In this white paper we explore how you can effectively understand the communications ‘personality’ of the people you interact with, identify the dynamics at play in individual stakeholder relationships and plan your own communication style accordingly to ultimately engage and get buy-in from stakeholders.Download Now

On the face of it, having a conversation is straightforward – we’re having them all the time. But are we having the right conversations, and are we getting the most out of them? To answer those questions, we need to understand what’s going on when we have a conversation. This is something we regularly explore with our clients, and it recently led us to Judith E. Glaser’s work and her book, Conversational Intelligence.Download Now
