Building Successful Work Relationships

Skip to Scheduled Dates

Course Overview

In the interdependent workplace, we rely on each other to get things done. A professional network isn’t something we can take for granted – mapping work relationships can be a complex task and understanding different behavioral styles takes effort - but it pays off! Good working relationships means more than just reducing conflict and misunderstandings. It also means building trust, increasing influence, and benefitting from the knowledge and advice of co-workers and senior managers. This workshop will help you develop relationship building skills so you can communicate who you are, what you need, and why you need it in a way that builds trust, respect, and a professional reputation.

Private classes on this topic are available. We can address your organization’s issues, time constraints, and save you money, too. Contact us to find out how.
