Dear All,

Happy New Year and all the best for all of you in 2015!

We will start the year's management meetup series with a workshop on Non-Violent Communication. The workshop and topic was kindly offered by Andrew Kidd, our meetup member, an Agile Change and Performance Coach, Trainer and Facilitator at Certainty.

In this workshop, Andy will introduce us to one of his favourite and most useful tools for working with creative tension and conflict - Non-violent Communication.

You will learn:

• How to build trust, resolve conflict and use creative tension to improve performance within teams

• Techniques to develop your emotional intelligence and personal practice

• How to harness the wisdom of the group, whilst avoiding the stupidity of the herd

Who should attend:

Anybody who is, or may be involved in, the delivery of ‘complex’ projects in an organisational environment that needs to get more value from their collaborative working


6:30pm - Doors open

6:45pm - Talk/Workshop starts promptly

8pm - Pizza and networking.
