'Communication Styles, Workplace Values, Motivators and Behaviors' - Interactive Roundtables
Before the event, forum attendees will complete the online Insights Talent Assessment. This tool will yield a personalized report that will be used in this session. The assessment and exercises will help you learn more about your own communication styles and workplace values, motivators and behaviors. During this session, multiple experiences will demonstrate application for becoming self and other aware, and how using this skill positively impacts workplace performance. When project managers learn how to read others they are better equipped to connect with project resources and adapt their styles and behaviors for risk and issue mitigation within unique organizational cultures.

"Diversity: Individual Styles to Team Collaboration"
Description: Project teams and organizations are comprised of unique resources. Being aware of one's natural and adapted styles means better communication, improved leadership and enhanced teamwork. In today's organization, most projects are cross-functional in nature. The result is improved collaboration and organizational profitability because resources are skilled in the technical aspects (science) of project work and also in the art of project management.
Enhance your personal and professional value and accelerate your team's performance by understanding motivational differences among individuals you work with. Start by taking a research-based online assessment which identifies your communication style, workplace motivators, values and behaviors. A personalized Insights Talent Report will be sent to you prior to the Forum, so that results can be used in interactive exercises and serve as a foundation for your reflection and learning throughout the event.
You'll learn how to use your areas of strength to adapt to colleagues with other styles. By becoming self and other aware, you'll help to foster a climate of communication and teamwork among your project teams and within the organization.

Understanding and developing these skills leads to more successful project delivery and enhanced organizational success.

Once you are registered and confirmed, you'll receive instructions (approximately 6-8 days before the event) for completing the online assessment.

Instructional seminars will explain key theories and principles that are the foundation for effective leadership behaviors.
