Collaborative Leadership Training

The wisdom and experience of your whole organisation or team can be harnessed with practical skills and confidence from a collaborative manager.

Keen to collaborate but feel like you’re missing the mark?

We’re better together.

Your leadership staff need to both identify and make the most of the wisdom and experience in their organisation or team. With so many operational issues to address and negotiate, however, the emotional content is often overlooked. The advantage of an emotionally resilient leader is having the skills and awareness to build a stronger, more successful organisation.

Why our training with your staff?

We provide a comprehensive container to develop the practical skills and confidence your staff require for collaborative management. Learning more about yourself as a manager provides a strong and practical foundation for enhancing your management skills.

Our approach to training

We create an environment where you can look at your work practices with safety and lightness. Our work is lively, experiential and practical – and fosters emotional resilience throughout. And we have a bit of fun along the way!

A large part of the program is devoted to practising skills using situations your staff members want to work on. We encourage them to bring real-life examples, and we allow time for them to address individual needs and issues faced in the workplace.

Held at Groupwork Centre Training Rooms.
