The Persuasive Project Manager: Communicating for Understanding

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.” And my book 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.

In my book, I will explain:

•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 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.

Four Scenarios for the Future of Government: Collected Essays on Transforming Government

What is the Federal Government’s future?

Will the U.S. Government meet the digital transformation challenge by becoming a model of innovation?

Or will the state and local governments become the new centers of technological innovation and better delivery of government services?

The Federal Government might fail to digitally transform as American businesses and the American citizens progress further into the future?

Could the Federal government’s future be a slimmed-down government oversees a multitude of private organizations that deliver most government services?

In this collection of essays, Dr. Brantley chronicles how the U.S. Federal Government has changed during the open government movement. From 2010 to now, Dr. Brantley has written columns for the Public Administration Times that detail how the Federal, state and local governments are meeting the policy and management issues of artificial intelligence, the blockchain, and other emerging technologies.

Buy the book and join the discussion in how the Federal, state, and local governments are preparing for the rest of the 21st Century.
