Which Type of Project Manager Are You?

Project management is like putting together a puzzle: you have an idea of what the finished product will look like, but the steps that you take to get there depend on the group to work together and arrange the pieces in a way that guarantees a successful result. No matter the size or scope of the project in reach, it’s crucial to have a good project manager to guide the team.

According to Zoho, the following are the seven essential characteristics of a project manager:
  • Guidance: possess great leadership qualities
  • Adaptable: easy-going and accepts others’ opinions
  • Detail oriented: pays attention to every detail
  • Delegator: calls in the team to help when there’s a lot of work to be done
  • Vision: plans to achieve the result on time
  • Creative: thinks outside the box
  • Resourceful: takes on a never-give-up approach

These traits form different project manager personalities as shown in Zoho's infographic below:
