Project managers are frequently given the task of driving results without having any authority to back up their directives. This book helps project managers succeed when the deck is stacked against them. The secret to running spectacular projects is engaging and inspiring every person who is part of your project, so they feel responsible for the outcome. And that engagement starts with you -- you have to feel engaged and inspired yourself before you can inspire others. The author draws on principles from positive psychology, workplace engagement, and character strengths to come up with a foolproof methodology you can apply in your workplace today.
