"WOW Dani! What an amazing day. So inspiring that I have spent the last two & a half hours since I got home jotting down my 'take away' learnings from the day & starting a Results based action plan so I don't forget today's many "aha" moments. All this on a Friday night, with the flu, after a 7 & 1/2hr training day! I've never done this straight after a course before. Dani, you have INSPIRED me. Thank you!"

Leading Diverse Teams

Teams that are diverse usually have more difficulty getting established, but it is a well worth investment to create a good foundation for collaborative work. Research shows that diverse teams, when they learn to work well together, yield the best outcomes in terms of innovation, and as a consequence often also in productivity. This course is ideal for knowledge workers, such as IT experts and engineers. It will provide tools to improve time and workload management, meeting management and, above all, how to establish good working relationships and deal positively with conflict.

Team Leadership Development

Line managers have a key role in the organisation. A successful line manager or team leader steers and guides their supervisees in the right direction. They need to be effective at managing people issues, including staffing, resources, and conflicts. Negotiation and conflict resolution is one of the greatest challenges, as is the ability to confer meaning to management strategic goals and translate them into workable units. 

In this program team leaders learn, among other things:
  • Underlying motivations in human behaviour, how they may play out in group interactions within teams, and how to manage interpersonal conflicts effectively;
  • How to improve performance and increase workplace wellbeing at the same time;
  • To gain confidence in dealing with people issues, developing important skills that enhance interpersonal relationships; 
  • To learn more effective ways to deal with and resolve conflict between team members; 
  • To develop effective strategies in order to facilitate positive interactions during meetings and ensuring goals are met.

Developing Resilience in Leaders

All leaders have good qualities that make them successful. However, when stress levels are extremely high, keeping emotions in check and making decisions calmly can be quite challenging. Developing tools to draw on in highly challenging situations or unchartered environments and continuously practicing for such an event will help to confront the hardest issues and obtain positive outcomes. Understanding emotions and behaviours and the dynamics that occur within those circumstances are key to developing resilience.

This day course will provide you with tools to draw on when faced with great challenges, which will contribute to your own levels of personal resilience as well as others' as they model your behaviour. Your ability to reflect and learn from your experience and in interaction with others will help you develop your interpersonal communication and relationship skills.

We are more resourceful than we think. In this course, Dani shows clients how to increase their personal resilience, use current strengths and develop new ones. She teaches how our mind functions and how to tame our mind to be in control of our emotions instead of external circumstances controlling us. In this course, clients learn to use meditation and visualization techniques to relax their mind any time of the day. She uses knowledge from ancient philosophy and human psychology to explain strongly rooted human issues and how to solve them.
