Attendees at the first Business Bootcamp workshop agree their business is stronger after participating in the Conflict Resolution session last week, presented by the Hastings Business Women's Network in collaboration with North Coast TAFE.
As the HBWN Professional Development sponsor, North Coast TAFE has scheduled a series of three workshops designed to assist participants with conflict resolution, collaborative technology and public speaking.
TVET students, currently taking an extension in hospitality at Port Macquarie TAFE, prepared indulgent refreshments for participants whilst they shared a brief networking opportunity before being welcomed into the Graduates Restaurant to begin their 'workout'.
North Coast TAFE Communications teacher, Siandra Putica, put the ladies through their paces addressing how to effectively manage conflict in the workplace.
A robust and friendly discussion, using real-life examples of conflict in the workplace, explored the many ways in which to resolve a difficult situation. Attendees were given five tools to choose from in order to diffuse or resolve conflict in their business.
HBWN President Karen Archer said, "North Coast TAFE delivered a presentation that was both entertaining and engaging. We left with some great ideas and solutions that were useful and practical for our businesses. I'm really looking forward to the next session!"
The successful collaboration between HBWN and North Coast TAFE has provided members and guests with custom designed training that meets the needs of local business women.
"Each workshop has been prepared and delivered around the needs of our target audience. Based on requests from the HBWN members, we were able to put together a package that is not just lots of fun to participate in, but also provides relevant information and tools for them to take into the workplace for growth and prosperity," said North Coast TAFE Community Relations Officer, Trisha McIntyre.
The next workshop on 2 September will present a seminar on Collaboration Technology to look at ways to use apps and software to enhance your business and keep you organised.
Limited tickets are available, which can be purchased for $50 for HBWN members and $60 for non-members. For further details and to secure your spot go to www.hbwn.com.au
