To be good at most things in life it requires an array of skills that come together to culminate into success. Being a successful project manager is no different. It requires a unique set and balance of skills in order to get the most out of your workers, the project, and yourself. Some of those skills may be more instinctual to some and not others, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t do your best to learn them.
Below is a great infographic from Brandeis University showing the soft and hard skills, and the balance you need between them both to be a successful Project Manager. Ultimately, even if you lack somewhere in these skills, knowing your strengths and weaknesses and how to work around them may be the most important skill of all.
