Jon Isaacson is wrapping up the first draft of book number three in the Be Intentional series titled, So, You Want To Be A Project Manager? Isaacson is looking for feedback from new project managers; those who have been in the role for a year or less. If you are a new project manager, Isaacson is sending out 10 advance copies of the book. This will be once they are printed. The target publish date is the end of October 2021. Isaacson has created a sign-up portal.
There has already been a swell of positive feedback on social media, so he expects to send some additional advance copies of chapters via PDF to interested parties, as well as a discount code for when the book releases. "If you are a training manager and need some help inspiring as well as challenging your team, I think you will find this book to be of value to your efforts," Isaacson said.
This book is intended for:
- Construction professionals who seek to grow their career opportunities through pursuing the role of project management.
- Project managers who need some guidance to better understand and execute their responsibilities.
- Managers who are looking for some assistance in helping their team members develop in their roles and responsibilities as project managers.
"I write because I love seeing good people, like yourself, understand that the path to achieving your dreams is closer than you think. If you want to grow your career, I am living proof that average people can make it happen. When I say closer than you think, I do not mean to imply that the process will be easy. If one of the benchmarks of your personal and/or professional growth includes project management in the skilled trades (and more specifically property restoration), then I believe you will find this book to be helpful in shortening your DANG learning curve. This book IS NOT a how-to or step-by-step guide for project management, but it does contain many of those foundational principles that I believe will help you in your quest. Whatever your goals are, the key elements that will help you get there are your mindset and habits. While your core values should be constant and should not be compromised, your mindset will need to adapt and your habits will need to evolve. Obviously, this book is influenced by my experiences and perspectives, but I think you will find encouragement and inspiration within these pages," Isaacson said.
