This practical, virtual workshop covers

  • Supporting people virtually – what’s different and what are the challenges?
  • Creating engagement from a distance –being close apart
  • 3 SIMPLE skills that make the most difference
  • Listening for the heart of the matter
  • Using the power of positive feedback

The workshop comes with a comprehensive ‘toolkit’ handout which will be emailed to you containing tools and skills that you can use immediately.
