Two workshops available

For details about our friendly, qualified and professional presenter, Nadia Dick, please click here.
The two workshops themes are as follows:

Programme for each day

9.00am - 10.00am, Trust and Vulnerability - the dance that grows successful teams

It is common knowledge that trust is essential in creating a cohesive team however, many leaders struggle with exactly how to build trust and the role that vulnerability plays in this. This engaging presentation gives attendees helpful metaphors and language to turn the often-ambiguous concept of 'trust' into practical steps and ways forward aimed at creating productive, transparent, and healthy teams. 

10am – 10.30am     Morning tea provided

10.30am - 11.30am, Courageous Conversations - talking in the spaces that are uncomfortable

Research shows that being able to engage in tough conversations is a critical component to enable teams and organisations to thrive.  It can also be an area where many feel unsure of how to proceed and consequently avoidance, passive aggressive behaviours, and other not so healthy alternatives, can grow instead.  This presentation is filled with practical examples and a simple structure that will be useful for all levels of your organisation, helping attendees grow confidence with conversing and stepping into the spaces that are uncomfortable, whether they are part of a team or managing a team.
