This interactive workshop provides turnkey frameworks and methods for communicating and interacting as a leader in ways that enable clarity, performance and engagement. Leaders turn plans into reality by effectively knowing how to convey what they need from others in empowering ways that get everyone onto the team and into aligned action. Different situations call for different forms of interaction – is the objective of the conversation relationship, alignment and agreement, problem solving, or binding action? We also examine the pros and cons of different communication mediums in leadership interactions (as opposed to administrative ones): explosive emails or convincing conversations. Size up your stakeholder, the situation, and the self-interests- then select the right approach. You will move to results quickly with a minimum of misunderstanding. What leader doesn’t want a lot more of that?
