This workshop is based on a powerful training design known as a Human Interaction Laboratory. Participants work together as a group in order to interact with and receive feedback from one another in a relatively unstructured setting that has been proved to be highly effective in enhancing interpersonal skills. It is called a ‘laboratory’ because you have the opportunity to learn how others really see you, and you can then experiment with new, successful ways of interacting.
To assure an in-depth personal learning experience, this workshop is limited to seven people, each drawn from different organisations.
This workshop qualifies for NZ Trade and Enterprise’s Capability Development Voucher Scheme.
