Strong communication skills are vital for effective collaboration and working in complex, matrixed environments.

This workshop will explore scenarios routinely faced, such as: providing constructive feedback to a peer, delivering bad news to management, and dealing with poor behavior from a direct report. In this interactive forum, participants will be able to learn tips and become familiar with tools to help frame and deliver difficult communications, role play to pre-determined scenarios, receive real-time feedback and then apply the tools/tips to their own specific scenarios.
