Course Style / Who for:

The five modules collectively form part of this introductory course, but can also each be taken independently. All modules are interactive group teleconference sessions of 1 hour each. They involve peer discussion or practice in small groups (over the phone).

The workshop series and modules are for leaders, managers, executives, workers or personnel in corporations, governement, health, academia, and entreprises; or for consultants, coaches, trainers, faculty and specialists in any organisation who are seeking the relevant expertise or insight.

The workshops are highly interactive, requiring substantial degree of oral input, discussion and practice from participants in break out groups, either to share experiences from your workplace or practice specific skills being learned. You may also be asked to consider and share with others how you might apply what you are learning to your workplace. These modules are not suitable for simply listening in, maximum benefit from these workshops will only be gained by full participation. Some supplementary visual support online may be offered, but this is optional and online access is not required during the call.
