It doesn’t take a guru
Once your team is in place, you can focus on leading them as opposed to managing them day-to-day. Sure, Project Managers obviously have to “manage projects” – but great Project Managers lead projects to success, they don’t manage them at the micro level. They empower their team to make micro decisions on their behalf, allowing them to stand back and take a leadership role within the project.
The main difference between a leader and a manager is that a “leader” is responsible for setting the goals and motivating the team to achieve them. Whereas a manager is responsible for co-ordinating the work to achieve the goals set.
Make it fun
Yes projects are hard work, but they should also be fun. You should take time out after hours to do fun things with your team – whether it’s a meal out, tenpin bowling or a fun excursion trip. This helps to build the team ethos and reduce stress.
You will probably find that over time, tensions rise in the project and team members often clash due to the pressure they are under. By taking time out of the project to make it fun, tension will be reduced as people realize that in a social environment, they get on better than at work. Also, you don’t have to stop work to make it fun. Build it into your own Job Description!
How to Hire the right staff
Set 5 personal goals to achieve as a Project Manager. Then kick off building your high performing team by recruiting the right staff. It’s a well known fact that great projects are run by great teams. But finding the right staff to help you build a great team is one of the greatest challenges you’ll face as a Project Manager.
For every interview, you should:
Prepare a list of questions before you start.
Cover all areas of the Job Description, during the interview.
Address any strengths and weaknesses from their resume.
Consider the quality of the questions they’ve posed to you.
Be specific, direct and to the point at all times.

Before I read Building High Performing Teams, I had read some reviews which had me wondering if this one would be something I'd like, reviews from people whose opinions I trust. It's True, so Building High Performing Teams stayed on my "TBR Someday".
