About the Presentation

The Four Cs of Communication

In this compelling presentation, Carl Pritchard (author of the Project Management Communications Tool Kit) examines the four Cs of effective communication: Control, Cost, Community, and Charisma.  Mr. Pritchard will examine how and when we lose control of the communication experience and list specific steps to take to ensure Project Managers retain control to the degree possible.  Specific topics include:
•    Potential political costs of any communication experience and how Project Managers can marshal them to our advantage will also be examined;
•    The capacity to build communication communities in very short spans of time; and
•    The simplicity of establishing charisma without excessive or effusive.
