When you lead a Project you need to ensure your team has all the right skills but more importantly all the right team attributes to be successful.
- If the team is to succeed it needs to be acting as a team and not a collection of individuals.
- For individuals to act in unison with one another they need to be confident in their abilities and contribution to the team
- Confidence comes within but can be coached from you as well.
As the Project Manager your job is to ensure your team members act with confidence and that is especially hard when things aren’t going well as happens on every project. Look for the signs when confidence wains in individuals and use your leadership skills to take that person aside and bolster them up. Share concerns but also instill the confidence back into them. You will see the difference if done well and your team will thrive from the confidence displayed by them.
