Method and process are important in project management, but knowing how to use them is even more so. As a project manager you can increase your effectiveness most by developing your soft skills, recognising that finesse can be more effective than force. Once developed, you will find that these skills are transferable across project types and whole industry sectors. This book illustrates the application of NLP to develop competencies, hence better equipping you to communicate across cultures, reframe problems, manage stakeholder groups, resolve conflicts, motivate teams and become an even better leader.

From the Inside Flap:

'To be effective, project managers must learn the language of the boardroom. Peter and this book will help you to do that.' Neville Bain Chairman of the Institute of Directors Author of 'The effective Director', 'The people advantage', 'Winning ways through corporate governance', and 'Successful Management' ----- 'If all books placed as much importance on soft skills as this one then perhaps we might start to see a sea change in the way projects are managed. All too often the fact it's people that deliver projects is forgotten, something not lost on this book which should be applauded.' Chris Field PMP MBCS CITP President PMI UK Chapter ----- 'I recommend every Project Manager reads this book (in addition to PRINCE2!)" Andy Murray CDir Lead author PRINCE2 2009 refresh; Director, Outperform ----- 'Soft skills are the difference that makes the difference in leadership of change. Getting change to work well is really all about people. Peter tirelessly promotes this in project management, both through Alchemy, and more specifically in this book, which is a major contribution to the discipline.' Paul Matthews, Certified Trainer in NLP MD, Alchemy for Managers ----- 'Important contextualised contribution to the development of competence in the so-called soft skills, hard to master, but an indispensable component of effective practice in a profession whose time has come.' Andrew Bragg, Chief Executive Association for Project Management ----- 'For anyone who believes that people skills are important in the delivery of projects then this book is for you.' Paul Goodge Vice President, Bid & Programme Management, Thales ----- 'NLP is a perfect technique to help all project players to improve in this area - enabling misunderstandings to be avoided or spotted and difficult issues confronted which will lead to better project outcomes. I recommend that all project players spend time to learn from the topic and improve their own capability and performance.' Martin Samphire Vice President, Hitachi Consulting ----- 'Read it, apply it and not only will it make you a more effective project manager, it will also ensure the projects you are engaged in are more successful.' Steve Jenner Chairman, Portfolio Management Specific Interest Group, APM (Formerly Director of IT for Criminal Justice) ----- 'With NLP our people can learn to be even more effective in their dealings with their teams, clients and key stakeholders. The release of Peter's book is perfectly timed and fills a large void in the market.' Peter Chana MAPM, MCIOB Programme Director, Bovis Lend Lease Consulting Chairman, Woodnesbrough FC (Juniors) ----- 'The effectiveness of project leaders is defined by their level of emotional intelligence in conjunction with real experience in end to end delivery. Peter demonstrates both and we are pleased to work with him. His new book gives away some of his trade secrets and all project professionals would benefit from buying a copy.' Matt Rawson MBA (Project Management), Certificated Project Manager Director, Programme, Project and Change Management Practicus - The Outcome Delivery Partner ----- 'Peter's inspirational approach uses NLP to enhance project and project manager success. Common sense, mature, and professional.' Sam Brown Director of Projects Enable East (an NHS Trust) ----- "This book, authored by a respected practitioner, provides useful and clearly articulated comparisons between the various methodologies assisting the reader to be better prepared and able to use the right tool at the right time for their given role.' Russel Jamieson Chair, APM Branch Steering Group Fellow, Association for Project Management BT Innovate and Design ----- 'One of the main reasons for projects of all sizes failing to deliver is project the manager's lack of soft skills for managing people. In this book Peter helps you to develop the skills in dealing with team members and stakeholders that are essential to be a successful project manager.' David Lillicrap Head of Programme Management London Borough of Ealing ----- 'Peter has demonstrated underpinning skills in leading, motivating and influencing in his work over many years. We are glad that he has now captured the essence of these and many other skills in his book on application of NLP for professional project managers.' Chris Dunn Director, Hays Transformational Leadership ----- This book on the people side of project management provides structure to help you as a project manager, and the teams around you, deliver successful projects. Peter has made this subject an enjoyable read bought to life with practical illustrations from his own extensive project management career. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to project professionals whether starting out on their career, or those with more experience seeking to constantly improve their performance'. Alistair Godbold Deputy Chairman, APM ----- This invaluable book provides a fascinating insight into how NLP can help people to deliver better projects, written by someone with a wealth of project and management experiences to draw from.' Dr. Brendan D'Cruz (Registered Project Professional) Head of Department at University of Wales, Newport Committee Member of the BCS Project Management Specialist Group (PROMS-G) Committee Member of the APM Education Network Advisory Group (ENAG) ----- 'Peter's experience has created a valuable read that helps managers get the best out of their interactions with those they work with. It realises that people, not process and tools, are the key ingredient in making change happen' Graham Coe Director, Serco ----- 'Effective Programme and Project management is about more than methodology. This book helps you to reflect on the skills and behaviours you use day to day and offers helpful routes for improved results and development as a PPM professional.' Diane Richards Head of Programme Support Services Compliance and Enforcement, HMRC
