I Survived A Toxic Workplace - June 2020 AGM Meeting & Workshop

Choosing to leave a job she really loved because of the toxicity of the work environment was really tough. In retrospect, Sylvia gained so much from that experience and has made a commitment to share her insights to improve Team Dynamics.

What you’ll Gain:

  1. How Accountability really counts: Best practices for successful teams.

  2. Conflict isn’t always interpersonal:  Getting below the surface to the real cause.

  3. Gratitude Rocks: How to show Felt Appreciation to your team members

  4. To Trust … or Not to Trust … What is the difference?

  5. Your Energy Tells all: How we show up is seen by all.

In this session, Sylvia Plester-Silk will share her story and how she uses this to assist Non-Profits to shift their team from conflict to collaboration and cooperation.
