Our interactions with others don’t always produce the outcomes we expect or need. In some circumstances, we might be tempted to blame the other party for failing to listen or understand, or being intransigent - clearly, it is they who are at fault.
But what if it is not their fault? What if the way we present our ideas, needs or arguments simply doesn’t fit with their view of the world, or meet their needs for clarity? What if they don’t like the forcefulness with which we make our arguments? What if they perceive a self-interest that glosses over their requirements, affecting their trust?
This programme looks at the behaviours, of which we might not be aware, that can impact negatively on the relationships we seek to build with others, including our ‘life positions’, ‘scripted roles’ and ‘ego states’. It explores the importance of rapport in building trust, the role of assertiveness in handling conflict, and the strategies we might employ for developing influence, all of which are important in producing positive relationships with others.
To provide participants with an opportunity to reflect on elements of their emotional intelligence, specifically their awareness of others and relationship management to help build confidence, competence and resilience in their job roles.
This workshop dovetails with the one-day Managing Yourself workshop that looks at other elements of emotional intelligence related to self-awareness and self-management.
