ACHIEVING PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS:
Getting Your Recommendations Approved


"The 'Achieving Personal and Professional Success' webinar series has helped us as an office reflect on and improve the way we communicate ideas to our project stakeholders. We've truly enjoyed the learning experience and look forward to future professional development webinars with MidwestGeo."
- Mark Pfeiffer, Staff Engineer, Geosyntec Consultants

How do you create compelling recommendations
that your stakeholders support and approve?

While you may have a seat at the decision making table, your recommendations may get "lost in translation." Many times this occurs because the recommendation is created and delivered in a manner that, while it makes sense to you, it lacks a compelling story from the decision maker's perspective. Join Mike Figliuolo for a presentation on these critical communication and leadership skills. During the webinar, you will learn a new thought process and method that helps you cut through the clutter to get your stakeholder to take notice of your idea. You will see how to deliver clear and compelling recommendations that will be readily implemented in your organization. This skill will help improve your organization and enhance your chances for career advancement. This method is based on Mike's book The Elegant Pitch: Create a Compelling Recommendation, Build Broad Support, and Get it Approved (www.elegantpitch.com).

Key Webinar Elements:

  • Craft a compelling "core idea" that resonates with key stakeholders
  • Build a solid, logical "architecture" to support your ideas
  • Draft a clear and effective story that articulates your recommendation and its rationale
  • Syndicate your story with a broad set of key stakeholders
  • Choose and perform the "right" set of analyses required to convince your business partners
  • Deliver your recommendation clearly and succinctly

Key Webinar Benefits:

  • Be more efficient and effective in the analysis you conduct
  • Clearly identify stakeholder needs and wants
  • Craft stories and recommendations that stakeholders support and approve
