Do you have great ideas in the workplace, but feel your boss is not listening? Do you find it difficult to get people to see your point of view and believe in your offer? Do you feel you often end up with a raw deal?
As young professionals in an international business environment, we have many dynamic ideas and the energy to pursue these. Getting your ideas heard and implemented however is a whole different ball game, and you may struggle with persuading others to back your project or getting exactly what you want.
To zoom in on some of the higher level skills required for such interactions, join us for an events series around Powerful Communication Skills, with this month’s event focusing on Persuasion and Negotiation.
Every month, the Beijing Women’s Network and JingJobs bring together experts from diverse backgrounds to empower young and mid-range professionals to build upon their professional skills and networks. If you are not yet a member of the Beijing Women’s Network on WeChat, please add WeChat ID: samanthajingjobs and ask to be added into the groups.
Why Powerful Communication Skills?
Time after time, workplace communication skills are rated as an important area for self-improvement by women worldwide, as well as by the members of the Beijing Women’s Network.
The concept of “Workplace Communication Skills” is incredibly broad, with different people struggling with different aspects and underlying abilities. Therefore, we have designed an events series around this topic, where we will narrow down our focus to very specific skill sets each time.
What will this event cover?
For the first event of this series, we will focus on two complex situations that require high-level communication skills and strategies:Persuasion
Examples of topics to be covered during the speaker presentations and panel discussions:
- How to understand your audience and target your messaging
- Persuading your superiors versus persuading team members
- Important aspects of influence: personal credibility, structuring your argument, communicating previous success
- Changing mindsets: going from ‘no’ to ‘yes’
- Negotiation techniques for e.g. salary, partnerships, contracts
During the Q&A and Networking sessions, guests can ask any additional questions around the topic of Persuasion and Negotiation.Who is this event for?
