Is your communication in the workplace good enough when dealing with the boss?

Are you uncomfortable or dread meeting with your boss – especially when you have to deliver bad news?  Well, there are ways to prepare for that meeting, anticipate your higher-up’s expectations, and establish priorities from a more positive, can-do perspective.
On Target Talent’s Communicating UpTM course for business managers and team leaders can help you develop the skills and insight necessary to make “reporting up the chain of command” more effective, more comfortable and more productive for everyone involved.

Presentation skills training will help you to understand and impress those you report to

No matter how experienced a manager you already are, our behavior-modeling approach will enhance your ability to make working with your seniors more productive, purposeful and effective. You will learn how to:

Appeal to your manager’s point of view

  • Prepare fact-based, well-thought-out and clearly stated objectives for the meeting
  • Anticipate any reservations your manager may have about your message
  • Cooperatively set well-defined, beneficial and recognizable goals
  • Ensure that decisions made during your meeting are mutually understood

You can tailor our leadership training course to work within your budget and timeframe
