Angela has 40 years of experience in organizational communication, including managerial roles ranging from supervisor to vice president in corporations, and as a communication consulting practice leader of Mercer’s LA and SF offices.

Do you feel that you’re always the one to give in when there’s a conflict between you and a peer or boss?

  • Do you worry that your recommendations to management don’t get the focused attention they deserve?
  • Were you thrown into a management role without any training?
  • Have you been struggling with managing a team of communicators? Or just one specific staff member?

If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, you will benefit from the IABC Academy’s offering: "Management Skills for Communicators."

Some managers think they’re automatically good communicators because they know how to write an email and conduct a conversation. We know they’re often mistaken. Communicators who happen to have “manager” in their title and a number of direct reports should not make the same mistake and assume that they’re automatically good managers. Yet, management skills can be learned just as communication skills can. This workshop will help communicators assess their current managerial skill levels, give them guidance on practical tips to become more effective managers, and suggest ways to practice those skills between sessions.



Workshop Objectives

You'll experience a comprehensive training program delivered online and via webinar. By the end of the course, you will have the tools you need to:

  • Develop personal power to increase your influence among peers and senior leaders, including a way to present recommendations to management in a way that makes it more likely that they follow your recommendations.
  • Work through conflicts, using practical tips for negotiation and breaking through a seeming impasse.
  • Better manage your team of communicators—from techniques for more effective delegation to knowing when to coach and when to counsel.
  • Make better decisions, including several techniques for brainstorming.
