The verdict is in... 192 leadership books, 9 top leadership experts, and 31 studies on business management reveal two startling facts. The first? Effective communication is essential to effective leadership. The second? $200,000 Ivy-League educations and $2,000 management courses neglect it.
The disappointing result? Most leaders are weak communicators. This undermines them no matter what they do right, degrading their confidence and stagnating their career. Things start slipping through the cracks. Progress slows. People don't know what to do, or worse, why they should do it.
It rarely stops there... Weak communication leads to inefficiency, a climate of distrust, and missed opportunities. It creates a culture of scarcity, fear, and uncertainty. And it forces everyone to work harder but get less done, condemning entire teams, branches, and even organizations to dysfunction.

About The Monthly Book Club
The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
You can also join the PMIWDC Amazon Book Club to suggest future books or see what books we plan to read in the future.
