Your success at your company – your ability to get things done efficiently and effectively – is dependent upon your ability to manage your key relationships within the organization. Those relationships take many forms. They include your relationships with:
Other team members
People in other departments and at other locations
We call these relationships customer-supplier relationships. One of the most significant issues at any company is the fact that many customer-supplier relationships are managed poorly. When those relationships are managed poorly, problems can arise – problems that many of us just assume are part of the normal workday. They include:
Critical steps or actions that “fall through the cracks”
Wasting time following up on communications that are not returned
Completing tasks that are unnecessary, incorrect or incomplete because of unclear direction, partial information, or a general lack of trust concerning the direction or information received
General frustration and unhappiness with the job
The good news is that these problems can be “fixed” through effective communication and a mutual understanding of what everyone needs to get the job done. Before you can ever hope to improve your customer-supplier relationships, you must identify your customers and suppliers and determine the level, quality and timeliness of the support you need to both receive and provide. Only after you have accomplished this will you be able to build and strengthen those relationships.
This workshop will help you change the way you currently think about the people you support and the people who support you. It will also provide you with the skills and direction to manage those relationships proactively on a daily basis.
