In order to run projects successfully, project managers need to master more than the requisite technical knowledge. The more complex the project, the more significant their interpersonal skills become to achieving a successful outcome. Without the people skills necessary to lead effectively, even the most carefully orchestrated project can quickly fall apart.
Emotional Intelligence for Project Managers introduces readers to the basic concepts of emotional intelligence and shows how to apply them to their project goals. Readers will learn how to:
- Set the tone and direction for the project
- Communicate more effectively
- Improve listening skills
- Create a positive work environment
- Motivate, coach, and mentor team members
- Productively handle stress, criticism, and blame
- And more!
The revised second edition includes several expanded sections on self-awareness and self-management, as well as a new chapter on using Emotional Intelligence to lead Agile Teams and a close look at Servant Leadership. Without the people skills necessary to lead effectively, even the most care fully orchestrated project can fall apart. This indispensable guide gives project managers the tools they need to create winning teams and get the job done right and on time.
