5 Must Know Tips To Be A Better Project Manager

In today’s world, the role of a project manager is much more than simply overseeing the occasional project. Between defining and communicating project objectives to your team, procuring the information and materials to complete the project, assigning tasks, and managing the constraints of the project, there is very little (if any) of the job that the project manager is not responsible for.

If you’re starting out in project management or want to improve your skills, here are 5 tips to help you fine-tune your skills to be the best project manager possible.

1. Streamline Communication

You’ve heard the saying before: communication is key. This couldn’t be more true in the role of project manager. Quite often people need to hear what you’re saying several times before it becomes engrained in their brains. Instead of repeating yourself over and over again, say the same message in a variety of different formats. Email, meetings, text, note reminders: these are all ways to convey your message in different ways without seeming repetitive.

"Transformational Project Leadership" Masterclass Series

My friend and colleague, Kevin Ciccotti, has spent the last 8+ years serving the Project Management community through his various coaching and training programs. In that time, he has established himself as an authority in helping Project and Program Managers to learn the most impactful interpersonal skills and tools to become more effective project leaders.

He is launching a first-of-its-kind 6-month “Transformational Project Leadership” Masterclass Series that is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 12. This is truly groundbreaking work that brings the worlds of personal transformation and project leadership together in a way that hasn’t been done before.

It’s a combination of live training coupled with follow up 1:1 private coaching for every participant. He's been working more than 2 years to create the structure and format, and this work is going to have a profound impact on how Project and Program Managers connect with and lead their project teams.

I know Kevin to be someone who delivers value in everything he does, and his mission is to help PM’s alleviate their most common challenges and sources of conflict, and to actually have more success and fun while leading their project teams. I invite you to learn more now!
