Professional Development

Navigating Boundaries and Difficult Conversations

Session 1 (Morning):  Personal and Professional Boundaries 

Join us for an enlightening workshop that delves into the intricate balance of physical, mental, and emotional boundaries. Establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries is crucial for the safety and respect of both you and your clients. In community services, where the lines between professional and personal lives often intersect, it’s easy for boundaries to become blurred. The very qualities that make you a compassionate and nurturing service provider can also leave you susceptible to blurring, especially when coupled with fatigue.

Session 2 (Afternoon): Managing Difficult Conversations

In our fast-paced and interconnected world, conversations have the remarkable ability to shift from mere exchanges of words to full-blown conflicts. These conflicts can arise unexpectedly, catching us off guard and leaving us grappling with how to respond effectively. This half-day workshop equips you with essential skills to navigate these challenging dialogues with confidence and grace.


Morning Session – Debbie Deasy

Afternoon Session – Angharad Candlin

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
