Community Futures Cariboo Chilcotin hosted two workshops on Human Resources and Personal Development.

Facilitated by John Singleton, the workshops focused on stress and time management. Participants explored what causes stress, how it impacts their lives, and methods for controlling their reaction to stressful situations. The group also learned how to make simple adjustments in their workdays to manage their time more effectively. Thirty-five people attended the evening session.

Wednesday offered a full day of learning and was attended by 44 people. The morning was dedicated to a leadership workshop where participants identified the difference between leading and managing. Participants also explored their personal challenges and strengths as a leader.

The afternoon session focused on communicating as a leader, including how to be more effective in communicating with different types of communication styles.
