About the course
People need to hear what you have to say
Communicating with people from different generations, different backgrounds and levels can be very challenging! As a manager, how often are you faced with difficult situations where the atmosphere at work gets very unpleasant because of personality conflicts and misunderstandings? How do you drive change and boost productivity under these conditions? How do you remain calm when dealing with resisting people? Which tactics do you use to get people’s buy-in and goodwill when they don’t want to listen to you? No matter how compelling the vision or how brilliant the strategy, without leadership communication, there is no execution. The ability to get buy-in, gain trust and inspire loyalty en masse isn't a skill you have to be born with.
