Book Club (Joint Virtual - North/South)

Power Skills


There are many ways to improve your professional knowledge and skills. One way is to increase your knowledge by reading current and relevant project management books. We've created book clubs that are designed to be small discussion groups led by a facilitator.

It's an informal group meeting for a Saturday morning where one person serves as the facilitator to guide and promote discussion. It is an excellent way to meet other chapter members and open a dialogue regarding trends and challenges experienced by those in project management roles.
And, earn PDUs!

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet the author of our featured book!

We are thrilled to announce that Neal Whitten, the acclaimed writer of Power Skills That Lead to Exceptional Performance, will be joining us for our March book club meeting! This is a unique chance to hear from the author himself about his creative process, inspirations, and insights into the book. You will also get to ask him your burning questions and share your thoughts on the book.

This is a book club meeting like no other, so make sure you RSVP as soon as possible. We can’t wait to see you there and have a lively discussion with Mr. Whitten!


Current Book:


This book is for leaders, those who aspire to be leaders, and all employees who desire to take their performance to a higher level.

Do you have the Power Skills needed to achieve the level of success you desire? Power Skills are a top asset in today’s ever-changing workplace. This book reveals Power Skills that promote accountability and how to think and act effectively for success.

But this book does far more. It describes Power Skills that, if taught and nurtured to all employees of an organization or company, will result in the organization continuously and holistically evolving. Adopting these Power Skills can lead to exceptional performance both for individuals and for their organizations.

Power Skills discussed include:

  • break the rules occasionally,
  • never avoid necessary confrontation,
  • think for yourself,
  • manage daily to your top three priorities,
  • routinely practice boldness and courage,
  • decide who you chose to be,
  • be a good actor,
  • and so much more.

I welcome you to come along for a potentially transformative and game-changing ride in your personal pursuit of the adventure called life.
