Taming the Human Side of Project Management
Momentum on a high-profile roll-out suddenly decreases. The behavior of an inhibitor jeopardizes everything. Ask yourself: What conversation have I been unable or unwilling to have that if I were able to, might change everything? Conversations are the work of project leaders and the workhorses of an organization. Practicing and championing Strategic Communications companywide enhances employees capacity to serve as agents for success, structuring the basis for high levels of alignment, collaboration and partnership. While no single conversation is guaranteed to change the trajectory of a career, a company a relationship or a lifeany single conversation can. As a participant, you will be introduced to a Strategic Communications skills-based model that drives results and will improve the quality of your projects deliverables.
