The complexity of today’s business environment elevates the critical place of effective communication and good interpersonal relationship in the workplace. In the face of economic uncertainties, a surge in the virtual aspect of business, an increase in the intricacy of expectations of stakeholders and competition styles, relationship management has drastically changed from what it used to be in the past. Economic, social and political pressures are forcing people and organisations to rework the way relationships are managed.

The programme takes off from the research-supported view that the ability to manage relationships is hinged on a deep understanding and appreciation of self.
