Learn how to build trust, safety, open communication. It’s all about helping people get along together at work.
Does your team need to build trust, safety and open communication?
The best that Groupwork Institute can do to help teams work well together is to provide a safe space where people can have the real conversations about how they’re getting along. Once we know the priorities, we can tailor our training for you to develop a kitbag of tools and processes to work well together, building on existing strengths.
Best undertaken with a whole team.
It may be fun to do paintballing or ropes courses, but do it after you’ve had the real conversation!
Why our training for your staff?
Our skill is in providing high quality facilitation and an effective process where robust discussions will lead to the pooling of all participants’ ideas, and synthesising them into an agreed way forward. This participatory approach leads to people owning the outcomes generated, creating highly effective and sustained teamwork
We undertake a thorough exploration of your team’s story, team values, issues and strengths. We always tailor content around your group’s specific needs, working on specific communication issues faced by the team. We pay special attention to tricky communication situations where your highest skills are needed.

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 allow time to address individual needs and issues faced in the workplace.
