Construction 201 - Essential Leadership Skills for PMS and Coordinators 

Narrowing our focus following Construction 101, we look into the characteristics that make up a great project manager (PM) or project coordinator. It is widely held that the PM is responsible in the ICI project delivery organizational chart for profitable execution of the project. Leading to financial gain and overall project success; but what makes a PM able to do what they do well?

Many workshops available focus on technology or process systems for construction accounting and other functions, those are narrowly focused skills that can be taught and learned, and TCIC has workshops for those too, but few spend time focusing on the person behind the skill. The soft skills that allows a project manager to be client facing one moment, and fighting fires on site the next moment.
