Upskill Hour Presents: Creating Workplaces with Heart
June 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
About the presenter:
Dave Burt is the founder of SALT Sport and Life Training. SALT began in 2015 and is now the leading provider of high quality, interactive education sessions into sporting clubs and businesses.
Dave was a successful sportsman in his day as well as a teacher, coach, counsellor and Chaplain. Before forming SALT, Dave attended 7 sporting clubs after they had lost people to suicide. The recurring message in each club was, ‘We never saw it coming’. This led Dave to begin SALT so that people could have these essential conversations long before a tragedy occurred.
Since then Dave has co-designed dozens of courses around culture and leadership, wellbeing and mental health, respect and equality and far more.
These courses are highly successful in businesses because they build upon the principles of sport in a way that resonates and makes sense to the average Australian worker.
What will be covered?
If a sporting club or a sportsperson is described as having heart, what does that mean? It means that they have courage, they go in hard for the ball, they are dedicated towards being successful. But having heart has another meaning too. It means that we care for each other, we create environments where people can be vulnerable and know that they will receive support. Dave will explore the powerful potential that exists when we address both aspects of having heart, and will guide us in how to get the balance right.
