Why The Relational Business Partner? The demand for Business Partners to add value and enable their internal clients to succeed has never been higher. As margins reduce, and operating costs are squeezed further, Business Partners are required to deliver more and demonstrate outstanding value. Adding value comes in many shapes and sizes, but the true success of value delivery is built on more than just the technical expertise offered by the Business Partner. Genuine Business Partnering success is underpinned by:
the development of high quality and productive relationships,
a strong collaborative style, and
the ability to understand, and work with, the relational dynamics of the different groups they support.
What is covered in The Relational Business Partner? This course provides Business Partners with a relational philosophy, approach and set of skills that will enhance their partnering style and support them in achieving more effective results. This course is ideal for functional leaders and Business Partners across any part of the business including human resources, IT, finance and procurement.
