Team Building – Nanaimo Airport Commission
Mike Hooper, President and CEO – Nanaimo Airport Commission. The program offers a solid foundation for team building as it applies to communication, understanding individual differences and implementing change in the workplace.
Doug Fern, Safety and Security Officer – Nanaimo Airport Commission. It is good to analyse ourselves and find ways to improve even if we feel we can’t. We don’t have to change who we are but we can enhance who we are and how we function.
Shari Barker, Environment Data Specialist – Nanaimo Airport Commission. There is always something to learn about yourself and each other as each individual grows. Communication and understanding is key to work and personal life. This course is a great tool.
Emma Hamilton, Office Administration, Nanaimo Airport Commission. I think it is a valuable tool in helping to understand each person and understand the reasons why they think and act the way they do. I would strongly recommend this to families that have developed/grow through marriage/partners etc.
Lynn Behnke, Business Manager – Nanaimo Airport Commission. Definitely would be highly valuable to others in business or personal life.
Reg Brady, Operations and Maintenance Manager – Nanaimo Airport Commission. I think other groups may work through challenges and may not have a process to work through them
