The 5 Team Leadership Principles for Project Success

7,435 views

Published on

We all need and thrive for successful projects. But what does it take to get there? There is no doubt that good project management is a critical success factor. But is it really sufficient? The author doesn’t think so. He claims that effective project management needs to have a solid foundation in project leadership AND team work. It takes a performing team to run a project successfully and it takes effective leadership to empower the team to do so. This is why team building is a decisive factor for project success.

Based on his experience, having managed projects of all sizes, from a few to 24,000 person days effort, in various industries, Thomas Juli identifies the five team leadership principles that build a foundation for effective team building. They include building a common project vision, nurturing team collaboration, cultivating team performance, promoting team learning and ensuring team delivery. These five principles encompass the core of effective leadership in a team. The lecture will present these five principles of effective project leadership and show how they can help build and manage a performing and winning team.
