Some people are seen natural leaders. When they speak others listen. When they walk into a room they are noticed. They were born to lead and everyone knows it. This is a stereotype. Inspirational leadership is just one of many styles. Another major style is leading by example. People follow these leaders because they are good at what they do. Often these leaders are not comfortable with their leadership. They might ask, “Why are you following me?” The answer is, “because you are good at what you do.” They slowly and surely develop a reputation of getting the job done right. People follow them because they will succeed in the long run. Next, different situations require different leadership styles. Not everybody is alike. Your leadership comes out when the situation requires it. Here are some of the situations most project managers will see.
Personal Power Points
Everybody is a leader. You may lead by inspiration or you may lead by example. Situations will come you way and you will be needed. The key is to be prepared with the Personal Power Points.
In the Tough Teams workshop, Creating High Performance Project Teams, we focus on leading project teams. There is no single method for achieving team results, instead we show how to read the situation and run with it.
