Leaders in GM: Speak-Up, Listen-Up Masterclass

18 June, 2019 - 09:30 to 17:00

Most organisations in Greater Manchester have taken for granted habits and implicit rules that influence how certain things do and don’t get talked about. Some people get heard more than others. Some people or groups are consciously, and more often unconsciously, excluded. This has an impact on decision making and staff engagement. Good ideas may never see the light of day. Harmful practices or behaviours may be overlooked.

HOUR Manchester

3 May 2019 - 15:28 by cheryl.mcalister

HOUR Manchester is an exciting new approach to bring together people across Manchester with an interest in mutual support, *Timebanking and community economies.

* Timebanking is a way of linking local people and organisations who can share their time and skills in a way where everyone is valued equally. Within a Timebanking model, no one is rich and no one is poor as we all have 24 hours each day and an hour is equally as valuable to everyone. 1 hour in = 1 hour back!
