Have you ever gone on a road trip…and it seems nobody is fully satisfied when it's all over?…The driver wanted to get to the destination quickly,…someone else was concerned about being safe,…and yet another person wanted to check out the sights…along the way.…Several people with different objectives.…A better to have handled this situation…would have been to discuss the objectives,…goals, and approaches you would take to the drive,…and ensure you had everyone's interest in mind.…In a similar way, the performance objectives for the team…need to tie directly to the objectives for the overall product…of the project as seen by the customer.…

Along the way, discover how to negotiate for key resources, appreciate and maximize individual working styles, use emotional intelligence to add a personal approach to your management style, and resolve conflict.
