Brisbane ALARA Conversation - A conversation with Bob Dick

When: Thu, 06/04/2017
Where: 2/27 Jordan Terrace, Bowen Hills, Qld, Australia

Building relationships, crafting agreement from disagreement

Though it was a hard lesson, Bob eventually learned that relationships are important. When they are sound, everything else is easier. For an educator, a facilitator, coach or change consultant, developing and maintaining good relationships provides a sound foundation for effective work.

In this conversation we’ll examine processes for building relationships and, as necessary, managing disagreement.
