How It Works

Using a current project as a mental reference, participants respond candidly to 25 statements. The PLA also includes a feedback component. The feedback form provides participants with another perspective on their project leadership skills. Used in tandem, this combination creates the most accurate picture of a project leader's effectiveness. Finally, a scenario activity and action planning enables project leaders to identify actions for building on their strengths and improving less-developed skills.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify project leadership strengths and areas for improvement
  • Understand five interpersonal skills critical to effective project leadership
  • Learn how to allow them to complete their project work successfully
  • Apply leadership skills at each project phase
  • Develop action steps for leading projects
Theory

Project management is now becoming a mainstay of organizational life. And, just as it has evolved, so has the role of the project leader. The literature and research on project management identifies numerous skills that a project manager or leader should possess – both technical skills (such as planning, organizing, scheduling, etc.), and "people skills." The focus of the PLA is on the five important interpersonal skills for project leadership. These five skills are:

  • Encouraging open communication
  • Inspiring a positive outlook
  • Influencing effectively
  • Managing conflict
  • Developing the team
The successful project leader uses both technical and interpersonal skills to guide the efforts of the project team. Both sets of skills are needed to work through the "Project Life Cycle," which consists of planning, managing the process, and wrap-up.
