Good Practice tip

Give yourself the opportunity to influence key people

You might need to do this as part of keeping to Golden Rule 3:

I will use my powers of diplomacy to anticipate and prevent obstacles arising

Where do I find such opportunities?

  • Turn up early for meetings, you'll get a chance to quickly speak with other early birds

  • In workshops, if food and hot drinks are provided so people don't need to leave, focus less on eating and more on influencing. It's a great time when the other's mouth is full!

  • From time to time, take some quiet thinking work into one of the refectories / coffee rooms where you know your stakeholders and business representatives go.

    When the opportunity arises, perhaps one is in to grab a quick coffee, greet them with a smile and offer to buy the coffee - in exchange for a little of their time. Do it with a cheeky grin.

  • People from the business who are key to project success can exist at any level, from the coal face upwards.

    Within the 'coal face' group will be one or two who are looked up to by their colleagues. You must get these people on-side. Workshops are great places for such opportunitues.

Remember, amongst everything else, you are also an ambassador for the project.
