Does your project team see you as a leader or a manager? Project teams must be led rather than just managed in order to unleash their full potential, energy and enthusiasm. The Lead Dog Has the Best View examines what it takes to make the crucial transition from project manager to project leader. All too often project managers rely on their technical skills and computer-generated information about project status in their attempts to achieve success, thus confusing management with leadership. Rarely does a project fail due to lack of technical skills. Instead, relationship and communication difficulties play a key role in poor project results.

This book provides a person-centered, results-driven approach to project leadership not found elsewhere. It is intended to be a frequently used tool, not just read once and put on a shelf. Each chapter includes practical exercises and checklists that can be used individually or with a project team. A valuable addition to any project manager's toolkit, The Lead Dog Has the Best View will make project work more fulfilling on both professional and personal levels.
