Most participants do this course because they are encouraged by their employer, especially if they have recently taken on a leadership role in the team. Even those that attend rolling their eyes at the agenda leave with something new they hadn’t considered, or reinforcement of something they had forgotten and will reimplement.
There are activities, breakout rooms (if doing the online version), and a fair amount of self-reflection to be found in a CC workshop, with the facilitator usually getting the ball rolling by admitting their weak spots first. To be fair, how could we expect participants to share openly if we aren’t prepared to do so ourselves? Despite over 20 years of facilitating this type of workshop, even our facilitators need reminders when their temper and ire are up.
In attending this workshop, you will be presented with communication theory and how it applies to your role and workplace, a feedback model that you will practice during the workshop, and not just our facilitators’ advice and experience, but also your fellow participants. After four hours, you will feel more confident approaching your boss for a pay rise, discussing those gnarly topics with your team, and bringing up your partner or flatmate’s annoying habit that you just can’t tolerate any longer. It isn’t about being cruel to be kind, it’s about being clear and concise to be fair – and expect a bit back! We will help you to raise the difficult topics and also to respond appropriately when feedback is given to you. Such fun!
Our next workshop is being held in Hamilton on 13/07/22 right here in our Everest People training room, with catering from the amazing Weave Café at Innovation Park.
