How to engage, influence and manage stakeholders - drive results from your project or change programme

Rated by 3 delegates

Overview

How often have you wondered whether you're on the right track with your Senior Stakeholders and whether your messages are getting through when challenged? And, how often do you feel that there is something getting in the way of taking the relationship to the next level?

This two-day course helps you to explore and understand where you stand in terms of your relationships  - and it will help you to benchmark both the value and importance of your ‘service' in that relationship.

Knowing these aspects will then allow you to undertake several pivotal steps that will help deepen and broaden your relationships, and guarantee your point of view is heard more often.

What you'll learn

  • Why you may have more stakeholders than you realise
  • How your stakeholders view your relationship and how this affects your interactions
  • Prioritising stakeholders with competing or conflicting needs
  • How to manage and influence outcomes by setting clear expectations
  • Using a stakeholder management framework that works for your organisation or programme
  • Why asking the right questions and listening effectively will transform your ability to manage stakeholders
  • Practical techniques for listening at 3 levels
  • Why trust matters - how to build a pyramid of trust
  • Building rapport and strengthening relationships 
  • Key influencing techniques including pitfalls to avoid
  • Managing difficult stakeholders by identifying root causes and following a clear conflict framework
  • Confidence and skills to challenge others positively, and handle it well when you are challenged
