An organization’s performance can be improved through project management. The role of project management is to lead a team to achieve project goals within the given limitations/restrictions.
In addition to task completion and budget control, project management is also integral to employee retention and the efficiency and effectiveness of the company. As these positions become increasingly in demand, training and coaching become equally essential. But where exactly should the training and coaching be focused?
Through speech coaching and leadership training!
In project management, communication is of utmost importance. Project managers primarily use communication to coordinate efforts by gathering and distributing information. Through active and engaging communication, you can channel the talents of your project team members, build their confidence, boost their morale, and achieve better results. Additional benefits include faster completion times, improved organizational communication, and better negotiation skills.
A communication training program will help you gain confidence, overcome a stutter, accent reduction/modification, become a better speaker, manage anxiety when you talk, practice talking in a safe environment, and receive tailored feedback. You can also improve your professional communication skills with speech coaching if English is not your first language! In training, you will learn the tools and tricks to deliver your message effectively and persuasively.
Project managers need leadership skills. Among these skills are communication skills (see the trend?), listening, influencing, negotiating, and motivating. All of these activities contribute to project management’s goal of building teams. In order to ensure the success of a project, leadership is essential.
A variety of leadership styles exist. The leadership style of many project managers varies depending on the specific goals they are trying to achieve. A project manager’s leadership skills are shaped by their personality, experience, and training.
And did you know that 80% of a leaders workday is spent communicating?
In fact, according to the Quantum Leadership Group, poor communication trickles down through organizations and can cost large companies up to a whopping $9.3 billion. With that kind of impact on the bottom line, skillful leadership communication makes sense (and cents!).
