Is Your Message Getting Through?

Presentation Description:

Ever feel like your message isn’t getting through?  Whether it’s needs we’re prioritizing, risks we’re escalating, stakeholders we’re identifying, or ideas we’re surfacing, if we’re not being heard as BA’s, we can’t possibly be effective within our organizations. Even if our communication makes it through most of the time, we all know that one missed communication can set us back with a long road to recovery.  Communication is critical to our success, yet many of us don’t invest enough time into communicating effectively or understanding some simple secrets of effective communication.   What if there was an easy-to-apply, easy-to-remember way to increase the effectiveness of every single communication in your life?  Would you try it?    Since communication is the leading cause of organizational pain, and since this tool has been proven to improve communications over and over, why not invest just a little time and walk away with a highly effective way to make your communications – and your workdays – even better. By attending this course, participants will gain a simple tool to help them:   • Identify the objective of a communication before initiating it • Prepare for the success of the sender and the receiver of a communication before engaging • Anticipate and mange obstacles that might derail the communication
