Manage and Develop Business Relationships

The most successful relationships in organisations are those that achieve genuine mutual benefit for all parties. This means that client relationships can no longer be transactional; rather they are built on high levels of trust and mutual understanding.

In this 2 day course, we will explore some of the key aspects of working well with other people towards mutual goals and unpack some of the skills you need to do it well.

Who will the course benefit?
This course explores the challenges and opportunities that working with other professionals brings, helping us all gain the most from our experiences of working collaboratively.

This course will be great for any professional who wishes to grow their collaborative working skills to bring value to their role, specifically those around working with colleagues, managing stakeholders and resources in an effective way.
