Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What more do you need to know?

What’s the difference in learning Quality between  face to face workshops and online sessions?

There is none. In fact, being online means you have extra time to interact with the material and extend your skills. It all boils down to how you feel most comfortable. Some people prefer face to face (kanohi ki te kanohi), while others like to miss the traffic and be in a familiar environment.

 How will I learn?

These are interactive workshops with exercises where you get to practice what you learn. Online we’ll make use of breakout rooms. I will coach you through these techniques because I want you to be confident to use these communication skills and be able to apply these in your context.

What if there are more than 5 people from one location?

Let’s negotiate a host location. I can come to your workplace and provide the Transforming Communication course there, if it has access to a kitchenette or kitchen and meets health and safety requirements. The benefit is you get to feel comfortable in your own space.
