Project Managers, Make Your Team Sing Your Praises with 4 Tips

Ever heard anyone speaking highly of their project managers? Some of you may nod, while others will roll their eyes. Whether a newly managed team or old, Leigh Espy shares 4 tips to make all sing praises of their project managers.

How Project Managers Can Make Teams Admire Them

Project managers should genuinely care for their team as that improve honesty, bonding, and morale among team members. This also increases productivity, collaboration, and ownership. Following are the 4 tips project managers should use to make their team sing their praises:

Ask How You Could Help Out: Project managers are good at allocating tasks as per resource capabilities. However, your job does not end there. Find out if they are clear with their assignment expectations. Contribute to their problem-solving and resolve issues as early as possible.

Communicate Clearly: Because you have frequently communicated with the clients, you know exactly what they want. Communicate that to your team clearly about the key milestones and goals. Nobody likes their hard work wasted so keep them posted about minor modifications to project details also.

Acknowledge Them: Project managers usually appreciate the whole team at large. However, give credits where it is due and let the whole team know about individual achievements too. This will boost the team member as well as inspire others to work harder. You can either ask them to talk or demonstrate their achievements. Highlight the work during your presentation or send an appreciation email marking the management.

Bring in the Fun Factor: Project managers feel like they are shuttling from one task to another every day. Work seems never to end. However, to keep the team motivated, sprinkle some Fun Friday freebies or Lazy Monday snacks. Throw in group activities to break the ice or simply to make great team memories.
