Generally, we all assign project managers who are experienced, certified and possess project management core competencies, yet, studies show that most of the projects run over time and over budget and this usually comes with a high price. Project managers need to be leaders, influencers and able to build trust within the project team as well as internal and external stakeholders to lead projects.
A successful leader sees an opportunity and captures it. Is a coach, an encourager, a communicator, a coordinator, a passionate, a listener, a motivator, and inspirer, welcomes change, has a vision, cares about the people he or she leads, and knows he or she can't do it alone.
