Managing and Influencing Stakeholders

Course Description

Every organisation will have a variety of stakeholders, internally and externally, that may vary from project to project and role to role. For effective stakeholder relationships to develop and be maintained, it is important that everyone has the knowledge to identify, manage and influence at all stakeholder levels. Whilst many people may have developed these skills organically there are proven methods and techniques that can be taught to ensure the future success of these relationships.

This session has been designed to teach attendees how to use practical and simple tools to build, enhance and maximise internal and external stakeholder relationships to ensure long-term success. This interactive workshop will cover the initial stages of stakeholder relationships, including first impressions and how to develop a rapport, through to over overcome problems that come with decision making, change, and getting results.
