This is one of my first experiences in a class about negotiating. It’s very beneficial especially if some of the things you see yourself doing or common mistakes you shouldn’t be making. Jim puts these into perspective and says don’t do that, don’t get deceived to negotiate. Always try to negotiate with the procedure. These small tips I think you should follow then use a lot of his input into each and every negotiation and hopefully we improve in time. It’s been a great two days! There are a very diverse number of people from different walks of lives and Jim kept us entertained throughout the whole two days!

Kexxel Group: Leaders were enlightened by the 9 habits of trust by John Blakey during his Trusted Executive masterclass

Event Review

The Trusted Executive @ Kuala Lumpur
12 February 2020 - 13 February 2020
In House Training , Management , Leadership   

Kuala Lumpur, 12th – 13th February 2020– As ambiguous as it seemed to break down trust, top managers were in for an eye opening treat as they found out otherwise during Dr. John Blakey’s session at the Grand Millennium. One of the elements of trust that surprised most was benevolence in a usually cold corporate setting.

After a day of pondering theories and cases, the leaders were asked to reflect upon themselves and their organization on the second day. This was done through a self-evaluation test curated by John, to understand where they stood on the trust axis.

Touched by their results, John then introduced them to the 9 habits, the essential ingredients that make up trustworthiness within themselves. Participants went home that day with a deep sense of self-awareness and a new outlook on their culture. A renewed mission to work on themselves to unearth the organic best in their people under their guidance the next day.

Take-a-aways from the attendees:

“The content of the workshop is definitely the main strength of the event. John was very engaging and presented his content in a way that was very easy to understand and well structured. I found this to be a well-managed workshop as the team is very attentive and flexible.”

“Dr. John’s mastery and expertise on the subject matter were what I appreciated the most.
