In today's conversation, we are delving into one particular area of project management – mastering the essential soft skills. Soft skills, often dubbed as 'power skills,' form the backbone of project management, shaping the culture, ethics, motivation, and creativity in a team. As the world of project management continues to evolve, the emphasis on these skills has grown significantly. Yet, despite their importance, they often remain underappreciated and underdeveloped.
So we aim to change that narrative by uncovering the essential role of soft skills in project management with Michaela Flick, a seasoned project manager, trainer, and author. Together with her husband Mathias Flick, she wrote the book Understanding Practical Project Management and our interview is based on chapter 8. We’ll provide insights into how mastering soft skills can unlock a team's potential, foster creativity, and ultimately lead to the successful completion of projects.
