“What will you learn from this Programme?”

When interacting with people with authority over us – reporting manager, functional heads, stakeholders and clients – we have to manage difficult conversations. They fall into the four topics of – Refusing, Requesting, Influencing or Pushing Back. How do we assertively complete these aspects while building relationships and the trust quotient?

You are the custodian of your job role and are responsible to ensure nothing impacts it negatively. Therefore, it is important to be able to draw red lines and let people know that you take the job you have been entrusted with, very seriously. However, at no time should your leadership feel you are taking advantage of the situation or just disinterested in your job.

This Learning Shot will help you be heard and felt by your seniors and grow your Executive Presence at the same time. Become visible, not invisible.
