Session One - Team-Building and Communication Styles
This workshop is designed to enhance the ability of a team to work together in times of calm or times of stress. Using the Friendly Style Profile for Communication at Work(TM), participants learn about their own communication styles, how to appreciate style diversity and manage excesses, and how to bring out the best in self and others. Leadership styles in times of conflict are also examined, along with guidance in effective communication skills and team-building. Excellent for a newly formed team or board. Participants receive a booklet (pdf) and will need to complete a questionnaire by Friday, October 28. A link to a questionnaire will be emailed by Friday, October 14.
Session Two - Meetings with More Light and Less Heat
Ever participated in a difficult meeting? Gather the tools for building
facilitation skills and confidence and helping to make effective decisions,
even in the face of challenging issues. Learn the best way to structure
meetings with an eye to efficiency, openness and clarity; basic guidelines
to use when anxiety levels are high and tension fills the meeting room; and
how to lead difficult discussions.
