What they say
Management Director, Ile de France
Ensuring that people talk to each other, understand one another, join forces, that is a project manager’s duty. To do this, project managers have to be technical, empathetic, assertive and do everything in their power to help the operation run smoothly. The stakeholders in a project generally agree as to whether things are going well or not so well. A successful project gives everyone a sense of satisfaction. Orchestrating the achievement of a shared aim like that is what gives what we do meaning.
Interpersonal intelligence, at the heart of our profession, is only really possible in an environment which promotes the principles of technical expertise, insistence on the highest standards of quality and a sense of commitment. The synergies between the Group’s departments, various methods which have been developed in-house and the convergence made possible by our digital tools, all provide the support each individual needs for their personality to bring out and make the best use of their own talent.
