NCOSS' "Better Leaders Ask Better Questions" Workshop

29 October 2019 - 9:30am – 29 October 2019 - 4:00pm

Too often, managers spend too much time telling others what to do. Unknowingly, this prevents our teams from being as resourceful, as engaged and as self-motivated as they could be.

This experiential workshop will equip leaders with a simple but highly-effective communications tool. It is part of the well-regarded "Better Questions" suite of resources; which includes seven books, a workshop series and learning toolkits.

While much great work is achieved when organisations join forces, the legal landscape is becoming increasingly complicated. Choosing and implementing an appropriate arrangement for your plans can be challenging.

This "law-in-plain-English" session from Justice Connect will discuss the legal aspects of organisations working together. It will present various options and each of their legal implications, so you can make a more informed decision for your organisation.
