Why have professionals in HR, IT, and even security been outsourced to low-cost providers? They became commodities when leaders and other financial decision-makers perceived that their work didn’t add value in a way that exceeded their costs.
The same is happening to professional communicators all over the world, and it's time to take action now to avoid falling into the commodity trap in your own career.
In this fast-paced webinar session, leadership and career coach Darcy Eikenberg will dig deep into why this trend is exploding, and you'll learn specific actions you can take in your organization now to avoid becoming a commodity—or to turn perceptions around if you’re already there.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why leaders overlook or undervalue communication contributions—and how to help them see clearly.
- How to think and speak about your work differently—so you can get out of the commodity trap.
- Three key strategies you can use to provide real business value that gets noticed and doesn’t get lost in all the noise of day-to-day work.
