How to Successfully Communicate & Collaborate with Life Science Project Teams

16 Jun 2022
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Virtual using Zoom


Join the PMINJ Life Sciences group for an engaging evening focused on YOUR development.

According to PMI, a Project Manager should spend 90% of their time communicating. When it comes to communication, we all suffer from what psychologists call illusory superiority i.e. we all think we are better at it than we actually are.  In a survey of more than 1,400 corporate executives, employees and educators, 86% blamed workplace failures on ineffective communication or collaboration.   Additionally, more than 70% thought that lack of candor affected their company's ability to perform at its best.  This research was done before Covid and implementation of virtual / hybrid working models that further affect communication. 

Understanding (our teams, ourselves, and our colleagues) and establishing trust are at the heart of effective communication and collaboration.  Join us, as Dr. Bobbi Jo Curtis and Kim Azzinaro provide pragmatic tools and tips for communicating and collaborating specifically for the Life Sciences.
