A workshop of influencing partners to build consensus, in an artificial intelligence virtual simulation, with live instructor-led discussions
Develop listening and guiding skills, vital to managing projects
Earning buy-in and approval from multiple parties, often with conflicting interests, is a frequent challenge for all organizations, especially when audiences are under pressure.
Learn to better manage complex, fragile stakeholder relationships within a
risk-free simulation. Group discussions about empathy and influential leadership guide participants' communication.
