Higher Education CoP December 2018 Critical Soft Skills for Project Managers


Who is responsible for resolving conflicts, people management, and stress management? The project manager of course! Soft skills development is a critical part of project management.

Soft skills are the personality traits, attitudes, habits, and behaviors you display when working with others.

Learning Objectives:

  • Introduce foundational behaviors  of project management
