A good project manager follows the invitation to join the evening session with colleagues. We met at seven and we were the last ten guests. We enjoyed fresh brewed beer and wonderful Bratkartoffeln. We didn’t loot to our watch and no one left earlier because of meeting next morning. We had time.

A good project manager don’t speak about work in the bar. Ten of us, responsible for mechanical, electrical, chemical or nontechnical parts of the project, would have enough topics to fill weeks with work related discussions. We spoke about good films (Pulp fiction e. g.) and good music, about bicycle or run competitions, kids stories and other good stuff. We did story telling.

Good project managers are just nice people. That’s end of the story. That’s a beginning of next one.
