How to Build Your Reputation by Building Strong Relationships…

Whether we realise it or not, there are multiple stakeholders in our lives. From our families, to our friends and colleagues, everyone has a complex pattern of relationships to manage in their everyday lives.

Courtesy of Helen Stride (Henley Business School, University of Reading) and Mike Green (experienced executive coach and accredited MBTI practitioner), the Researcher Development team is offering a workshop on this topic. It challenges participants to think about how best to leverage these connections with the intent of building professional reputation, both within and outside a research context.

Helen is a member of faculty at Henley Business School (HBS), Reading University. She teaches Reputation and Corporate Responsibility, Not-for-profit (NFP) Marketing and Research Methods. Before joining HBS, Helen spend eight years working in the NFP sector.

Bringing together her interests in civil society and responsible leadership, Helen has also recently launched the Henley Community Partnership (HCP), which works with local NFPs to help address some of Reading’s most pressing social issues while encouraging MBA students to consider their ethical responsibilities.
