Making Emotional Conversations Unemotional
Presented by Rick A. Morris, PMP, OPM3 (1 PDUs)
Project managers are routinely faced with dilemmas. Dilemmas such as sponsors mandating unreachable dates, teams unable to give reliable estimates, changing priorities and scope, and a myriad of other issues. The reactions to these issues generally range from utter frustration to apathy. The reactions then lead to emotional conversations such as “We can’t possibly do this by then!” or “The Sponsor doesn’t understand!” Rick will teach from his personal experience how to take these emotionally charged situations and turn them into unemotional conversations. This will not be the latest fad or psychology, but a simple, time-tested, experience based method to communicate with the entire project team from stakeholders to team members. Rick will share techniques on how to deal with mandated dates to the extremely tense post negotiation of a project gone very wrong. The techniques will be applicable for internal project managers to consultants, and everywhere in between. How to turn emotional conversations into unemotional conversations has been what Rick feels as his personal key to his success.
