This year the cost will generously be covered though partnership with the Whale Foundation and Grand Canyon River Guides.
Description:This optional two and a half hour workshop for guides and new leaders is intended to encourage effective conversations and interactions between fellow guides, guests, and team members. We know when trust in teams is built and conflict is handled well, trips are safer, more inclusive and respectful, and ultimately more enjoyable for everyone involved. This workshop begins to identify why it can be so challenging to have effective conversations, addresses actively dealing with conflict head-on when necessary, and how to encourage trust and teamwork among crews. We all communicate all the time and we all can stand to do it a little better; this is an opportunity to learn how!
Outcomes:By attending this workshop, participants will:- Understand the components of effective interactions- Gain tools to assist in having effective conversations - Learn strategies to build trust among teams and crews- Apply tools through scenario work
