501 Get Them to Yes: Tools and Tactics to Get What You Need From Stakeholders

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Wednesday, February 14

It's a common scenario: You receive an urgent request from senior management to create a learning solution for a performance issue. The deadline is short, the details are limited, and the stakeholders aren't in agreement about the root cause of the problem. Working remotely has made employee access and collaboration even more important—and reaching consensus and streamlining processes a bit more challenging.

In this session you will learn simple strategies and tools to address the challenges of unclear communication, unrealistic timelines, and confusing expectations. Learn how to:

  • Use free tools like Google Forms and Excel at the onset of your projects to help stakeholders brainstorm and make decisions more effectively and efficiently
  • Leverage data from brainstorming to gain buy-in for your learning and design recommendations
  • Facilitate productive strategy meetings that end with clear decisions, defined actions, realistic deadlines, and greater buy-in from key stakeholders

Leave this session ready to implement these strategies and leverage these tools to help you gain the critical information you need while demonstrating to your managers your expertise as a strategic project manager.
