Cultural Intelligence

In this half-day interactive workshop you will be provided with the tools to develop your own Cultural Intelligence and develop your ability to communicate and connect across cultures through practical, real-life examples. Cultural Intelligence is key to productive cross-cultural interactions, whether we are serving culturally diverse customers or working together in multicultural teams. It provides a framework for understanding culture at a deeper level and a method to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that support success in multicultural Australia.

Date:              Tuesday 5 April
Time:           9:00am – 12:30pm

Light refreshments will be provided
The above training is delivered by IllumiNations Cultural Training

Introduction to Facilitative Leadership

In this one-day workshop you will learn skills for leading groups and events that elicit everyone’s participation and reach trustworthy and agreed results. The content of the course comes from you, the participants. The methods give you clear guidance for using them for different tasks and settings, such as one-on-one interactions, designing, planning and evaluating projects, with your own teams or other organisations. You will leave this workshop with confidence to grow cooperation and effectiveness in groups and how to adapt the processes to your own situations in life and work.
