Top 12 Non-technical Skills a Project Manager Needs

It’s not enough to know all the technical Project Management skills. To succeed, you need a load of non-technical skills too. Here are my top 12.

This video is safe for viewing in the workplace.

This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy

What Do I Mean by Non-Technical Skills?

First, by non-technical, I mean skills that are not the key PM skills like scheduling, risk management, resource planning. Communication goes without saying. So, I don’t include it.

Instead, let’s get more granular. Most of these have a big element of communication in them:

  1. Leadership
  2. Facilitation
  3. Feedback
  4. Briefing
  5. Presenting
  6. Influencing
  7. Negotiating
  8. Problem Solving
  9. Decision Making
  10. Conflict Resolution
  11. Financial Skills
  12. Strategic thinking
