Programme outline

The mechanics of business transactions, measurement and analysis do not sit in isolation from the complex social and psychological world in which each professional operates. To be influential, we must continue to build our awareness, confidence and emotional intelligence, especially in the context of an increasingly VUCA world.

Beyond qualifications and technical skills, the most important factor in professional success is the ability to understand and work within a vast array of relationships. Doing this effectively increases adds more value to the business and boosts job satisfaction and prospects. Constantly getting it wrong can mean increased stress and lost opportunities. It could even cost you your job!

This session incorporates interaction around a real case study and will also provide invaluable tips on how to understand, and work with, power, politics and psychology in the workplace. It will benefit anyone who wants to increase their influence and make a positive difference.
