The Conscious Project Leader [Book Review] | Girl’s Guide to PM

The Conscious Project Leader: How to Create a Culture of Success for Your Projects, Your Team and Yourself is a new book written by Collin D. Ellis. Is it worth the read? In his book, Ellis talks about the three major elements of leading a project. He explains how culture, methods, and leadership are the three factors that determine whether a project will be successful or not while mixing in humor to make it an easy read.

Key Takeaways:

  • I was lucky enough to find Colin D Ellis through talking to Ellen Maynes. It didn’t take much browsing on his website to realise that it was going to be my kind of book.
  • Ellis writes eloquently and with humour, and it was a pleasure to read, even while I was stuck on a train with a headache.
  • The book is light on methods and tools and heavy on stakeholder engagement, authentic leadership and emotional maturity.
