Topic: Arthur Shelley: Building trust, credibility and relationships with your senior decision makers

Knowledge initiatives seem to be constantly challenged to get sufficient mind space of the senior decision-makers.  This is required to secure ongoing support for knowledge based projects and to build sustainable capability to cope with complex changes, or even leverage change positively (is there any other sort of project?).  Behaviour, trust and relationships are your most powerful mechanism of influence, but these are very difficult to generate, take a long time and are easily eroded in organisations suffering from constant restructuring and politics. 

We will engage in interactive conversations and games that enable to you to understand others perspectives and engage with them in more constructive dialogue that leads to better performance outcomes (for you, your teams and the organisation as a whole).  Having experienced these activities, you will be able to take them back into your own workplace (and personal life) and immediately apply them – the more often, the more benefits you will generate.
