While most project-based work leaders can articulate the importance of training their teams in technical project management processes, the importance of having people with strong communication skills is often undervalued. The reality is that in an increasingly complex business environment with virtual offices, cross-departmental teams and global locations, communicating up, down and across the organization is a key component to project success.
In this webinar, Carl Sergeant, TwentyEighty Strategy Execution Senior Instructor, emphasizes that when it comes to the purpose of communicating project goals, it’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it.
Effective communication is about collaboration. Only when we understand the needs of our audience can we properly communicate the value of what we’re saying in order to inspire engagement and initiate action.
Sergeant talks about getting out of our comfort zones in order to learn about each other and understand the human and emotional element of communicating. By pushing these boundaries, we can tap into the motivations and needs of all stakeholders in order to drive improved project performance.
This webinar also discusses:
- The cost value of communication skills and their effect on project success or failure
- A simple formula for communications success
- How to make an impact right away through tactical considerations and action steps
