This event will be beneficial to:

  • Project Managers negotiating scope/fee and contractual requirements with clients with strong opinions on what you should be doing, what your fee should be, and are unwilling to deviate from their standard agreement terms and conditions.
  • Engineers, planners, and others responding to difficult comments on your deliverables from agencies and other consultants during comment resolution meetings.
  • Those working under the supervision of a manager with a “my way or the highway” philosophy.

Research conducted by Mike Poskey at ZERORISK HR indicates that one of five emotional intelligence competencies that successful leaders employ is called “social skills and political correctness.” This competency is important in all areas of life.

The ability to communicate with diplomacy and tact improves your leadership skills by helping you manage change, negotiate and compromise, resolve conflicts, gain consensus and collaboration, and create a cohesive team.

This session gives participants the opportunity to practice dealing with trying situations in a confident and diplomatic way. They will learn to speak honestly and tactfully, give and receive constructive feedback, and use mediation skills to help others find common ground when holding opposing viewpoints.

Completion of this will empower participants to:

• Respond to difficult situations in a confident, diplomatic, and tactful way

• Give and receive feedback without eliciting negative emotions

• Apply mediation techniques to find common ground among opposing viewpoints

Primary Competencies: Communication, Professionalism, Interpersonal Skills

Related Competencies: Conflict Resolution, External Awareness
