Influencing Organizations and Teams

Have you ever suggested a great idea to your team or boss that fell flat, or failed to understand a colleague’s creative approach or motivation to a particular problem? As women and as individuals, we all have unique preferences and instincts for communicating and processing information, and we respond to ideas and messages in different ways. 

This session will provide you with added skills to listen, understand and communicate more effectively with team members and critical stakeholders based on their unique characteristics so that you can minimize miscommunications and maximize the team’s collective strengths.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn to become aware of your communication and influence preferences and those of others to improve your ability to complete work with your peers and subordinates
  • Debunk the women’s intuition myth about gender and decision making

The information was very applicable to not just leaders, but to anyone who wants to take a step forward in their impact and career.
