Is it leadership or management that is most needed for managing projects successfully in global economy? How can you balance both and enhance the leadership skills of yourself and of your team members?
Leadership is an ability to get things done through others while winning their respect, confidence, loyalty, cooperation, and commitment. It involves focusing the efforts of a group of people toward a common goal and inspiring them to work as a real team. Management requires an appropriate balance of technical, human and conceptual skills along with principles and best practices of project management to meet defined objectives. All project managers are not necessarily leaders, but the most effective project managers over the long-term are able to lead virtual teams with confidence and prove to be good leaders as well.
In a project environment, leading is not necessarily the same as managing. Both project leadership and management are important for successful project management. Good project managers understand the importance of balancing both and managing stakeholders through effective leadership and are able to adjust their leadership styles according to situation and culture. You'll evaluate and refine your leadership skills and discover methods to lead for higher results and achieve extra ordinary performance from your people to compete in a global economy.
