Imagine what it would be like to be as effective and successful with your interpersonal communication as you are with your technology! ? In this talk, CNSV member Steven Cerri will discuss what would it be like to communicate effectively instead of:

â?¢? ? Having difficulty explaining your technology or your ideas to your customers and colleagues

â?¢? ? Being unable to ask for more business or an increase in salary or an extension to a contract

? ? Missing contract opportunities or great job opportunities because you don’t know how best to approach a subject

? ? Being unable to control your meetings or contribute effectively to the meetings you attend

? Steven will also cover the following topics:

â?¢? ? What to focus on when you want to influence a client or colleague

â?¢? ? How do you know when a client is ready to hear and understand what you want to say?

â?¢? ? Two models you can use to understand how people communicate

â?¢? ? Why human communication can be predictable and controlled

â?¢? ? Two of the major pitfalls engineers and technical professionals commit in trying to influence those around them

â?¢? ? What is effective communication?

? As an added bonus, there will be a drawing at the end of Steven’s talk for one hour of free coaching on any topic.
