Leadership in Project Management
Carmelo L. Neri, Consultant, Philippines, Member
I think Rod Chambers is right, leading is the right way in managing a project. If there is a need to stay late, you have to be in the project, you have to set a good example of what a leader is. 1. Always be on time 2. Pick up small items that are left off. 3. Be the last person to go home 4. Be honest 5. Assume ownership 6. Care for your workers safety. Try "sheeperding" 7. Find time to listen.

Project Leadership Style
Tomas Martinez, Business Consultant, Mexico, Member
In projects, you should have a leadership style combining guiding, participative and training styles, to motivate the work team clearing them how their work is important for the organization. In this way their commitment to the objectives is maximized. Also it is important to have the work team participating in the goals and concerns of the projects to obtain a working participatory environment. Finally it is important to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the work team, and link to their personal expectations and careers.

Leadership in Project Management
Muhammad Tahir, Student (MBA), United Kingdom, Member
A project leader should have broad vision and good knowledge about the most important project issues and problems. He/she must have a problem solving mindset. In the project management where all processes are dependant on eachother's completion, time management skills are essential. Project manager needs to rasise the moral of his/her staff high so that every single person linked with the completion of a process understands the importance of his/her job.

Project Leadership Core Values & Rite of Passages
Linda R Smith
A project leader introduces the core principles as the rite of passage for the staff to adopt and focus on as they enter the project development planning stages. It is imperative that as the goal-path direction is established and integration of the development and planning follows the mission purpose and goals, the main core principles will not change direction. This is the adopted rite of passage adopted by the by-laws or agreement of the entire team for worthwhile purpose; the ideas, creative insight and knowledge base building within each of us the solid foundational guiding paths and project completion we result with. Within the core principles, there should be established trust, credibility & competency. The leader then can focus on training and skills sets which allow the autonomy of each team member within the project to excel, be the best they can be and complete their portion of the project.

Leadership in Project Management
Daniel Wachira, Manager, Kenya, Member
From what Carmelo has written, it is clear that a leader in any project must be able to work with his mind and heart. A vision bearer must have these two and they lead any given team.

Leadership in Project Management
Adil hussain
Always look for the things ignored and left by others... Be like a hawk and take control of the workers. Appreciate the good work and learn to measure the things which are under your control. Be proactive.

Project Leader: a Manager of Resources
Jide Olaniran
A Project manager or leader is a manager of resources. Apart from managing human resources needed for the successful completion of the project in time and at cost, he must be able to manage other resources like funds and material resources. Because he would be responsible if the project fails.

If a Distinction is Required
Bill Collins
A leader is the person who makes sure the right things are done.
A manager is the person who makes sure things are done right.

Leadership is Key
Maxwell Chrysolite
For the success of any project, leadership is very important. The leader determines how the resources, work plan etc will be utilised and managed. S/he will give the sense of direction and if that is not provided, the whole project will fail.
We need not forget that the leader is also part of the team. If a team has a bad coach or captain, you don't expect it to win, but rather lose.
