Topic: 
The 4 Project Conversations: How to Have More "Right" Conversations

There are only four possible conversations a project manager can have during the course of their daily interactions with stakeholders. Unfortunately, three of those conversations are the wrong conversation - that are unproductive and even damaging to project progress and success.

In this interactive and engaging session participants will explore "The 4 Conversations" model, learn why the three conversations are the wrong conversations to engage in, discuss real conversation case studies, and learn specific communication frameworks to move to the right conversation more quickly. You will learn:

  • "The 4 Conversations Model"
  • Why three are the "wrong" conversation.
  • Why one of the wrong conversations can damage key stakeholder relationships and maybe even their credibility and career.
  • Learn specific communication frameworks and scripting to move to the right conversation more quickly.
