Jesse CombsPowerful Non-Defensive Communication™ (PNDC): Cutting Edge Skills for Project Managers

Presenter: Jesse Combs, Founder/Principal Consultant, Clearstream Consulting, LLC and Partner, Institute of PNDC

For many project managers, being caught between multiple stakeholder groups with different expectations and agendas can lead to significant levels of anxiety and confusion. And when our personal defensive mechanisms are triggered in response, physiological changes in the brain occur which make it more difficult to think clearly and respond appropriately, ultimately rendering us less effective at resolving the issues at hand.
In this talk, Powerful Non-Defensive Communication or “PNDC” will be presented as an alternative method of responding to and navigating situations that have, in the past, consistently triggered our defensive reactions. We’ll first review the current “War Model” of communication, where “to be open is to be vulnerable and to be vulnerable is to be weak,” and corresponding physiology of defensiveness as well as the dynamics of power struggle. Then we’ll discuss a new way of using tools of communication like questions, statements, and predictions to shift away from outdated and obsolete methods of communicating, using real-world project management examples.

Sharon125Design Input and Problem Solving Solutions

We start 2017 with a lively discussion led by Sharon Grundy about how to look at design and problem solving from all angles. One of the interesting challenges Project Managers face is getting too much input from some people and not enough from others. Sharon will guide us through a discussion of how to bring in all perspectives to ensure the best design or solution to a problem.
