Tuesday 30 October FULL, Thursday 6 December now open- Managing Personalities/Effective Communication Skills
Build a better understanding of yourself and the styles and preferences of your staff so you can communicate and work more effectively together. This high energy, fun workshop brings theory to life and provides meaningful insights and strategies for positive change so you’ll be communicating not only clearly and confidently, but with impact and authority.

Thursday 29 November FULL, Friday 7 December – Having Difficult Conversations
