What I enjoy most about being a project manager is:

As a Manager, I can coach my team to take the right decisions at the right time and how they can stay focussed and deliver value to the business. The most satisfying point comes when your team becomes high performing and self-motivated and you just watch them grow.

The three most important skills I use to successfully deliver projects are:

– People’s person. There are different individuals that work in a team, it is very important to have a good relationship with everyone in the team.
– Act as Coach/Facilitator rather than a Manager
– Understand business Strategy and align business goals with the team’s goals.

I build and nurture my professional network by:

Share knowledge and learn from other’s experience. I believe you can learn a lot by watching and listening to other people.

At the start of my career, the one thing I wish I had known is:

Think about the bigger picture and explore ways how you can deliver more value. I wish, everyone, when they are starting careers, doesn’t just get too focused on their work and rather think about how everyone is contributing and how it will help the organization and where this piece will fit in the bigger puzzle.

Women who have inspired me so far in my career journey are:

Women who are managing the work-life balance like a pro.

The most valuable advice I have ever been given is:

“Be the change you want to see”

My advice for women on finding success as a project manager is:

Networking, People management skills, and knowledge sharing.
