Cost: $55

WORKSHOP 4:  WORKING WITH YOUR TEAM

Have you ever noticed geese flying overhead? They always fly in a “V” formation. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock can fly 71 percent further than one bird flying on its own. This is a perfect example of effective teamwork!

Effective teamwork is about people working together and discovering that their collective effort is a lot more than the sum of their individual efforts.


What we cover
  • Engagement strategies
  • Developing your EVP (employee Value Proposition)
  • How to become an employer of choice
  • Reward and Recognition that doesn’t cost the earth
  • Managing performance
Attend all 4 workshops for $200 – a saving of $20*

*Book and pay in full for all 4 workshops by Tuesday 30th July.
