THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIP: 7 KEYS TO BETTER RELATIONSHIPS AND GREATER TEAMWORK

 
In today's tough business environment, it takes more than product knowledge, technical competency, or social media contacts to be successful. Professional knowledge and organizational contacts can become obsolete with the next change in technology or shift in organizational structure. Success in today's world requires an extraordinary amount of people skills. You've got to know how to start and build relationships... on and off the job. And you've got to know how to work with others... so teamwork becomes a workplace reality rather than a hollow buzzword. Unfortunately, many people receive little or no training in how to make relationships work. They're given a job and told what to do, but they may be left on their own to figure out how to do their work with others. In this program, you will sharpen the tools you need to communicate more effectively, build relationships more easily, and get the cooperation of others more quickly. You will learn how to gain respect, present your ideas, minimize opposition, and resolve conflicts. You will learn how to persuade others so you get the response you want ... from your coworkers, your customers, and even your family members. Dr. Alan Zimmerman's program is powerful and practical. It is fun and upbeat. And instead of pointing fingers, it points the way to positive, productive relationships that truly pay off. Expect to learn, to be engaged, and to make a difference when you return to your work or home.
