Feedback to Feedforward
Being able to communicate feedback effectively is a key skill of any leader or high functioning team. Rather than avoid conflict, the high performing teams can tolerate conflict for growth. We also know for some, receiving positive feedback can be just as difficult as constructive feedback. In this workshop, you'll be given the opportunity to learn how to deliver & receive feedback & 'feed-forward' information authentically and honestly.
Mental Health in the Workplace
We know that life presents unique challenges to us all and there are universal responses to the demands placed on us emotionally and mentally. Being able to discuss mental health in an open and non-judgemental way creates a richer space for us all to work and thrive in. In this workshop you'll be given practical strategies and tools to attend to your own mental health as well as know how to support those you work with.
90 mins, half-day workshop
Whether you're a high functioning team looking to make tough decisions or founders looking to gain more clarity and increase communication, it all starts with honest conversations. With up to 65% of businesses failing due to interpersonal conflict in the founding team, taking the time to nurture your relationship can be the best investment you make.
In this workshop we'll look at the common traps people fall into in their work relationships, and a communication tool designed to avoid growing resentments, stress and burnout. In the half day workshop, you'll also learn the traits of an emotionally fit founder and how to start applying this into your company immediately.
Understanding & Overcoming Self Sabotage
45 mins, 90 mins, 120 mins
From Olympian athletes to highly successful leaders, self-sabotage does not discriminate. If you have ever felt inferior, fraudulent or held back by fear of your inner critical voice, this workshop is for you. Self sabotage can be crippling to performance and lead to a lot of destructive behaviours. This workshop will help you understand it and how to overcome it with practical tools and strategies.
Become a Boundary Boss
60 mins, 90 mins
So many people find themselves going one of two ways in the face of their anger; passive or aggressive. In work as in life, being able to use our assertiveness effectively means that we can set and negotiate boundaries, hold ourselves and others accountable, ask for what we want and overcome obstacles that may prevent us from achieving our goals. This workshop will help you to define what assertiveness is and how to use it to your advantage.
