Resources: Reading material and a printable (if you choose) workbook will be provided prior to each workshop session.

This workshop explores a range of techniques you can use to have effective conversations with volunteers. We will explore:

  • What makes difficult conversations so hard
  • Impact - why we need to address behaviours and performance issues
  • A greater understanding of self talk and emotional intelligence
  • How to challenge unwanted behaviour and encourage “above the line” language
  • A process for identifying issues and engaging in effective communication.


Open until Friday 29 March 2024 at 4:00pm
