Sharpening Your Interpersonal Skills (SYIS)

One of the significant challenges we face on a day-to-day basis is working with others, often from different cultures and with different personalities. 

SYIS is designed to provide Christian workers and Christ followers everywhere with the essential biblical knowledge, attitudes and skills for relating well with co-workers, family members, friends and those from other cultures.

This training can be delivered either:

  • Through a week long on-site workshop
  • Through a more flexible weekend encounter tailored to meet the specific needs of a congregation
  • Online

SYIS Online is ideal for any Christ follower who wishes to truly become more loving and effective in their relationships with others. It is highly interactive and participants work and practice together in pairs, small groups, and as a whole group. The best methods of adult education are utilised so that maximum learning takes place.
