Required Soft Skills:
The individual needs to have great communication and facilitation skills. Meaning, they will be required to lead in-depth, interactive and detailed conversations (meetings) with representatives of multiple teams providing multiple inputs. As we look to Project Management soft skills, this individual needs to be solid at facilitating effective meetings and conversations – defining action items with owners and dates, and not reserved about ensuring accountability with the owners, keeping teams on track and driving issues and blockers to resolution. They should possess a sense of drive and motivation for the project to be successful, with a sense of urgency when warranted.
Ideally, this all needs to be handled with demonstrated leadership soft skills such as empathy, courage and charisma. Kindness and a sense of humor are always welcome too.
