How to Lead So Others Will Follow
There’s a saying that “if you are leading, but no one is following, you are really just taking a walk”. As a Project Manager, you are instrumental in leading all the stakeholders involved so that your workflow is completed successfully. Knowing what these stakeholders want from you can help you improve your ability to influence and lead. Learn effective strengths-based leadership practices to enable you to authentically connect with others in order to influence their behaviour and get them doing what you need them to do.
This topic is all about how to better influence others. In a work setting, this equates to more effective communication between stakeholders, improved focus of activity, valuing different perspectives and talents of each stakeholder, and greater team productivity. If project managers learn how to effectively influence their teams and wider colleagues and customers, they will find their projects running more smoothly, efficiently and successfully.
