- [Announcer] This content is brought to you by Blinkist. (playful music) - [Instructor] Zachary Wong, "The Eight Essential People Skills for Project Management," solving the most common people problems for team leaders. Leading a team can be a psychological minefield. If you want to bring your project to completion, you'll have to motivate the unmotivated, inspire shirkers to pull their weight, and deal with uncommunicative superiors who expect you to read their minds. In short, people problems are everywhere. Solving them isn't an easy task. Today's workplaces are more horizontal than ever before and old school command and control management techniques are distinctly passe. That means you'll have to try to find line if you want to maintain your authority without alienating your employees. Luckily, you're not alone. World renowned management consultant Zachary Wong has crafted the ultimate hands-on guide to navigating this hazardous terrain. Built around eight-core people's skills, these blinks will show you how you can start aligning individual psychology with your organization's key objectives.
