Standing alone

"Deliberation is the work of many men. Action, of one alone." - Charles de Gaulle

Project management is a collaborative effort to be sure; however, a project manager often needs to stand alone and make the tough decisions for the benefit of the project - decisions that may be unpopular.  This is no different than any other leadership position - the willingness and steadfastness to stand alone against the majority in protection of the mission and the vision.
