Relationships in a Non-Trusting World
First 15-20 minutes is for networking Sandwiches and beverages included
Trust. The basis of sustainable and mutually rewarding relationships, both inside and outside the organization. Relationships with colleagues and departments, clients and customers, and suppliers. Trust is like air – when it is there, nobody notices it, but without it organizations can't function at their best.
The need for trust is universally acknowledged; and the importance of relationships is nowhere more important than Asia. Yet, many relationships lack real trust. They're shallow relationships that fracture at the first sign of stress.
Recent research suggests that people overestimate the strength of their relationships, and often only identify relationship weakness when it is too late. In consequence of this, internal silos continue to hamper collaboration and innovation, while externally opportunities are missed and performance compromised.
This session introduces new tools for evaluating the strength and security of your relationships and outlines skills and strategies that you can deploy to build trust and deliver unexpected value to those you work with. The session will be of value to anyone who needs to sell their ideas or influence others without relying on job title and authority.
Make 2014 the year you focus on the most powerful driver of business success: your relationships.
'If you're looking for an edge and don't want to turn to models that were created 40, 20 or even 10 years ago, this is most certainly for you."
