2. Interpersonal Effectiveness and Creating Impact
Using key issues and insights identified in the Program Advancement sessions, participants will build critical communication approaches in a highly interactive session led by internationally recognized communications expert David Agran. The exercise, “Interpersonal Effectiveness: Creating Impact Through Communication and Influence,” works with the CALM model (Connect, Align, Learn, Motivate) to establish and leverage trust across key elements in any business relationship.
Scenario-based, interactive exercises tackle issues that matter to you and your peers. Building on the work you did earlier in the day, small groups will apply communication skills to real-world problems. The combination of communication skills training applied to practical questions, in a fun and focused peer environment, fast-tracks both problem solving and relationship building.
3. Vendor Assessment
Lunch is followed by a spirited exercise aimed at increasing the effectiveness of vendor evaluations. Using a structured but straight-forward template, IANS faculty Mike Rothman will peel back the layers of complexity when evaluating solutions. Vendors in this category will be rated based on industry input and IANS client work.
Four vendors will present their solutions with a short briefing. They leave the room for a facilitated discussion of perceived value, drawbacks, reactions, and suggestions. Participants leave with a practical approach to vendor evaluation and a clear idea of how to get the best from the sales process.
