Cultivating Productive Relationships

Date: October 25, 2017 

Abstract: This webinar is for statisticians and data scientists who recognize that one of the keys to successful outcomes in their work is the importance of the relationships they have with others. Cultivating these relationships is not so much about skills as they are about the “excavation” and manifestation of our attributes and intentions. This seminar will focus on several important elements: How does one have conversations that will help clarify the wants and needs of colleagues and clients? How do you dig deeper into these conversations and everyone’s interests so you can best address them? How do you establish an ongoing connection with others? We will introduce / reinforce a number of tools and approaches to help develop and deepen these relationships including how to build trust and safety; using appreciative inquiry; active listening; and building commitment.
