In today’s fast-paced, project-based world, there’s no time for missteps or client miscommunication. With that in mind, account managers and team leaders must know how to navigate potentially difficult conversations when discussing budgets, fees, deadlines, project deliverables, success metrics, etc. These skills become particularly important when your firm is one of several agency partners working together on behalf of a common client––and you find yourself operating among multiple parties who may have competing interests.
On February 11, join Gary Duke, Partner & Chief Talent Officer, Wild Blue Yonder, for an illuminating webinar in which you’ll learn how to navigate potentially uncomfortable conversations, while keeping both the client’s and agency’s best interests in mind.
At the end of the webinar, you’ll know how to:
  • Plan for and maintain a productive and positive dialogue
  • Recognize and leverage the five conflict-management modes 
  • Size up the opposing perspective and gain insights into the motives and behaviors behind it
  • Anticipate and proactively address client objections 
  • Navigate generational, gender, cultural and other personal differences
  • Avoid fostering an “Us vs. Them” perspective
Who Should Attend?
Account managers, team technical leads, and anyone who is client-facing and has to navigate potentially difficult client conversations.
