Embrace the principles of emotional
intelligence in project management

Increase the probability of project success with soft skills like emotional intelligence.

Today, more and more organisations across multiple industries are adopting project-based processes—in fact, it is estimated that by 2025, most of the work undertaken by businesses will be project-based. 

While project management has become pivotal, however, there is still a lot of confusion about what makes someone a successful and effective project manager. 

Due to its project-based approach, it is easy to view the discipline as something that requires technical skills, but more often than not, project managers manage the emotional needs of project teams as well.

Here, it becomes apparent that modern project managers need to have the emotional intelligence to manage employees and to ensure the success of each project undertaken.

This requires creating an environment where each person feels valued, is able to communicate freely and effectively, and make strategic decisions with confidence.

So, how can project managers embrace principles of emotional intelligence?

Today, this trickles down to creating a framework that fosters and centralises these traits and values.
