"Seek first to understand, then to be understood", Stephen Covey

Communication skills underpin everything we do. They are the basic building block for organisational success and are the key to effective teamwork, leadership, conflict resolution, and interpersonal relationships. Organisations in which employees communicate well also invariably possess a more supportive organisational culture and a safer workplace.

We are always communicating not just through words but also through our actions, our intentions, our body language, and tone of voice.

Communication in the Workplace

In a modern workplace, where people of different backgrounds, experiences and cultures come together, it can be a challenge to communicate effectively.As communication breaks down we see a steady decrease in respect, staff morale, creativity, and work output and a corresponding increase in conflict and hostility. When employees communicate well, however, people’s differences become an asset as varied backgrounds, skills, and experiences can be harnessed to provide a stronger and more productive team. People learn not only to respect, but to value differences in each other.

We believe communication is so important that every one of our learning programs includes discussion of communication theories, skills, and helpful tips.We also understand that communication in the workplace comes with its own challenges and in many guises. Our programs deal with the many facets of workplace communication such as mentoring, delegating, problem solving, customer service, and preventing conflicts.


We offer short and sharp Tune-Up workshops, half-day, full-day or multi-day programs designed to help you develop your team's communication skills.

We're happy to design a program to suit your objectives, or customise one of our pre-designed learning packages. Programs that may be of interest to you include:

Communication Essentials

It's time to bust the myths stifling communication! We pull together all the best tips, tricks and theories, blend them with your own life experiences and knowledge, shake it up with insightful activities, and deliver it all in one day that will transform how you communicate with others.

Communication and Conflict Prevention Workshop

This one day facilitated program will not just produce better communicators, but people who appreciate and value differences, search for win-win solutions, and know how to get the best out of themselves and others. It is packed with plenty of theory and activities to put new skills and ideas into practice.

Team Development Foundation Course

Building knowledge takes time, changing habits takes even longer. This modular, multi-session course is designed to bring about real change in your team. Modules address areas such as self-awareness; communication; working together; planning and goal setting; and values, culture and positivity. Modules reinforce and build on each other and provide time for participants to apply their learnings progressively in the workplace.

Leadership Workshop

In a safe and enriched two-day learning environment we offer challenges for developing leaders to allow them to experience success, as well as failure. Experiential activities challenge participants to think about their own leadership styles, qualities and practices. Through reflection, discussion of theories, and exploration of experiences, participants can identity their strengths and areas for improvement.

Custom Programs

From 30 minutes to 30 days, let us know your requirements and desired outcomes, and we’ll work with you to create a professional program that is as unique as your business. We can help roll out your new safety initiatives, corporate values, customer service expectations and more by dovetailing your content with complementary theories, insights, and enjoyable experiential activities.

And don't forget the part that sharing laughter and an exciting challenge can play in enhancing trust and respect in the workplace. One of our fun days may be exactly what you need to create lasting bonds and boost morale and positivity in the workplace.
