One of the common elements that tie these communities together is that quality practitioners are never satisfied with what they know, how they apply their skills, and in what areas of practice their skills are applied. In this highly interactive training, learn strategies and techniques that have been successfully implemented in communities around the world. Practice leading edge methods to strengthen your teams, provide effective feedback, and address conflict before and when it arises.
