Managers are more than just about getting things done. Project Managers have even harder tasks at hand; their work has more to it than just getting the work done on time. These qualities make a great project manager, who you can look up to-
Project Manager Qualities
The best of project managers do not need to ask for respect, they demand it through their sheer hardwork and perseverance. They are optimistic beings, who understand the relevance of work and meeting the deadline. This makes them natural leaders.
They don’t maintain a daily chart of activities, but it is always there in their head. They know what can be ignored and what is crucial. They get work done, according to who does a particular task the best. Understanding team capabilities is their strong point.
They set limits. They prioritize very well. They handle stuff one at a time. They re-evaluate what deserves to be revaluated, they can even redesign the whole project if need be.
They understand the need for clear communication and hence make it a point that the team understands what they are supposed to do. Moreover, to venture into the depths of the project they would ask questions to their clients. They are also aware of the repercussions of using bad communication strategy. Hence, they do what is required without overdoing anything.
No Holding Back
The makings of a great manager have no space of holding back anything. Be it an idea or information. They tell it all to their team, so as to deliver the best product to the stakeholders of the project.
These guys understand how important schedules can be in the daily working. They pre-plan, plan, execute, revaluate the strategy, review and then finally send it.
In case of any conflict, they build consensus as the team needs to work together. They try to get people together and unite them under the same task at hand. The decisions they give are absolutely rational-driven and without seeking anything except the goal of the project.
That broadly makes for all great project managers!
