Impactful Communication

Experts are expected to have a wealth of responsibilities today. It is important that they are able to intelligibly communicate their expertise in the context of "knowledge-management processes", and to persuade and support others to accept behavioural change or to adopt new procedures. This requires that Experts, like Line Managers, develop the ability to communicate their expertise effectively in an impactful, results-oriented, and engaging manner with teams and with project stakeholders, while handling uncertainties, fears, or resistance with a coaching approach.

Your Organization will benefit from this Program if:

  • You want your Experts to effectively lead cross-functional project teams without a formal reporting relationship
  • You need your Experts to transfer their knowledge to others and improve cross-functional collaboration
  • You want your Experts to drive solution-finding in teams
  • You want your Experts to build skills to hold impactful and influential conversations or presentations
  • You want to give your Experts the tools to be effective team-players in a changing environment
  • You want to create value for the Organization through peer-to-peer coaching
