This program helps you reframe the situations and focus your energy on getting the best outcomes. This program is designed to assist participants to cope effectively with situations which could be classified as 'challenging'. Through an experiential learning process participants will be guided through a journey of understanding as well as specific skill development in the areas of reflective listening, rapport building, developing self awareness, assertiveness and delighting in diversity.
