About this event

“People don’t leave companies, they leave managers.”

This is a frequently used adage that most people come across when job searching. Whilst it may not be the sole reason why people leave companies, it is certainly true that the relationships we build with our managers, colleagues, and direct reports have a massive impact on our day-to-day satisfaction and long-term career progression.

Unfortunately, almost every job we hold in our lifetimes will present some type of difficult relationship, whether it’s a demanding manager or a gossipy colleague. The good news is that we can learn how to better navigate these situations by equipping ourselves with the right knowledge and tools.

The aim of this session is to help attendees reduce the negative impact of any current or future workplace relationships. We will do this through teaching you how to:

  • Identify common ‘personas’ in the workplace and their unique working styles
  • Understand and reflect on your own workplace behaviours
  • Use tools and strategies for tackling specific situations
  • Recognise red flags when searching for your next role

Please note that this session is not going to address people management skills for managers (that will require a completely separate workshop!). This session is primarily focused on navigating difficult relationships with managers and fellow colleagues.
