Workshop 1: Why are you like that?
Do you find that you can get on with some people at work, but struggle with others? Is staff management the biggest issue you face in your business?
Farming is an intense, fast paced environment where positive teamwork is essential for success. How we communicate with each other has a huge impact on efficiency, effectiveness, profitability and the morale of the team. In this workshop, you’ll discover that each of us has a different communication style and behaviour which directly influences how we are perceived by others – and how this can work in your favour or against you. Before you consider how to motivate, lead and inspire your team, you need to know the basics of good communication – and this workshop will show you just how tricky positive communication can be…and the way to make communication work for you.
Workshop 2: “There’s no such thing as Time Management!”
In this interactive and thought provoking workshop, you will discover why Time Management simply isn’t possible… But you will understand the importance of effective planning, prioritising, communicating and delegating and how each of these elements impact on your team’s performance and your bottom line. As you strive for every penny per litre or per acre of profit, you will review simple ways to make your farm a more efficient, more positive and more effective unit.
