About the Program

The ability to write coherent content on demand is a highly-prized skill in Project Management. So, writer’s block can be a real problem, resulting in frustration and wasted time. If only someone would develop a systematic method for getting words onto the page in an organized manner!

Someone has! Dr. Judy Pearson discovered that method when she began the research for her third book: Improve Your Writing with NLP. NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It is a structured method for behavioral change, motivation, and persuasive communication. Dr. Pearson is a certified NLP Trainer and Master Practitioner who has studied, taught and practiced NLP for over two decades. Today she will share the research that went into her book and her unique, NLP-based method for effective writing based the process and psychology of successful writers. With this information, you will blast past writer’s block and become a writing machine!
