I Hear You! Exploring Empowered Communication

PMI says that 90% of a project manager’s time is spent communicating. Every project manager has a multitude of stakeholders with which to develop and maintain relationships on their projects. Effective communication is essential to robust, healthy, and dependable stakeholder relationships. This is especially important when projects encounter challenges.

Join this Interactive Workshop where the key takeaways will include:

  • Learn effective listening techniques to heighten your ability to tap into both what is being said and NOT being said
  • Learn the skill of using powerful questions to bring out the most in conversation
  • Through interactions with others, learn other communication skills that will set you up for strong relationships with your stakeholders and, in particular, with your team members and strategic partners.
  • Leave with a list of references for continued learning
