Event Description

Working virtually may become the new normal for many professionals. Managing remote teams is decidedly more complicated when the team members and stakeholders have vastly different communication styles. How do you align these diverse groups of people who work remotely and sustain productive team meetings, project status checks, and feedback sessions?

Join PMI Silicon Valley on July 7th to learn how you can harness your emotional intelligence and successfully communicate with differently thinking people to create a high-performing project team.Logo PMISV UCSCSVX

You'll learn to:

  • Recognize the climate and mood of team members and stakeholders.
  • Listen critically to find common ground to engage diverse team members.
  • Adapt your communications and expectations to engage cooperation.
  • Encourage thoughtful solution-focused collaboration.
  • Provide effective feedback to remote working teams.
