After a career of working with smart folks, scientists and experts, I've developed the workshop I wish I'd had much earlier--and it works well whether you're a newbie communicator or a seasoned pro. Be an Expert on Working with Experts returns on Tuesday, June 19, 2012, here in Washington, DC. Register for this unusual professional development opportunity and learn about:
- Your experts' default communications style and why you're asking them to do the exact opposite of what they've learned, as well as how to bridge the gap;
- Handling introverts, extroverts and egos, and how each one responds differently to your coaching;
- Why they don't need to "dumb down" their expertise, and how to handle this and other common objections they raise to communicating with non-technical audiences;
- Handling hands-on feedback to smart people, pushback and Q&A when you're training experts. Find out what they don't know--but won't tell you--and how to fix that.
