About the Book
Leaders Eat Last,by Simon Sinek
(current price is around $16.45 for the hardcover plus shipping on Amazon or $13.00 for the kindle version. The book may be available at your local library)
In many successful organizations leaders are creating environments in which people naturally work together to do remarkable things. Other teams, no matter what incentives were offered, were doomed to infighting, fragmentation and failure. Why? Today’s workplaces tend to be full of cynicism, paranoia and self-interest. But the best organizations foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build stable, adaptive, confident teams, where everyone feels they belong and all energies are devoted to facing the common enemy and seizing big opportunities. The author illustrates how to create such an environment from range of examples, from government to business.

Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate four to six hours of reading, which converts to 4 - 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Category C: Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
