Networking is a dirty word
In this session, we will explore the value of building a strategic network and how this fits within a public sector context. We’ll look at the challenges you face in cultivating strong networks in public sector organisations: trust, behaviours, culture and how to deal with these.
We will consider you in your role as a leader – what is your responsibility in relation to building networks? In an environment of results-based accountability, what impact can networking have?
Finally we’ll identify some tools that can help build strong relationships, starting with self-awareness and clarifying why you do what you do.
