Take Your Leadership to the Next Level

As I mentioned in my recent post, your dedication to daily improvement of your leadership skills is essential to become a great project manager.

Earlier this year, I spoke at gantthead.com ITXPO 2011 on soft skills and presented power tips, tools and a leadership roadmap.

As a project manager everything you do is for your teams, your stakeholders and your customers. You want to continue to grow and develop as a project manager so you can step up to take leadership roles in your organization.  i.e.: to manage multiple projects, lead a significant enterprise wide project, negotiate important contracts and conceive and execute an innovative use of IT for competitive differentiation. 

 Leadership is a journey of self discovery.  Your leadership development will be guided by your own personal vision. 

Here is my list of a few of my power tips and recommended tools from The Mentoring Group, to help you get started on your journey.

 Four Power Tips to Promote Your Success:

  1. Create a personal vision statement and develop a personal vision statement
  2. Develop a personal development plan
  3. Assess your personality traits, strengths and weakness (Myers/Briggs, SDI Inventory, and DISC etc.)
  4. Develop your own project management leadership style (Charismatic, people-oriented, servant, situational, transformational; learn about different leadership styles)

 I’ll share a very exciting self-study leadership development program in my next post.
