The Top 5 Soft Skills of Project Management

When we talk about the skills of project management, the focus is usually on the so-called ‘hard skills’. For example, completing a Gantt chart, or identifying milestones and deliverables. However, just as important are those essential soft skills that can make or break your project.

In this book, you will examine, practice and gain confidence in; creating and achieving a shared vision and defining the mission, the 30-second sales pitch, influence, conflict management, and assertiveness.

As Cornelius Fichtner said, “the P in PM is as much about people management as it is about project management”.
