Popular communication and teamwork skills seminar, Get Dotted, will be held in Wanaka next month with tickets going on sale soon.
Hosted by LINK Upper Clutha, Get Dotted’s simple colour coding of personality and communication types explains why some relationships are easier than others, and gives people the skills to build better working relationships and teams.
LINK facilitator Kathy Dedo said, “Our research showed that effective communication and relationship building are key to our community’s success as we grow, and Get Dotted is a direct effort to improve our ability to collaborate and find solutions to our growth challenges.”
Amy Scott will present Get Dotted in two identical evening events on Wednesday, June 20 and Thursday, June 21, at the Lake Wanaka Centre. The evening is fun, entertaining and teambuilding for groups who attend together, with participants gaining a better understanding of their own and others’ communication styles, how to work from their natural strengths, and learn tips for more effective communication with others.
Wanaka business owner Brent Harridge took his employees along when a sold-out Get Dotted event was held here in 2009.
“Get Dotted was a gamechanger for our team and our town. It gave people a common language to understand communication styles. It reduced stress in our workplace as it helped us all relate better with each other, especially understanding those with different perspectives and communication styles,” Brent said.
“Now more than ever we need to work together in the Upper Clutha to maintain and foster our special community spirit, Get Dotted will help us do that more effectively. I encourage any work team or community group to come along – it’s a fun and rewarding night out.”
Kathy said local sponsorship had been obtained which had enabled LINK to keep the ticket prices down.
“Get Dotted usually costs hundreds of dollars per person, but we’re so convinced this will benefit our community, we are making the ticket price an accessible $30 to allow as many people as possible to participate,” she said.
