When discussing our soft skills, many of us fall back on vague generalities and focus instead on the hard skills we deploy to deliver successful projects.

No one loses weight just by wearing gym clothes or acquiring gym equipment. Likewise, dressing an organization with new technologies and exotic tools is not enough to achieve the expected benefits.

Learn From Others
Much like a flu shot protects you from a specific strain of the flu, this article presents actionable techniques for project managers to take to immunize their team from the negative effects associated with a toxic member. Learn how to identify and mitigate the contagious spread of toxic behaviors before the risk to your project becomes too great.
The article talks about the myth that you must have strong pre-existing relationships to drive the key changes necessary to transform an organization. What truly helps attain success is having crucial conversations with one and all—one at a time.
Psychological safety—the belief that one can communicate ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes without negative consequences—is one of the most important factors in team productivity and morale. Here are 16 ways to foster a project environment where people feel free to share their ideas, perspectives and feedback.
With social media, you have less control than with traditional “broadcast” style media tools. That’s the downside. The upside: more conversation! That means greater opportunities to engage your stakeholders in a meaningful way.
Social media is a powerful tool to help improve the quality of project management in our organizations, but how many of us take full advantage of the opportunity?
If you are looking to use social media platforms as a way to sell your organization and its products and services, you will need to consider which ones would be good matches for your industry—and the best ones to use to pass your messages around.
The use of social media within projects can substantially help your team building as well as communication with both your onsite and remote teams. What do you need to be aware of?
Social media is apparently more about helping people find like-minded individuals with whom they can share rants, making the world feel just a little more miserable. Don't fall into the trap.
As more and more people in the workforce grew up with a connected world, the use of the tools of that world become more necessary for enhancing organizational growth.
You can leverage the proven tactics of social media to improve communications with stakeholders in your project. But once you build foundational content on your project site and build in a discussion area, the trick is to keep the area fresh and “top of mind.”
