about project managers and project

4. Interpersonal Skills
5. Negotiating Skills-Diplomacy and mediating
6. Team Building Skills
7. Technical Skills
Emphasis on
professionalism in

 Accomplishability: your ability to achieve and
deliver valued results.
 Value/cost: the value delivered perception
relative to the cost.
 Supply/Demand: the market dynamics of
your position, skills, etc.

 Some possibilities:
 Instill doubt that you can be replaced
 Create a sense of the risk your departure would
have on customer relations or profit
 Exploit gaps in the system – be the only one who
fully understands a process
(Caution - these actions may limit your ability
to grow)
 Our work must create value and bring a “gift”
to others each day
 In other words, what you do is appreciated and
people look forward to working with you
 We must overcome our “Voice of Judgment”
(The excuses that keep us playing small)
 We must “think indispensable”
 Inventory your value traits
 How are you different?
 What key skills, knowledge, or other factors
do you bring to your organization?
 What new skills should you pursue?

 Key
 Must Have

you in service to your organization’s mission?
 Be excellent at it
 Make it a habit, not just a goal, to collaborate
with others and exchange knowledge
 Carry a spirit of generosity into your work
without undue worry that you will be taken
advantage of
 Never underestimate the importance of the
way you look (image, dress)
 Smile, be up beat, supportive, and positive

by understanding what must get done and
adapting their skills accordingly.
 Irreplaceable
 Locked in a role
 Harboring a finite set of skills and knowledge mindset
wrapped with skills and attributes
 Keeping information from others
 A false sense that if you protect your area you will
have job security for life

 Don’t wait for the “pat on the back”
 Anticipate needs
 Make yourself essential
 Display optimism, no whining or complaining
 Stay connected
 “befriend” your boss and associates
 Serve others, not yourself
 Strengthen your weak links
 Build your team to sail the ship without you.
Teach them everything you know, and hire
people smarter than you.
 Equip yourself to always bring something
powerful, unique, and pivotal to your work,
but make it a methodology, not a checklist
that’s unique to any one discipline.
 They are the ultimate in adaptability
 Thrive on whatever gets thrown at them
 Their skills and techniques are unique, and
ever-evolving.
Which means that few businesses can thrive for
the long term without them.
 They areAuthentic Leaders
 To lead is to measurably help others succeed –Tom
Peters
 No matter what the situation, the “great”
manager’s first response is to always think about
the individual concerned and how things can be
arranged to help that individual experience success
