Book Club (North)

There are many ways to improve your professional knowledge and skills. One way is to increase your knowledge is by reading current and relevant project management books. We've created book clubs that are designed to be small discussion groups led by a facilitator.
 
It's an informal group meeting for a Saturday morning breakfast and discussion. One person serves as facilitator to guide and promote discussion. It is an excellent way to meet other chapter members and open a dialogue regarding trends and challenges experienced by those in project management roles.

Current book: 

Negotiate to Win! by Patrick Collins
 

Overview:

 
Negotiation is not just a process, it's an attitude-and one that we all can learn. Internationally recognized expert Patrick Collins presents an original, comprehensive guide to maximizing negotiation skills.

Illuminating techniques include: how to manipulate the environment and when to bluff or confront.
