Successful change implementations need the finesse of the trusted leader to navigate the path of least resistance. No matter how complex the change and how diverse the stakeholder groups, the real key to successful change is building a trustful relationship between all involved. Knowing how to develop this trust needs the leader to understand what it looks, feels and demonstrates to all involved.

There is a proven interplay between the science of trust and the artistry of demonstrating it. Many individuals see it as the external representation anchored in a pool of emotional responses. Extensive research has shown that trust is beyond the intangible but is a physical and chemical activity that can be brought to the fore with the right nurturing and triggers. This is a skill all project and change leaders need to understand and learn to use as they motivate acceptance and reinforcement of their change challenges.

This seminar addresses the art and science of trusted change leadership. The benefits of understanding the key trigger points for trust and how these build to smooth the way ahead for projects and strategic alignment within the current workplace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the science of trust
  • Appreciate the challenges of change events
  • Get to know the six key drivers for trust
  • Understand the relationship of each trust driver to change
  • The importance of trust in delivering successful project and change
  • The role of the leader in building and maintaining trust

One of the most critical skills for any Project or Change leader to master is his or her ability to influence key stakeholders and ensure effective communication throughout the life of a project.  Success is based upon productive, united relationships amongst all stakeholders. A projects lucrative deliverable is therefore based on the strength of collaborating relationships and the effectiveness of the communication.

 

Some of the distinctions of effective presentation delivery can be segmented into three core competencies; the words we utilize, the tonality of our voice and our bodies language.  7% of the meaning of our communication is the words we use, 38% the tone of our voices and 55% our bodies language.  To wield the greatest degree of influence an effective leader will deliver their presentation with an understanding of how to influence different learning styles and use their voice tone and bodies as instruments to achieve the results they desire.

 

This seminar addresses the need to expand the project and change leader’s capabilities to influence, increase people intelligence and create an effective approach that grows competency and mastery in presentation delivery.

 

Learning Objectives:

 

·        Understanding the three core competencies of communication

·        Increase leadership effectiveness through learning powerful presentation skills

·        How to deliver your presentation to different learning styles

·        The importance of tonal patterns and when to use them

·        The science of eye patterns and their connection to learning styles

·        How to use the three representational systems to create charismatic presentations

·        How to organize your presentation into the 4-mat system to appeal to the thinking strategies of an entire audience

 

This webinar is brought to you by Puget Sound PMI Chapter, and offered by PRAXIS Consulting, Inc.

Friday Tracks: Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Transformational Project Leadership (TPL)

Saturday Tracks:  Agile, Microsoft Project/Project Online, Transformational Project Leadership (TPL)

How TPL differs from Traditional Project and Change Management – The 21st century business world demands an end-to-end solution in order to achieve sustainability…projects can no longer afford to live in silos where Strategy passes the baton to Delivery which passes the baton to Change.   It demands instead one group of experts from end-to-end, where Delivery and Change work together as a team in all three phases of the project, lending their knowledge, experience, networks, and advice to each other every step of the way.  Leadership shifts or may shift as the project moves out of Delivery into Change, but the team is intact and functioning until Change is accomplished.

Don’t forget the Hyatt has a special event discount…make sure you reserve your room before March 18th!
