This workshop focuses on leadership strategies and, in particular, improved communication in cross-functional teams. The ability to communicate effectively with many different types of people is a sought-after and highly marketable project management skill. It takes confidence, humility, patience and practice to do this well. Small changes in your interactions can lead to better communication, more understanding and a greater chance your messages will get across with accuracy and the unquestioned purity of intention. You will learn how to recognize each communication style by observing how different people deal with problems and challenges, procedures and constraints, preferred pace and consistence and use of body language, tone and words.
