"Money doesn't solve money problems.
If you can't work with a small amount of money you won't be able to work
with a bigger amount of money and will repeat the same mistakes"
Financial Confidence Workshops
The Financial Confidence workshops have proven to be exceptionally valuable for lower and middle income employees to change behaviours and the ingrained belief that; 'All I need to change my circumstances, is more money.'
This is a holistic workshop that focuses on basic economic literacy, financial insight, awareness and management. The content is delivered in a practical way that inspires hope and gives tools to change current personal financial behaviour.
These workshops are highly interactive, only 4 hours long and for a maximum of 15 people per session to encourage trust and interaction. Sessions can be adapted to deal with specific issues like study debt, blacklisting, money and relationships etc.
If you are happy with the workshops financial institutions are offering, then this much deeper, broader and more interactive workshop is not for you.
Money and conflict often go hand-in-hand and the majority of strikes in South Africa are about money. However, demands are often unrealistic and negotiations lack planning, preparation and financial knowledge. This gives rise to protracted and often destructive actions that have a negative impact on all involved.
Aligned with the latest Accord on Collective Bargaining and Industrial Action, and the Code of Good Practice, these workshops aim to help Shop Stewards and Union members become more aware of all the different factors they need to consider to constructively take negotiations beyond the 'bread and butter' demands.
