5 Mistakes New Project Managers At All Times Make (Part 1)

As the world is moving at its rapid growth, the higher the demand for the project, the more efforts it takes for every project manager, especially new ones. Thus, project managers have to deal with tons of challenges during the project progress. In order not to be in the same tough scenario and to gain understanding about five mistakes of new project managers that are never going out-of-date.

1. The lack of a common voice

As a new project manager, you may tend to focus only on how effective the work can be that rarely do you mind how your team can be affected by every decision you make. Down to earth, you have to learn to work well with your team first, then the success of the project. If there is too much “me”, not enough “we”, which means your team lacks solidarity, there is 101% of unsteadiness of the whole project.

Obviously, when there’s no common voice among the team; you-the leader do things yourself, which leaves even worse situations.

Every member of your team is one factor to the work’s triumph, you need to have a wide view from different perspectives to gather their opinions and be open to their suggestions then reach to a clear-sighted pace with a common voice.

2. The lack of risk management

New project managers seem to have their project off-track despite how carefully they have planned for it. 

By being afraid that the project would be jinxed, they skip in-depth discussion about preventable problems and obstacles along the road. Failing to have a plan B in case you hit a snag can cost you a lot of money and time.

This is the right time to discuss with your team about possible situations and make an action plan for each preparation. A detailed risk management plan will make you feel more confident to handle any circumstances.
