  1. Identify and describe five leadership skills.
  2. Explain how each leadership skill is applicable in the following Planning Phase Project Management situation.

On May 1, the PM of a computer-system upgrade project sets up a synchronous Webex meeting with the project team for May 15.

Each team member has been assigned the task of estimating the duration and identifying the precedence relationships associated with a set of tasks in the WBS. This information will be used to convert the WBS into a project schedule. In the May 15 meeting, each team member is to review his or her assigned tasks, explaining the forecast and precedence relationships for each one and the rationale.

In the meeting, Sue joins the meeting from Connecticut in the same conference room as the PM, who hosts the meeting. She is prepared with all of her assigned tasks estimated and precedence relationships between her assigned tasks and other tasks, both within her assigned set of tasks and from the larger set of projects associated with the entire project, identified. She is able to clearly convey her rationale and analysis approach.

Ronald joins from a business unit in California. He has not yet started the work and has nothing to present. He explains that he did not fully understand the purpose of the meeting.

Lily joins from China. She indicates that she has been overloaded and was able to estimate the task durations, but not the precedence relationships. It also appears that Lily may not understand what is meant by "precedence relationships." It is a bit of a struggle to understand Lily’s English.

Mark joins later from Toulouse, France and indicates that he was confused about the time of the meeting, given that he is in a different time zone, and also that his manager has assigned him to another project, so he is no longer to work on this project.
