Labor Relations - Building Better Relationships with the Field

Learning Objectives

At the end of this seminar, PMs will be able to:

  1. Identify the common pitfalls of miscommunication and complacency in our organizations.
  2. Work better together as a single team and identify the cost if we do not.
  3. Identify common pitfalls and communication issues with those we lead on and off the job.
  4. Deliver tough news and criticism that doesn’t divide us.
  5. Successfully navigate conflict with anyone.
  6. Identify tips, tricks, tactics, and techniques any great leader must master to become a better leader.
There is almost always some level of division between the field and the office, but there doesn’t have to be. When we can work together as a team, great things can happen. In this program, Nic will walk your project managers through some simple steps and ideas that will improve communication and relationships with their field leaders. It’s natural to try to go our separate ways on and off the job, but when we can all begin to pull on the same end of the rope, performance and productivity increase.

Target Audience: Project Managers with 0 to 2 years of experience, support staff or anyone interested in moving into a project management role or in obtaining fundamental labor relations skills.
