Building Bridges - Not Barriers   

Year Granted: 2007
Institute: Academy of Training

DESCRIPTION
The ability to build and maintain positive relationships with others is one of the key elements for success both personally and professionally. However, to do so requires insight, skill and, most importantly, a commitment to do everything we can to make our relationships with others as positive as possible by eliminating the negative.

This programme examines ways of building and maintaining those relationships, especially in times of difficulty or stress. It also looks at how to build valuable networks which may assist us in the future and how we can impact these both positively and negatively according to our own behaviour and attitude.
