A recent Harvard Business Review article includes survey data that alludes to the discomfort leaders have with communication. The article states that 70 percent of leaders are uncomfortable with simple, social communication with their teams.
Most leaders are aware of their discomfort, but unaware of the gap they have in effectively connecting and communicating with their teams. Here’s a hint: Effective communication does NOT revolve around PowerPoint presentations focused on goals, mission, vision, strategy, and direction. While these “directional discussions” are a crucial part of your leadership role, the best way to share is through courageous conversations and effective storytelling.
Join Scrum Alliance® Certified Agile Leadership Educator Bob Galen as he explores these two key skills for your improved communication as a leader. First, we’ll examine the skill of crucial and candid conversations. What do those look like and how do they help? Next, he’ll explore the art of storytelling. Yes, stories can be one of your most effective communication tools – especially in an Agile context.
Leave this webinar with your head buzzing about how to better communicate and become a storyteller. You’ll realize the difference it can make in your Agile leadership journey.
