Benefit of Attending

Consider the price an organisation pays when only half the people show initiative, fewer than half feel they can be candid about tough issues, and only a third possess individual work goals, plan their time, or contemplate how to improve their performance. Let’s face it. Individual strengths and personal effort drive effective organisations. Unfortunately, with common distractions, conflicting priorities, unclear objectives, poor communication and lack of trust, it’s easy to burn out and lose focus.
