20 Essential Tips for Project Leaders

1.  Spend your time pro-actively – the number ONE project leadership tip is to focus your attention on the long term as opposed to being reactive and firefight in the present moment. The more time you spend planning and building relationships, the fewer issues you will encounter later in the project.  2. Deliver on your promises  – it’s essential that what you say is credible and that your stakeholders trust your opinion.
