Business Analysts Leadership Workshop

Cliftons Wellington

Hide Section - About the Event
Business analysts hold a unique place within their organisation, tackling the complexities of data interpretation and devising solutions to overcome problems. Frameworks and forecasts form the backbone of any successful business analyst role, but in order to transition up to the next level and emerge as a true leader and business partner, business analysts need to expand their knowledge base and master a new set of leadership skills.

This two day interactive workshop will give participants the leadership skills they need to effectively guide and support their team and reinforce best practice. Attendees will learn how to communicate with influence in order to enhance positive outcomes while also progressing their own career goals. Throughout this two-day workshop, participants will experience an overview of essential soft skills that are sometimes overlooked when navigating the increasingly technical field of business analytics.

This hands-on learning program will explore the foundations of good leadership, provide insight into communication styles and effective tools for engaging with staff and stakeholders. The experience will provide practical solutions to real-world problems commonly faced by business analyst leaders.
