Description: Successful delivery of any project requires you to communicate with, manage and influence people at all levels, both inside and outside your organization. Yet they all speak different “languages”. And worse yet there isn’t a roadmap, translation guide or hint sheet to tell you how to relate to each so that you can be successful.
This presentation will discuss how to identify your target audience, determine the communication styles and methods that works best for them and how to adapt your message, motivations methods and your style for optimum success. We will also discuss how to build a relationship with your sponsor and leverage your influence with them to set your project up for success.
