How do effective project leaders communicate risks differently?

Power Skills

Research shows that up to 84% of stakeholders misinterpret project risks, despite project teams performing robust project risk analysis and assessment, due to ineffective risk communication. These can lead to delayed actions or worse, inaction. Take control over project outcomes by uncovering the massive difference between the risk information shared and what stakeholders interpret. This interactive session will address why it is a problem when stakeholders perceive risks incorrectly, root causes of the same, white swan and black swan events, the communication techniques used by effective project leaders while communicating opportunities and threats, power of infographics in risk communication and simple steps to strategize risk communication. 

Sometimes you may have just a few minutes to discuss risks with strategic executives. Effective risk communication styles can help maximize the impact of your planning efforts, get the right message across and help achieve consistent and desired project outcomes.
