Partnering Your Boss At Work (2 days)

In this intensive, two-day workshop participants will learn how to apply key interpersonal and communications skills at work so as to enhance their working relationship with their boss. 

Participants will learn skills for identifying and handling difficult people and situations while maintaining and improving relationships.  They will learn when they cannot change others and need to change their mindset instead.  Participants will also learn a variety of techniques to persuade others in written proposals, formal presentations, and face-to-face conversations. 

Most of us do not do everything we would like to do, and complain that there simply is not enough time.  We all have twenty-four hours in each day, yet we all know of people who are highly productive.  We can learn to accomplish more by harnessing the power of flow, and balance work and family demands.

This workshop is suitable for new managers, supervisors, and developing leaders.
