Signature Presentation – Stronger Communities, Disarming Bullying
Unpacking what bullying is, what it is not, why people do it, and how to stop it! Primary school and High School presentations available. Unpacking bullying behaviour and identifying bullying behaviour specifically both in the physical sphere and the cyber sphere. The session then explores the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’. This leads to issues of self-esteem and self-worth. Other issues that are covered include the dangerous implications that bullying behaviour has on both victims and perpetrators. Self-esteem is positively reinforced for all present, victims, perpetrators and by standers alike. The session then moves into how the school year group, school community can put into practice, practical steps to help eradicate bullying culture and focus on striving for excellence in dream and goal setting, removing the negative and replacing it with the positive paradigm.

Know your worth
What is a healthy relationship? What does a healthy relationship actually looks like? This is a session designed for senior students, years 10-12, as a circuit breaker for domestic family abuse and violence by articulating and helping students initially understand their intrinsic self-worth and value, then breaking down step by step what a positive healthy relationship actually looks like covering factors such as respect, love, boundaries, communication, freedom and grit. Exploring each of these positive attributes of a healthy relationship and providing a real-life positive example that students can identify and compare to the relationships they have experienced, are currently experiencing and provide a vision for future relationships. This session comes with a free downloadable e-book that the students receive after the session. The main focus is on the positive rather than the negative. When students are exposed to the reality of positive relationships, they are well versed to self-identify negative relationships, if their home life is exposed as being abusive, the school counsellors and welfare officers are always alerted.

Workplace Wellbeing
Deciphering bullying, understanding how to create a positive and productive workplace environment. For the corporate arena. Workplace bullying costs the Federal economy in excess of $36 Billion in lost productivity according the federal productivity commission 2016. Staff turnover is a major contributor for organisations lack of productivity, as is sick leave, stress leave, poor morale and even internal sabotage. Workplace bullying is at epidemic proportions and many HR departments are at a loss as to how to deal with it for fear they are seen as not doing a good job, so many in HR ignore or conceal, or worse, wait for litigation rather than invest in a proven preventative model. Any workplace that wants to increase staff morale, decrease staff turnover, increase productivity and workplace safety providing a mentally stable and supportive environment needs this program.
