Next W'shop: 3rd June “Practical, positive leadership” series (3/4). NSWNMA W'loo

Kind words

Here's what Sharon says about being part of the four month Practical Positive Leadership Program we facilitated in Sydney this year! 

NSWNMA "Influential Thought Leader" workshop - Gymea


All the areas were interesting and informative. One of the best workshops I have attended. Gained a lot.

Dot and Tiffany are very inspiring. Lessons learned are “achievable” not unrealistic, if we choose

Wonderful presentations. Empowering and giving great strategies to be an effective thoughtful leader.

New ideas of thinking from the facilitators Dot and Tiffany

All the sessions were informative and thought provoking. Relevant to my role as a leader

Presenters are AWESOME. Well done 😊

Excellent! Worth every minute

MLHD Wagga Wagga Participants


One of the most positive, inspiring education days that I have attended in 30plus years! So much conveyed, so much to think about and so much to take back. Looking forward to being a leader. 

Dot and Tiff were fantastic and engaging presenters. I haven’t been to a course that I’ve enjoyed as much as this. Informative, applicable and entertaining all the way through. 

Presentation was amazing. Excellent use of humor.  


MLHD Griffith Participants



Brilliant day – Each session provoked thoughts and ways to be a great leader in nursing and in LIFE!

Excellent, innovative, interactive leadership course. The facilitators showed their own leadership skills through presentation and organisation of course.

The interactive approach was engaging, welcoming and supportive. It built confidence and self-awareness.

The chosen member appreciated the comments and requested to have the original post- it notes. We will be trying the “ball of wool” concept shortly. I am sure this will not only be fun but it will open their eyes to what they do so well, working together

 Informative, very interactive workshop, much positive energy between Dot and Tiffany. 



 Thank you so much Dot and Tiffany for your generous effort to improve our lives. 

Influential Thought Leader Workshop Sydney


I enjoyed this workshop. Learned so much. Lessons were interesting. Lecturers were “cool” and made me feel special. Met Dot Yam again after 27 years

This topic, “The influential thought leader at work” was really good. I learnt more skills/knowledge to take care of myself so that I can care others. I will look forward to booking another education in this group in the future

Always a great workshop from Dot and Tiffany

Excellent sessions from both presenters. Lots of audience participation/activities in different forms. Thank you for the session

Really enjoyed the different qualities that Dot and Tiffany brought to the presentation

Keep inspiring and influencing many others

Today was well rounded, informative and interesting. I would recommend fellow staff to attend

I enjoyed the style and delivery of the workshop. I liked the examples used

Fabulous day. Thank you so much

Lead Inspired Change Melbourne


I enjoyed the whole day. The sessions flowed, Dot and Tiffany work so well together.

I had high expectations of the day having heard Tiffany and Dot at the ACN National Nurses Forum but the day was even better than I expected

Amazing very fun and interactive workshop Extremely valuable. It was easy to speak up and join conversations or give my opinion.

I love the whole study day. Excellent. Very inspiring

This course is not just for work but for life skills. Enjoyed the workshop. Kept it very real

Great day! Dot and Tiffany were amazing!!

Thank you! An engaging and fun day. I learned some new skills and reinforced already learned concepts. Well run. Lots of activities to break up the day

Dot and Tiffany were very engaging and knowledgeable 

Katie - Manager Northern Area Health


“Our team was working in silos, there was no connection or communication, I have no idea how to bring them together! Since starting this workshop series, teamwork has been turned around in a most positive way! A miracle!” 

Participant from a public hospital


”I was so run down and about to leave nursing, feeling negative and unsupported. Since this program, I feel alive and hopeful and I actually enjoy coming to work!” 

Manager of an engineering company


 "This weekend workshop with the understanding of different personalities, their gifts and preferences has been so valuable and instrumental in reducing conflict and increasing productivity in our team! Very happy with the result!" 


Member and participant NSWNMA


"I feel so resurred that the tools and strategies discussed are achievable as they are sustainable, I feel so much more confident to go back to my team and implement them!"

Jackie - NSW


"Excellent, well executed sessions and very positive in the mannerism used with both facilitators conducting the course – towards each other and towards us!" 

Kate Adams - Manager Professional Team New South Wales Nurses and Midwives’ Association


"Dot Yam has been presenting leadership focused courses (as well as others) for the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association for many years and has always received excellent evaluations from our members. 

Dot is an extremely dynamic presenter who engages with her audience to empower them with the necessary skills they need to lead in their workplace. I highly commend Dot as a wonderful guide and teacher, she is self-motivated and energetic and well able to impart a positive message to both large and small groups."

Sue Sinclair Director ZEST Health Strategies


“Dot Yam facilitated workshops for hospital nursing and allied health managers to support the development of effective teams.  Effective leadership and team work supported Managers implement change and work productively in highly stressed clinical environments.  The sessions were practical, fun and interactive which helped the staff get to know each other outside of the clinical setting”.

Cardiac Services - Gosford Hospital.


"Extremely good session, light hearted but full of useful, practical information”

ACN Leadership Workshop Brisbane


 Absolutely excellent pair of facilitators with wads of information and ability to engage with the attendees

It is helpful to attend a leadership session that focused on ‘personal’ change as inspiration, not theoretical change

Both presenters are ‘real’. Very informative and enjoyable (more than I expected). Real life situations and tools. Authentic. Activities engaged all – the workshop was fun

You are a powerhouse team Dot and Tiffany, thank you for facilitating so well and making the concepts relatable for everyone

Thank you. Today has opened my eyes and allowed me to take a breath. It will all be OK

It was just wonderful!!! Such engaging, friendly presenters who have a wealth of knowledge and experience around leadership. Thankyou kindly ladies!

Learned how to find my 'professional voice' and not get caught in the drama triangle VERY INTERESTING!!

I’m inspired to bring more joy into the workplace, hold dance/movement sessions for staff and clients alike. I’d like to share core concepts with peers through education – be the model (inspiring)

It was great! The time went by so fast! So good!
