Program Description: 

Communication is more than a means to an end. It's one of your most important leadership tools. If you want to learn how to:

1. Get your change sponsor to stand up and lead the change;
2. Get greater accountability of your project team members;
3. Build more productive working relationships;
4. Overcome the cultural norms, dysfunction and resistance;

then you'll want to attend this session. You will come away with specific communication tools (not usually taught to Project Managers) to overcome barriers, build greater participation and engagement from your team. Be prepared for a lively and engaging session!
