He will focus on verbal, vocal and visual techniques for generating rapport, projecting self-confidence and conveying credibility when interacting with others: skills that can dramatically increase one's comfort and effectiveness in displaying positive attitudes, balancing the demands of diverse stakeholders, reinforcing an organization’s goals and objectives, speaking clearly and concisely in terms others can easily understand and, most importantly, get positive results.

As a project, program, or portfolio manager, it takes more than technical skills to achieve success. It's becoming increasingly important to focus on the interpersonal skills of project management, such as relationship building and communication, which often makes or breaks project success. Employers have found that they can train sharp people and teach them new technical skills but that it is much more difficult to train individuals with engaged attitudes, empathy and respect for others in ways that make for project management success.
