Communication skills are an essential component of a productive workplace, allowing people to work together cohesively and professionally. Strong communication skills means you can adapt yourself to new and different situations, better understand the behaviour of others, successfully negotiate solutions and avoid and resolve conflict.

This workshop unpacks the individual thinking preferences that underpin communication in order to support individuals to understand the communication styles of themselves and their team. Participants are introduced to Whole Brain Thinking framework as a tool to support increased empathy and enhanced communication skills.

Food: Morning Tea will be provided.
