Project managers, executive stakeholders, program managers, anyone with a PMP credential
How project managers can communicate assertively to keep projects on time and under budget.
Picture this…. you are a project manager, wrapping up the weekly status meeting where you have just finished giving the pertinent details of the project and all tasks that need to be done. The client sits back, smiles and says, “Seems like we are in good shape. You know, I bet if we slipped in this one little thing, it would make this project even better!”
“One little thing?” you think to yourself. This is the third “little thing” this month and you are feeling the panic of major scope creep.
The client is looking at you for an answer. Your emotions are taking over and you are struggling between what you would really like to say and what would be politically correct. It’s a tough situation. You don’t want to be viewed as a pushover by your team or be the naysayer to your client. What do you do?
For those who struggle with the challenge of what to say and how to say it, this webinar will give pointers on how you can communicate diplomatically in most situations. This session will center on the use of stories, anecdotes and metaphors which are powerful tools that will enable you to connect to and influence stakeholders.
