Book of the Month for July, 2019

The Persuasive Project Manager 

by Dr. Bill Brantley, PMP, PMI-ACP


Could you manage your projects better? Do you have problems with misunderstandings, misinterpretations, and missed opportunities? You may have heard that “90% of a project manager’s work is communication.” The Persuasive Project Manager will help you communicate for understanding instead of just giving information. You will learn how to manage and coordinate meaning – and understanding – in your projects.

The Persuasive Project Manager explains:

  • What Aristotle taught us about effective communication and why his 2,000-year old advice is still vital to persuasive communication.
  • How the “Coordinated Management of Meaning” can help you develop and lead high-performing project teams.
  • Why the project manager is the communication hub and how you can better manage the flow of project communication.
  • Why project managers need to master both emotional intelligence and cultural intelligence to be more effective in negotiations and leading teams.
  • How to recognize and overcome cognitive biases to better communicate your message.
  • How to effectively communicate online with a distributed workforce by being virtually “present.”

You will receive workplace-tested, practical tips and tools to help you improve your project management communication style. Learn about the latest communication research and methods to create a culture of understanding and increase your chances for project success.
