WORKGROUP ROLES

  • Your role: the workgroups are short and are made up of a small group of busy people, it’s therefore up to you to ensure that you get the most out of the time available. We are always looking for ways to improve and we encourage constructive feedback and ideas that will ensure you get value from it. Experience shows that you will get more if you challenge more. It’s called a Workgroup and that means you will have to work. We have found our workgroups work best when there is openness and honesty, when people strive for clarity and when they leave their ego’s at the door!
  • Our role: We are facilitator’s who are there to maintain the group’s focus, to keep an eye on the time and to evolve and improve the process.
