How to Become a Leader on a Project
Leadership in Project Management is a complicated topic by itself. Moreover, you need to learn how to integrate these concepts together naturally. Neither of them is self-sufficient.
Your ultimate goal as a Project Manager is to make people:
- Feel ownership for the project.
- Love to work with you.
- Feel valued.
- Follow your example.
- Feel the impact they have on the project.
But there is a catch:
For leadership to work you need three components:
- A leader who made conscious decision to lead
- Compelling common interest to follow
In Project Management there is a severe lack of compelling common interest. So you need to find a cause interesting for your team member and aligned with benefits required by the project.
