The Importance of Establishing Your Leadership
Whether managing the remodeling of a major hotel in downtown New York City or the installation of a new Internet wiring within an office suite, you must take command if you are going to lead your project to success. You can use every technique in this book, but without assuming a leadership role for the project, you’ll get nowhere. Being a leader and the manager of the project are two distinctly different roles.
As a leader, you must command respect and take responsibility for guiding the project. One key way to command that respect is to be a trusted and reliable source of information on the project. As a leader, your team will expect you to be honest, competent, and in charge.
