Jeanette Long, leading trainer and coach, to visit Limestone Coast
20th June 2022
The Limestone Coast Women in Ag Network will host Jeanette Long, trainer and coach who is passionate about developing people skills in agriculture, for an Effective Conversations workshop on 29 July at Millicent.
Jeanette will deliver an interactive workshop that gives you insights into why you can communicate with some members of your farm team or family members and not others, exploring strategies to achieve effective communication. The workshop will examine communication styles, effects of stress on communication, practical tips for working in teams and running meetings, develop your confidence as a team member and identify the skills you bring to a group.
Jeanette Long is a Director and Facilitator, Trainer and Coach for Ag Consulting Co. She is well known and respected for her focus on developing people skills in agriculture. Jeanette delivers a range of training programs, manages projects as well as coaching individuals across Australia and New Zealand. She assists organisations and farm families with succession, strategic and business planning.
“We’re very excited to host Jeanette Long in the Limestone Coast”, said MacKillop Group CEO, Meg Bell. “Good communication is one of the key skills for success in life and building resilience, being able to have highly experienced and respected workshop presenter, Jeanette Long, in the region is a great opportunity to improve your communication skills. As communication always involves more than one person we’re encouraging women to bring along members of their wider team, such as work colleagues, family members and partners”.
The Limestone Coast Women in Ag Network (LCWiAN) is a network for women in the agriculture industry in the Limestone Coast to communicate with and support each other in both a social and a professional capacity, building strong connectedness in the region.
