By before they lived what they preached, they conveyed hope, courage and zest. You inspired, rather than to motivate! 3. Discipline who wants to be successful in projects that needs an operational excellence. Project successes can be achieved by vision nor by passion alone, this requires another property: the discipline. This has much consequence to do the consequence to hold things, to sweep anything under the rug with the absolute will to want to complete the project successfully. And again, the project manager has a role model. 4. Trust trust is the fourth basis for good governance.
If the employees trust the project manager, they go for him and the project through hell. The thing is much more complicated than the first three factors. While you can provide a vision, passion and discipline itself, the factor is trust”on the other. Trust is the opposite at the staff – you can not directly create it. The employees must trust his leadership. Who as an executive leadership”wants to see needs all four components: leadership vision = x passion x discipline x trust the mathematical principle is: a product is zero if one of the factors is zero.
Based on the leadership formula that means: one of the four components in a Business Executive not exist, you will speak to you any leadership skills. As well, a project manager fills out its leadership function, you can therefore use estimate by four questions: the project goal, he shared is how inspiring? How passionate is he with the thing? How disciplined he his project aim? How much to trust its employees? In hindsight no convincing answers to these four questions can be found in many failed projects. It is not an exaggeration, if holding: the most projects fail not for ambitious technical requirements, but on the lack of leadership of the project manager.
