As a PM, the first thing I do on a daily basis is have a brief catch up with the project team’s main members to get any concerns/ road-blocks they may be facing. Addressing issues from the beginning of the day contributes in efficient & timely deliveries.
Moreover, engaging with the team from the early hours of the day, also helps in understanding the team’s energy and supporting them to get into a better state of mind. Projects success, from my experience, is highly linked to project’s team performance and working environment. Thus, it is the project manager’s responsibility to take on servant leadership in supporting his/her team.
