The importance of Increasing the strength of your business relationships is an idea that’s easy to recognize but difficult to practice. Global consultant and relationship expert Morag Barrett helps you bridge the gap between knowing and doing in this course.
You’ll begin by gaining an understanding of high-performing teams. What is it that separates some individuals from the rest in their ability to get the most from others and themselves? Barrett gives you the background you need to form a solid foundation.
The second class helps you understand the role that collaboration plays in your career path. You’ll see the shift between goals that are accomplished with your own effort and those that require strong relationships to successfully complete. The third class puts the focus on you. Barrett will help you gain perspective on why people do or don’t want to work with you, including four questions you need to consider.
The course continues with a look at vertical vs. horizontal relationships. This helps guide you into the important process of mapping your goals and discovering the relationships (including the not-so-obvious ones) that will turn failure into success. You’ll also spend time learning about the differences between a “Me First” and a “We First” mindset and how to tell which one is in your current organization.
The course concludes with a trio of lessons including a detailed look at the Relationship Ecosystem. Are your current relationship partners Allies or Rivals?
