Communicating successfully in Projects
Learn to convince others and win them over for your ideas
Effective communication is an important factor for project success. But you sometimes find it difficult to convince colleagues, customers and managers of new ideas? A manager doesn’t really listen and moves on before you could get to the point? Improve your communication skills to professionally manage project communication with everyone involved.
In this seminar you will learn the basics of successful project communication. Based on typical project situations, you will learn how to optimally design communication with other stakeholders, communicate ideas and address conflicts. We look specifically at communication patterns and reflect on various ways in which you can better communicate your own ideas and points of view.
By means of many practical communication exercises and theoretical models you reflect your personal communication style. You will receive individual feedback and concrete suggestions from the trainer and the other seminar participants. We advise you in difficult project situations and give you the opportunity to prepare yourself specifically for a difficult discussion. Certified participants receive 16 PDUs or a certificate of further education for IPMA.
