Based upon interviews, focus groups, pilot program feedback, and data from our change management simulation, the highly customized Influence and Collaboration Workshop focused on increasing impact, expanding choices, and decreasing stress by helping people to:
Speak their truth with relevance
Move work forward in a meaningful way
Build trust and confidence in key relationships
Designed with the premise that we all have thousands of opportunities to communicate each day and that each interaction rolls up to a master narrative of who we are, how credible we are, and how much integrity we have, the communication skills training workshop had five key learning areas reinforced with role-plays, practice, case studies, videos, coaching, feedback, and online job aids:
- Ensure Goal Clarity from the Beginning
Why we communicate matters. Every interaction is a moment of truth for us, our audience, our work, and our organization. Get curious about the “why” if you want to drive clarity in the what and how of your communication.
There is often a wide gap between the intent of our communication and the actual impact. How might getting clear on your goal improve the quality of your communication, influence, and collaboration?
- Unlock Commitment of Key Stakeholders
Unlocking commitment is about ensuring that your audience is ready and that they care.
Whether you’re preparing the biggest presentation of your life, sending a routine email, facilitating a meeting, debating a topic, or giving feedback, you must engage your audience or risk a ‘failure to communicate.’
Multiple monologues, don’t make a dialogue. Connect your why to theirs. Collaboration over shared interests creates shared ownership.
How can connecting your goal with compassion for your audience help you be more effective when communicating, influencing, and collaborating?
- Have Impactful Ideas in the Eyes of Your Stakeholders
To communicate for impact, we have to tell a story that is compelling to our audience. If everything is important, nothing is. Prioritize the what, so what, and now what.
Empowering communicators create concise, understandable, and logical narratives that create the space for collaboration, shared ownership, and value for everyone involved.
How impactful are your ideas?
- Make It Easy to Take Decisive Action
Even in overly political work environments, crafting your communication to create the conditions for “yes” should be personal, relevant, and actionable for your audience.
Hope is not a strategy, luck is not a tactic, and great doesn’t happen by accident, it happens by design. So, when putting your communication together, the details always matter. Who, where, when, and how we deliver our communication can make the difference in our audience engaging with us or not.
Pay attention to the details.
Do your communications make it easy for people to say yes?
- Ensure Execution Excellence
When we communicate well, we have credibility and the ability to inspire, engage, and empower everyone around us — when we don’t, we risk losing the trust and confidence of those who we must work with and influence.
Are you consistently following communication best practices?
