Industry Professional Development Workshop: Building Relationships That Take You to the Next Level

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 — 1:00PM - 5:00PM


Organizations are comprised of two interdependent systems, the technical system and the social system. And, nowhere is this is more evident than in the tech sector.

Your exceptional technical skills got you in the door, but your social skills will help you climb the ladder. Research tells us you won’t be successful without both skill sets and one of the most important is relationship-building.

Building influential relationships that take us to the next level is anything but straight-forward. This dynamic process actually requires intentionality, focus and planning. And in today’s competitive environments, how we are viewed by our colleagues many times, can make or break us. And, if we believe our behavior teaches others how to treat us, then we want to ensure that we’re sending the right messages.

In this workshop, we will explore some of the key relationship-building strategies that help us build sustainable relationships that take us to the next level.

And then, we will take it a step further by learning some simple tools and skills that you can leverage across these critical relationships, that will help to ensure you achieve your desired results.

Who Should Attend

Technical people who are individual contributors, team leaders and managers who are interested in understanding how they can build influential relationships to help advance their careers.
