The highest functioning form of management is leadership. Great managers synthesize all of these skills into a form of leadership. That’s what separates the great from the good. There is an inefficiency in the market – not many people teach how to manage and lead. Too many people only look at the bottom line without taking note of the process you need to get to that bottom line. Many people function as mere "witnesses" in their job without even knowing it. Let's make those witnesses into actual managers. Because leadership is not a spectator sport. Learn how to reinforce your leadership skills to find a new, value-added approach to being productive.
It's time to answer the question: "Are You a Project Manager or Project Witness?"
