Project management - leadership and team

Are you still working in a group or are you part of a team? Projects are social systems. Understanding and shaping this system is crucial for the project’s success. Role clarification is a key success factor for project teams. In successful teams all participants have a high level of social competence in terms of communication, giving feedback, shaping (virtual and intercultural) cooperation, motivation or conflict management. The model of positive leadership for projects offers a tool for developing a given team into a high performance team.
