Speaking Topics
  • Becoming an Indispensable Partner - Keys to Creating High Value Relationships

    The Becoming an Indispensable Partner™ Program (BaIP) provides a practical, principle-based roadmap to building the skills of beginning, maintaining, and growing relationships that produce meaningful action, measurable results, and maximum value – which are critically important keys to success for every leader, manager and relationship manager.

    BaIP assists managers and leaders in dramatically increasing their success in developing powerful, sustainable, long-term, high-value business relationships with their people. Managers and leaders often find there are challenging relationships, or relationships with unfulfilled potential that they need to move, change or affect. Understanding and applying BaIP skills can turn around a difficult relationship, revive a sagging relationship, and take any relationship – even an exceptionally good one – to new heights of collaboration, value, impact, and results.

    Skillfulness with OKBR principles leads to:

    • Faster engagement and a higher level of rapport with all the key people you need to influence

    • Capability to shift others’ attention and focus to what matters most

    • Ability to quickly facilitate what is most important, meaningful and valuable to the other person – the key to gaining their trust, attention, engagement and commitment

    • Building partnerships that align around the mutual best interests of your people and organization

    • Avoiding acting on requests that ultimately do not lead to high value results, including the ability to decline requests in ways that actually enhance the relationship

    Whether dealing with new relationships or long-standing ones, BaIP skills allow managers and leaders to maximize their impact, collaboration and value with their people and clients. The ability to facilitate and bring forth what is most important in your relationships and engagements leads to agreements, action and results of great meani
