Why this workshop?
Using the powerful influencing skills learned, you are able to build collaborative relationships, build trust and get your expertise used, by working in partnership with clients, colleagues and stakeholders. In this world-renowned workshop, you will learn that being a trusted partner does not just happen by chance. It is an executive skillset that must be learned. We help you to cultivate the skills through a process of lecture, role-play and reflection.

Whether you need to influence your client, boss, co-worker, customer or an absolute stranger, Flawless Consulting provides you with a proven system to rise above the many obstacles in consulting to accelerate the value of business partnering, building your capacity to connect as a highly-trusted ally and strategic partner.

The objective of the Flawless Consulting1: Contracting workshop is to provide the key building blocks for authentic collaboration, strategic partnerships and powerful influencing.
 
Learn how to develop leadership skills, build trust and get your expertise used, by working in partnership with clients, colleagues and stakeholders.
 
This is the first workshop in the Flawless Consulting series, designed for anyone who needs to be able to influence horizontally and vertically within and across organisational boundaries. In this workshop, you will understand that being a true partner does not just happen any more than quality just happens.  It has to be learned. Valuing the relationship between you and your client/colleague/stakeholder and defining how to manage that relationship is where Flawless Consulting has found its niche.
 
Methodology
This workshop is highly interactive. Brief lectures are used to present initial key concepts. You will then become deeply immersed in the material through interactive simulations with one or two other participants and will have time for deep reflection on each of the processes. The workshop also includes written exercises to apply key concepts to your own unique situation and a video recording of an exercise.

What others have said...
“I was impressed with the quality of the facilitators and their deep consulting expertise. I appreciated how easy the team made it to offer these valuable workshops in remote locations. Bottom line - participants left with the improved knowledge and skills to be better consultants to their clients and organisations.”  - Bob Luton, Microsoft Corporation
 
“I enjoyed the interaction and practical nature of the workshop. The model is particularly helpful because it guides you to focus on discovering what the real issue is. This is such a powerful workshop because it allows you to cut through all the unnecessary politics and clutter to implement and execute with collective effort.” - Ayesha Ismail, Chief Human Resources Officer, FEM
 
“The practical approach to understanding the customer/stakeholder (and consultation steps) has helped me to such an extent that I have gone back to my business and re-contracted with each of my stakeholders. They have complimented me for being proactive and engaging. Of course, there are some difficult stakeholders however; they will come around. I left feeling empowered and I will definitely return for FC 2 next year.”  - Mpho Mogale, Learning Consultant, Old Mutual Insure
