When making a decision, think about the triple constraint (scope, cost and time) and how your decision could impact these aspects.
"Credibility is earned by those who believe that you are trustworthy, knowledgable and competent to do the job."
It is said that with great power comes great responsibility; however, for great responsibility there must be credibility.
"Understanding the business value of the project will help you determine what must be done first"
When you are a project manager, everything is urgent.
"Make it a goal to be transparent when it comes to sharing your project's information. Discuss transparency with your team and stakeholders early in the project"
I have worked in many organizations where project managers and their teams work in silos and do not share any information about the project other than among them and with direct stakeholders.
"If you want to influence, convince or sway your stakeholders, you must learn to be persuasive"
Persuasiveness is a skill that is developed over years of experience.
“Empathy is a powerful weapon in your emotional intelligence arsenal. Make sure you deploy it properly”
When you are dealing with stakeholders, managing multiple tasks and other million things in your projects, sometimes it can be hard to pay close attention to how other people feel.
