Applying Project Management Behavior
In episode 25 Naomi shared with us a study called Key Leadership Behaviors to Advance in Project Management. In this study we learned that there are six behaviors that are important for project managers to focus on to be successful in project management. Additionally, there are five more behaviors that are pertinent to both project managers and program managers.
As an aspiring PM, Jared has evaluated his current strengths and behaviors and is developing a personal development plan which will help him leverage his strengths and minimize his behavior gaps. In doing so, he will improve his ability to become a project manager.
Step 3 – Leverage your Strengths & Minimize Behavior Gaps
Naomi has written a blog post which identifies step 3 in Jared’s path to developing himself to become a PM.
The components of step three are:
- Identify mentors with similar project management behaviors.
- Participate in projects which will help build targeted project management skills.
- Attend targeted training that will enhance the project management behaviors.
- Create an action plan to leverage your strengths and minimize your behavior gaps.
