Workshop description:

In times of shrinking resources, our efforts to make Govan a resourceful and vibrant place requires we work more effectively together, foster a culture of dialogue, and achieve things at the same time as get on with people we work
with.

This series of workshops will equip you with tools to use in challenging conversations. You will:

• Learn to speak your trust and still stay in connection;
• Transform challenges into opportunities for collaboration;
• Be better equipped to know what to say in difficult conversations;
• Facilitate meetings more skilfully;
• Give and receive feedback without criticism;
• Be more able to foster trust, willingness and creativity among teams;
• Less often leave things unsaid and therefore feel re-energised in life and at
work.

The workshops will be collaborative at heart. Examples brought by participants will form the core of our work together and the basis of universal principles that will be applicable across workplaces and real life situations.
