Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is C.

Throughout the project, the project team leaders are responsible for influencing, mentoring, monitoring, and evaluating the performance of the team and the project. Controlling the performance of the team and the project is not a specific leadership activity of project team leaders and is actually considered more of a managing activity than a leading activity. Remember, leadership is about self-direction, while management is about control.

Details for each option:

A. Influencing the performance of the team and the project
Incorrect. Influencing, as opposed to a managerial act of telling, is critical to leadership.

B. Monitoring the performance of the team and the project
Incorrect. Monitoring is the preferred action of a leader over controlling what people do.

C. Controlling the performance of the team and the project
Correct. Controlling is a managerial function.

D. Prioritizing efforts
Incorrect. Continuously prioritizing work by reviewing and adjusting as necessary is a leadership duty.
