When faced with challenging deadlines, and the pressures that go with managing projects, it’s easy to get caught up with ensuring that tasks get completed and checklists get ticked. This can be at the expense of having those difficult conversations with upset stakeholders and disgruntled team members; the people who ultimately determine whether the project is a success or failure.
Project managers and leaders need to be just as comfortable with managing conflict and motivating teams as they are with planning their work and conducting a risk analysis.
