Solutions

Problem solving and breaking through constraints is an essential part of managing projects.

  1. Participative and Decisive

All the best project managers understand the need to communicate and consult. They also know that lots of talking and procrastination achieves nothing.

  1. Focus on Customer

In every project there are customers. They might be internal or external or a combination of both. The best project managers keep customers at the forefront of their mind.

  1. Focus on Win-Win Outcomes

In any project there will be many stakeholders, all of whom will see their issues as being the most important.

  1. Lead from the Front

Project managers need to lead by example. The example they set determines how the rest of the team behave and respond to the challenges that arise.

  1. Adapt to What Arises

You can set out the best plans in the world, think about the risks, put great tracking in place and even then the unexpected will show up from time to time.

  1. Get the Best Out of Everyone

Those that excel as project managers realise they cannot do it all on their own. They recognise the importance of the collective team effort in getting results.

They find and utilise the strengths in everyone and try to ensure that they allocate roles to those best placed to deliver. They learn to keep everyone motivated and pushing the boundaries to get results.

Project management is a complex and demanding role. Starting to work on these 7 habits can take you to the next level.
