You gave me so much to think about and judging by the talk in the staff room today, you have really given the teachers a lot to think about as well! They were full of glowing comments! THANK YOU!!” – Kim (Acting Principal Queensland Primary School)

School staff are facing unprecedented levels of stress and change in the way education is delivered and operates. As the world of education changes, the success of staff in schools will increasingly depend upon their soft skills, coping skills and ability to be innovative and manage change. To help school staff, we offer a range of unique, interactive seminars designed for you with a focus on health, well-being, mindfulness and soft skills. All programs are delivered in a warm and engaging way. Your staff will laugh along with me as we explore the strange ways people behave and look at how we can do it better in the future.

Choose from the following range of soft skill workshops for your staff or request our presenter to design one for you. Please note that designing fun programs for staff retreats is something we love doing and can tailor a program specifically for your staff and the time frame you have available.
