Developing Interpersonal Skills

Duration: 1 Day 

This Workshop looks at how to proactively manage stakeholders and develop a service approach to adding value in your relationships. 

When these expectations are not managed then conflict is likely to occur and no matter how we communicate we create a mismatch between our goals and objectives and those of our stakeholders. The key is to proactively manage our communications, building engagement. Building clear communications can improve those relationships and enhance the reputation of your department.
