Conversation is a springboard for change, for transformation. Questions are a powerful tool. Quality conversations happen by using powerful questions. The real struggle is about how to get people to the table whose voices haven't been heard very often... these are conversations
that matter."

(Authentic Leadership; David Irvine & Jim Reger)

To be listened to is a striking experience, partly because it is so rare. When another person is totally with you - leaning in, interested in every word, eager to empathize - you feel known and understood. People open up when they know there really being listened to; they expand; they have more presence. They feel safer and more secure as well, and trust grows"

(Co-active Coaching;
Whitworth, Etal)

A Journey Inspiring trustworthy relationships

Conversations is an opportunity to have directed authentic dialogue about relevant life issues surrounding social and emotional realms. Small focused peer groups meet to tackle a conversation question looking at both the impact it is having on culture as well as personally.  Participants reflect on their own personal journey and generate new possibilities and desired outcomes.

The Conversations program is available for females from grade 6 through to University.  It is presented as an independent learning module or multiple sessions. Participants are then given the opportunity to mentor and encourage younger women through creating video clips and acting as small group leaders for younger peer groups.

Current module examples:

My world

• How media shapes the way I see myself
• Healthy body image

My friends

• Girl to Girl: Who do I trust?
• Girl Wars

Myself on line

• Keeping safe in a world without boundaries
• Staying authentic
