Collaborating can be one of the most rewarding aspects of the Executive Assistant role. Either in your partnership with your executive or the many working relationships, you maintain. How you collaborate can reflect well on you, and your team.
At the heart of effective collaboration is the ability to navigate differences and co-create solutions. For collaboration to work, you need to be willing to get out of the safety of your own ‘lane’, and into the relative messiness of the intersections between your own world and that of others.
In this practical presentation, Simon will explore:
- Sources of difference: understanding the types of difference that typically emerge in the context of collaboration, and how to understand these as opportunities for value creation
- Value-mapping: How to understand and map the different parties’ needs and drivers
- The path to agreement: We explore a 5-step pathway to building agreement
- Dealing with resistance and push back
