Ally or Adversary?
The 3 Secrets to Cultivating Strategic Relationships

“Difficult to manage relationships sabotage more business than anything else.” – John Kotter, Harvard Business School. 

Cultivate focuses on the ‘how’ of successful business. Successful leaders are able to develop strategic relationships across the organization and industry. Ally relationships that ensure business results are achieved through employee engagement and collaboration. In organizations where toxic behaviors are ignored, inefficiencies abound, productivity and customer satisfaction decline, costs go up. As a result, especially in turbulent times, those who have not spent the time to cultivate winning relationships may find results deteriorate just when outstanding team performance is required.

Participant benefits:

  • Articulate why quality working relationships matter, the business and personal impact
  • Apply the Relationship Ecosystem™ to diagnose the health and quality of your professional relationships
  • Determine the next steps to develop Ally relationships and manage Adversarial relationships
