By Organization Acceleration
Throughout this paper, our operating paradigm is based on market conditions over the next five years. Our focus will illustrate that EI skills will be required within the realm of project management. While credentials and learned capabilities are still at the forefront within a project manager’s arsenal, a view through the lenses of EI skills suggests a project is better served moving forward through a mixture of adaptive leadership and practical experience.

Definitely emotional intelligence every day takes a more important role in society, organizations and individuals. There is growing pressure on the projects comply with the restrictions and profitability, so we must be skillful to manage projects without means giving up personal life, family and tranquility.

This is an excellent article. Looking into the lenses of the future, Emotional Intelligence (EI) would definitely become a ‘Must-have’ quality in leadership irrespective of areas of concentration and so as in Project Management. I attended a course on ‘Inspiring Leadership Through Emotional Intelligence’ organized by Coursera.org (www.coursera.org). Distinguished Professor of Organizational Behaviour, Psychology and Cognitive Science Richard E. Boyatzis, Ph.D. of Case Western Reserve University from USA facilitated the course. And immediately after that I wrote a blog on ‘Managing Projects Through Emotional Intelligence’ (http://mamoonabdullah.blogspot.com/2013/08/managing-projects-through-emotional.html). Readers of this article may consider reading my blog.

EI is very important to manage projects and people. I cannot imagine how a good PM can exist without EI. A very good article.

Excellent white paper! Emotional intelligence has certainly become one of the most important skills a Project Manager must have, especially in a globalized world like ours. Projects are managed and executed by people, no matter which industry we are working on, or even the size of the projects, so we as PMs must focus on people to get the desired results.
