Soft Skills are often the most misunderstood and under-developed tools in the Project Manager’s toolkit, yet these are almost always the capabilities that will make or break a project. Knowing why, when, and how to apply soft skills can create strong relationships with the toughest stakeholders and build teams that execute with energy and passion. We’ll look at some select skills over the life of a project as well as talk about some ways to help you bring out your best.
