Building Advisory Relationships

Over a career, a point always comes when excellence in what you do is not enough. To be more strategic and effective in your role, you find you need to influence those you have no formal authority over – or those who may even officially lead you. To do that, you need to be seen as a trusted advisor.

The Building Advisory Relationships Seminar covers the nature of the advisor relationship and offers practical counsel on how to establish those of trust, partnership, and influence with senior clients. Diana Hong and Kristin Fenty of CRA’s Strategic Communication Practice will lead a developmental discussion across six areas:

  • What it Means to be a “Trusted Advisor”
  • Giving Advice for Effect
  • What It Means to be Interpersonally Strategic
  • Forging Executive Relationships
  • Developing an Executive Style
  • Cultivating Professional Expertise

Your registration includes, complimentary, our proprietary Leadership Style Assessment. The content spans three two-hour virtual sessions across two days, with an intentionally small group to drive deep dialogue and learning. While subject to change, the agenda is:

  • Wednesday, November 8: 10:30 am-noon Eastern and 1:30-3:30 pm Eastern
  • Thursday, November 9: 9:00-11:00 am Eastern
  • After the Seminar: One-to-one coaching sessions for each participant, optional
