Identify two or three essential skills you believe a project manager needs to have to be an effective communicator

A frequently repeated statistic is that 80-90 percent of a project manager’s job is communication. Whether or not that statistic is accurate, it is certainly true that a primary responsibility of a PM is communicating to project stakeholders, including your sponsor. Please read the PMI article, The Essential Role of Communications, which is part of your reading assignment, as well as this week’s textbook readings, to help inform your responses to the following questions:

  • What are examples of information that the project manager must regularly communicate to stakeholders? 
  • Identify two or three essential skills you believe a project manager needs to have to be an effective communicator.
  • How can project managers continue to improve their communication skills throughout their career?

Please note: Your initial post should consist of a minimum of 2 -3 paragraphs complete with external references. Your response postings are expected to be at least a full paragraph using cited material.
