Procurement Professionals Communicate Few Connect
The higher you go, the more important your people skills become. In Procurement Professionals Communicate Few Connect, we reveal how to identify with people in a way that increases your influence with them. As a procurement professional, it’s not enough just to work hard. It’s not enough to do a great job. To be successful, you need to learn to communicate in a way that connects with stakeholders throughout the supply chain. Cultivating relationships is critical to forging lasting bonds and will produce amazing results.
Connecting is a skill and in this session, we masterfully underscore principles and practices to equip you to communicate at a level that runs far deeper than words. Based on the book “Everyone Communicates Few Connect” by New York Time best-selling author Dr. John C. Maxwell, this presentation will teach you to connect by:
•Keeping your communications simple
•Staying authentic in relationships
•Capturing people’s interest
•Finding common ground
Our guest speaker is Kim D. Moore, certified coach, teacher and speaker with the John Maxwell Team (www.johnmaxwellgroup.com/kimdmoore); coaches, speakers, teachers and communicators worldwide mentored by leadership authority Dr. John C. Maxwell.
Only one thing stands between you and success. It isn’t experience; it isn’t talent. If you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect upstream and downstream within the supply chain. And while it may seem like some people are just born with it, the fact is procurement professionals can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful stakeholder connection.
