"People will sit up and take notice if you sit up and take notice of what makes them sit up and take notice."
Frank Romer

Project leadership is the ability to guide a team in such a way that each member of the team feels the project leader is the best person to help them achieve their individual objectives. Because today’s project teams are composed of highly skilled professionals and lead by individuals with limited formal authority, leadership skills are often the difference between a project’s success and its failure.

Successful leaders create an environment where people are empowered and the penalty for failure is minimized. By understanding the objectives of the project, believing in the importance of these objectives, and being able to convince the team of this importance, leaders are able to effectively lead the project from the center.
