Building Relations & Asserting Influence

Building and maintaining good relations with people is a key skill in any type of role, but the art of building trust, establishing strong relationships and delivering a successful message isn’t just what you say:  How you communicate and present yourself plays a huge part in how effectively your message is shared. Your audience needs to see you as a reliable, confident figure, and immediately connect with you and your message. 

This course has no slides.  No workbooks.  It is a creative and playful course that works with deeper levels of the psyche and human potential.  This very popular course will help you to recognise your dominant and preferred styles of working and help you developed neglected areas of your personality. 

We will draw on group psychodynamics, depth psychotherapy and cutting edge leadership approaches through the day.  The process is for the psychological curious. 

Building Relations and Asserting Influence is an exceptionally popular course within our Professional Development Skills series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
