Principals play a vital role to promote appropriate, reasonable, fair, respectful and courteous behaviour in the workplace at all times. Subject matter expert and facilitator, Michelle Bihary, will take you on a 2-day journey with theoretically informed, practical solutions and strategies. Michelle’s approach can be implemented quickly and immediately to provide tangible results. 

Her ability to engage with people and create psychological safety within a workplace environment is her zone of genius. Michelle has in-depth knowledge and extensive experience, allowing her to bring not just presence but power to her work. 

Michelle’s areas of expertise include the application of the latest advances in neuroscience and neuroplasticity, understanding of psychological safety, emotional intelligence, leadership, self-leadership, and workplace culture.


SCA Projects

Taking this unique opportunity together, Principals from across Australia and New Zealand will discuss the SCA Thrive at Work survey status with Curtin University, our Strata Respect Taskforce and campaign work. Furthermore, discussions will be had surrounding the current challenges with electric vehicles following a state of play document being pulled together by the SCA National Advocacy and Policy team.

The program will be held from 10am to 3pm over Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 November. Accompanied with casual evening events from Sunday 20 November around Cairns with key peers and our national partners, this event is one you won’t want to miss.

We welcome you to gain these learnings over a tailored 2 day program at the Crystalbrook Riley overlooking the water in Cairns and earn up to 6 CPD points in the process.

Please note this event is open to SCA Strata Management Principal members only.
