As a manager you are required to form, motivate and lead various types of project teams, divisions, business units or companies. You are expected to get things done with the help of your staff. The difference in being successful or not depends on your communication and project management skills. Can you get the buy-in from your team? Can you really impact people and processes? Are you accepted as a leader? When you are in a process of change, you need to have a clear vision and must present a promising plan. You are a frontrunner in getting the change accepted and implemented. Your team might challenge you with questions, holding you up. They may dislike uncertainty. Your patience is tested. How can you get them for your plan?
