Inferior communication skills and strategic blindness translate to a lack of practicality, progress, and competitive edge.

How to successfully speak UP to higher-ups will address the inner and outer game of communicating and relating with, or “speaking assertively” to everyone. Attendees will walk away feeling more confident and capable of speaking up about issues and ideas that will transform their success into one that far exceeds just barely meeting standards.

Why you should Attend: Successfully speaking up to higher ups contribute significantly to business success, as they: help you build better relationships. deliver lasting, quality solutions-rather than poor short-term solutions that do not satisfy the needs of either party, help you avoid future problems and conflicts.

When we engage in effective speaking, two things are illuminated: the issues and requests that we state openly; and our real needs, which are rarely verbalized. If you establish a reasonable guess about what the other person’s needs are, you can predict, with remarkable certainty, what will transpire in any interaction.

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • Neutralize potential resistance or discomfort related to speaking up
  • How to learn the higher-ups communication style
  • Enhance the quality of content shared during, and responsiveness of communication
  • Improve relations between management and subordinates
Who Will Benefit:
  • All individuals and professionals who desire to improve their personal and professional success
