About the Book
Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, by Simon Sinek
(Current price is under $10.00 for paperback plus shipping on Amazon or $7.99 for the kindle version. The book may also be available from your local library.)
Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty? Simon Sinek researched broadly on how leaders think, act, and communicate and found that many do so in the exact same way-and it's the complete opposite of what everyone else does. People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire.

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.
