How to be a successful project manager as technology advances

Are you concerned about how artificial intelligence is going to impact project management?

It’s important to understand the impact of AI on project management if you want to be a successful project manager. Artificial Intelligence is great for accomplishing tactical tasks… But what does that mean for you as a professional and as a project manager?

You’ll need to re-strategize the roles and activities you focus your attention on. So, let’s talk about what skills you need to hone as the popularity of artificial intelligence continues to rise.

Skill #1: Emotional Intelligence

Artificial intelligence will be able to do things quickly that would take us time and energy to accomplish.

We’ll be spending less time and energy creating documents and collecting information as Artificial Intelligence continues to rise in popularity. But, there are lots of other places we can direct that time and energy.

Human connection is going to be more prevalent in our role as project managers, and one of the biggest skills you need to acquire when it comes to human connection is emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence is all about understanding the inward aspect of what’s going on around you and picking up on social cues so that you can read the room accurately.

Have you ever walked into a meeting room and you felt that the energy was negative or stressed? This is emotional intelligence. It’s all about picking up on non-verbal cues and understanding how to respond in such a way – especially when leading a team – that productivity and collaboration won’t be compromised.
