Managing Workplace Performance

Face-to-Face Training

iHR Australia's face-to-face training uses Workplace Reality Theatre, where professional actors re-enact real workplace situations. This unique teaching methodology utilises storytelling and role plays to illustrate typical workplace behaviours. Participants find this highly engaging and helpful in discussing their thoughts and feelings, which in turn highlights core concepts and encourages learning. This methodology enables participants to recognise some elements in their own behaviour.
