Ally or Adversary? The Three Secrets to Cultivating Winning Relationships

Presented by: SkyeTeam — Chief Executive Officer, Morag Barrett

You cannot be successful in business, or in life, unless you are successful in cultivating winning relationships. In organizations where toxic behaviors are ignored, invariably inefficiencies abound, productivity and customer satisfaction decline and costs go up. This high-impact and interactive session focuses on the “how” of successful businesses, clarifying the rules of engagement across teams. You’ll learn how to articulate the business and personal impact of quality work relationships, diagnose the health of your professional relationships, and determine the next steps for developing ally relationships while managing adversarial relationships. This keynote is based on Morag Barrett’s bestselling book, Cultivate: The Power of Winning Relationships.
