The Power of Project Management Leadership added to Free Book Drawings


Book by Canadian project management leader Laszlo Retfalvi added to prize list in PM World Library June and July drawings for free books

20 May 2014 – Dallas, Texas, USA and Ottawa, Canada – PM World has announced that the new book by Laszlo A. Retfalvi, The Power of Project Management Leadership: Your Guide on How to Achieve Outstanding Results, has been added to the books to be given away in free book drawings through the PM World Library in June and July.  Publication of the book was announced in April 2014.

140520-pmwj23-retfalvi-IMAGEPerfect for all levels of project management practitioners, The Power of Project Management Leadership lays out critical groundwork for creating successful and outstanding Project Managers. Based on extensive and practical industry experience, the Project Management Leadership Model© is used as a framework and guide to better understand and develop the critical skills needed to achieve this highly sought-after level of project manager performance.

The model emphasizes four areas that are crucial to becoming an outstanding Project Manager: project management expertise, core leadership skills, a risk-smart attitude, and accountability-based behaviour. Project Managers cannot simply ignore, skip, or work around any of these areas, and the model describes important attributes PMs require for each area.  The book also includes a very important assessment aspect, allowing readers to assess their skills using the model and determine areas that may need improvement.

According to Laszlo Retfalvi, “I am happy to provide two free books for the PM World Library drawings.  PM World has supported me for several years, so I am pleased to return the favor.  The library is a great resource for project managers; I hope a few copies of my book can add to the value.”

David Pells, PM World Library director, stated: “Laszlo Retfalvi is an excellent writer, and this is a good book.  We are excited that he has offered a couple of copies for our drawings. The winners will be highly grateful.”

Written in an easy-to-understand, concise, non-technical manner, it is a valuable addition to any Project Manager’s library. For more information on the book, the author or how to purchase, visit www.pm-leadership.com.
