Managing a project can be quite overwhelming, especially when we’re talking about high-stakes projects. However, by using a few dedicated techniques, you can make the process a lot easier to manage and ensure your projects are done on time, budget and target.
In this article, we’ve included two essential pillars of achieving project management success you should keep in mind.
Uncover Your Team’s Superpowers – and Mobilize Them
One of your primary responsibilities as a project manager is to identify what are your team’s top strengths. This way, you can best allocate available resources and find the traction to move forward.
This is something Ron Black has plenty of experience with. As a Fortune 500 marketing VP and advisor to over 250 start-ups, he’s helped business professionals uncover the best in themselves and their teams. So he knows firsthand what incredible results this strategy can provide.
He’s created an entire powerful program around it. Called “Trust Your Cape. Mobilize Your Everyday Leadership Superpowers“, the presentation is meant to guide professionals towards project management success.
The carefully-crafted content focuses on unveiling the basics of leading a project with clear intention and how having the right attitude every step of the way is the secret to success.
Maintaining your integrity, being there for others, and striving for top performance will always surface the best in you as a leader – as well as the best in your team.
Furthermore, leaders who ask questions, who observe and engage with their team are the ones who are always effective.

Tweak Your Management Style for Today’s Virtual Workplace
Working with dispersed or remote teams on a project can make it difficult to keep everyone on the same page and ensure the effective communication needed for achieving project management success.
Peter Ivanov is an award-winning Manager and Virtual Teams Expert, so he is familiar with all the challenges which arise when managing a team that is scattered across different locations and time zones.
One of his key findings is that a common reason why projects of this kind fail is that team members working remotely feel isolated or lose the motivation.
So one of your priorities is to ensure everyone working on the project, regardless of their location, stays connected to the team’s purpose and goals by:
- establishing a precise project agenda
- communicating that agenda to all relevant parties
- providing constant feedback.
Now, Peter teaches project managers and leaders from all over the world the tools to build and lead Virtual Power Teams successfully. So you could be the next to benefit from his extensive 20 + years of experience.
