Effectively Communicating and Influencing Leaders and Key Stakeholders – 4 PDUs

August 27 EDT @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm




As a project or program manager, it is critical that you possess the skills and experience to effectively communicate and negotiate with sponsors, stakeholders, and other leaders across the organization.  They depend on accurate and timely decision support information from you to make both strategic and tactical decisions. Understanding the right amount of information to share,  how,  and how often to share is important.  You have a plethora of information at your fingertips.  How do you know what is the right amount and type of information to convey?  How do you communicate issues, and develop and offer alternate plans?  How do you effectively negotiate for more resources and/or funding?  Changes in dates?  How do you know when to escalate information and to whom? Most critical, how do you gain their trust – in you and the information that you are providing?

This exciting experiential workshop will provide you with proven leadership tools and techniques for effectively influencing sponsors, stakeholders and other leaders.  Our highly experienced PMLG instructor will take you through real world scenarios where you will gain the confidence to apply techniques for:

  • Gaining the trust of your sponsors, stakeholders, and leadership team
  • Identifying and assessing stakeholders and developing communication strategies specific to each
  • Understanding the needs and motivations of your audience
  • Filtering information for delivering the most relevant data and supporting rapid decision making
  • Communicating key information clearly and concisely
  • Communicating risks and impacts of risk events
  • Developing and communicating alternate plans and strategies
  • Determining when and how to escalate
  • Planning and conducting effective negotiations with sponsors, stakeholders, and leaders
  • Communicating and managing issues
  • Providing accurate and meaningful executive summaries and status updates
  • Understanding the work styles of each sponsor, stakeholder, and leader and tailoring communication appropriately

This is an experiential-based workshop in which you will have the opportunity to apply many of these techniques to realistic scenarios.  You will leave the workshop with the confidence, skills,  and techniques to immediately begin applying what you learned to your own initiatives.
