Course Details

Create, strengthen and manage relationships of all types.
When time is tight and resources are scarce, it can be easy to forget that the people you manage and work with are exactly that: people. Being able to relate isn’t about being fake or emotional, it’s about building bonds with others to improve the way you work together, while remaining professional. Even if you don’t consider yourself a ‘people person’, you can develop the techniques to help you engage with authenticity and aplomb. This module is a great starting point.

Learning Journey

  • Workout #1: Your impact on others

    We can improve our impact on others by understanding the motivations that drive people to behave in different ways.
    • The Workout:
      You have behaved in exactly the same way with two different people. One of them sees you as honest, the other as gullible (or, maybe, determined and ruthless; rigorous and inflexible). Why does this happen? And, more significantly, what can you do about it?
      “Things are not as they are but as we are,” observed Anais Nin. We each have different ways of looking at the world and these determine how we perceive events and people. If we understand the way someone else looks at things (and us), we can adapt the way we behave to have greater impact. Of course we don’t have to, but it’s nice to have the choice.
      This Workout takes a simple model and helps us see how we can have the effect that we want, by understanding which combination of three motivational drivers someone is using to interpret the world around them.
       
    • At the end of this Workout you will have:
      • Understood the different motivational drivers we have and how they affect the way we interpret other people’s behavior.
      • Appreciated the impact each motivational driver tends to have on the others.
      • Knowledge of what your motivational driver is likely to be.
      • Recognized your strengths and the likely impact that your way of looking at the world has on the different types of people around you.
      • Decided what practical action you can take to increase your impact on others.

  • Workout #2: Trust me

    By doing the right thing in the right way you’ll soon find that people are turning to you as their trusted advisor.
     
    • The Workout
      Why do we choose one child-minder over another? Or one consultancy to manage our global restructuring over another? Or a particular colleague to take on a key project over another?
      Because we trust them to manage this delicate task. Yes, price, reputation and ability to add value all come into the picture – but research shows that whether we are conscious of it or not, trust is the most important factor.
      So how can we build trust with our colleagues and clients, so that they see us as more than just a subject specific expert – and instead a trusted advisor they can turn to for help on almost any issue?
       
    • At the end of this Workout you will have:
      • Considered the four levels of trust and whom you’d like to reach a ‘trusted advisor’ status with.
      • Found out how you score on sensible (practical) and sensitive (emotional) trust.
      • Discussed practical ways to build sensible trust.
      • Explored ways to become more socially intelligent and deepen your level of intimacy, which leads to greater sensitive trust.
      • Debated how to build trust with those who are needy, fearful or very independent
