Being a project manager I enjoy most is Planning. As I believe planning is the foundation and if done well probability of success is very high.

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

1) Motivating team to deliver as planned
2) Analytic skills so as to be quick in the decisions
3) Risk Taker as at times one needs to believe in self and team and take some calculative risks.

I build and nurture my professional network by:

1) By Mentoring and Coaching professionals,
2) Sharing ideas with fellow professionals on LinkedIn and in-person
