Relationships: At the end of the day, it’s all about relationships

Effective relationships are the fuel that keep small business alive. What are the strategies that keeps these relationships alive and thriving? It is more than just communication – it’s about shared values, goals and having a clear understanding of accountabilities and expectations.

Managing relationships is about understanding the key relationships and applying these strategies on a needs basis. It’s also about managing the difficult times, negotiating and collaborating to achieve a shared outcome.

Participants will complete an “Opinion Leaders Analysis” for external stakeholders and develop strategies for various stakeholders. Strategies to manage internal relationships will also be developed by participants, including a needs analysis, managing conflict, change and difficult situations.
