Positive Communication across a team is a foundation of building trust. Whilst we all aspire to open and honest communication so often it can be a challenge to achieve for a whole host of reasons. This is a crucial workshop for all teams who work in a fast paced environment.

Giving regular feedback with positive intent is one of the core components of establishing good communication practices across a team. Yet this vital skill for all team members is often one of the biggest challenges.

Have you ever thought - "I should say something but there never seems to be the right time" or " You notice someone is doing really well in an area- but fail to appreciate their input or mention it to them" or when something is not as it should be"If I wait long enough, it will sort itself out."

In reality - we need to give 6 x more positive feedback to our team mates as constructive feedback. Did you know 67% of team mates say they get to little positive feedback. Leaders are often expected to be the ones who solely give both positive and critical feedback in a team - yet the best teams have a consistent stream of performance base feedback across a team...and the most powerful practise is to ensure their is positive intent. If you are keen to shift the communication dynamics in your team - embedding positive communication into your culture will be a game changing shift that you won't look back from.

"Feedback is the breakfast of champions"- Rich Tate
