5 Principles for Successful Project Leadership (Part 1)

A successful project is all that a project manager craves for. There is no doubt that competent project management plays a critical role in project success. Also, without leadership, project management can hit rock bottom. This article will draw out 5 principles any project managers need to keep in mind for a thriving project.

In any project, the project leader must align the project vision with its project objectives. A vision helps you see a bigger picture of your project. As a project leader, you must start with an aligned vision, knowing where you stand, where you want to get to, and how you will get there. Also, everyone involved in the project must act on a mutually understood vision to ensure the ultimate goal of the project. The key is that people need to feel attached to the vision so that they are inspired and give the best of themselves during the project. 


As a team with great collaboration can make the impossible become possible, it is crucial to encourage collaboration if you want to yield the project objectives and vision. Also, collaboration is the heart and soul of teamwork that enhances the team performance and helps the team achieve the defined goals. To promote collaboration, you must act as a role model first, such as: sharing information openly, giving and accepting constructive feedback, being a good team player and working collaboratively with your team.


In the role of a project leader, it is essential to build an environment that encourages performance. Building a vision and nurturing collaboration can go up in smoke if you cannot bring your team to the performance stage on both the individual and team levels. To do this, you can be the role model, empower your team by giving them the opportunities they need to perform well and celebrate the competent performance of individuals or the team as a whole.
