Workshop B: Effective communication – minimise misunderstandings and increase performance (and happiness!) in the workplace
Friday 20 March, 13.00-16.00
The research tells us that happier people are higher performing. Yet many teams I work with struggle with how to have courageous conversations which leads to a lack of trust and safety, decreased connection, increased stress and lower performance.
This workshop will give you practical tools to:
- Increase your self-awareness and your understanding of others for more effective communication
- Understand your “go-to” or default behaviours during conflict and develop the ability to choose responses that best suit the situation you’re in
- Build your confidence and capability to have courageous conversations, and provide you with a framework
- Understand how to work with “difficult” people (and how sometimes that can actually be you!)
- Be more effective in understanding how to manage yourself during conflict and to choose the behaviours that reflect who you are at your best (not your worst)
