March 7, 2020 @ 1:00 pm 4:30 pm Australia/Sydney

Dysfunctional behaviour has a negative impact on workplace performance and personal relationships. In this session, we will look at what causes psychological games for different types and the various ways these games may manifest. We will look at practical ways to intervene to maintain healthy relationships. And we will include some practical exercise to help liberate yourself from worries and fears and inspire change in your life. This practical session is useful for anyone but is particularly useful if you work in counselling, coaching, management, teaching or team building.
