You’re on mute! - honing your online communication skills

Communication has changed, and it’s taken some getting used to. Remote working has meant we’ve all had to establish new norms for communicating, teamworking and collaborating. It’s more important to connect in new and different ways with colleagues and our friends and family.

Simon will explore some of the new norms you can adopt to help build trust in remote teams. Understanding the impact of remote working on others and how you can build successful remote working relationships.

Leaders Create the Weather - understanding impact on others

With over 75% of roles not invented yet, one of the greatest challenges to individuals and organisations is the development of relevant skills to keep apace with the needs of customers and markets. The good news is; you can start today. With such fast pace of change, the most effective strategy to ensure you’re ‘future ready’ is to equip yourself with the critical and creative thinking skills you’ll need to help you adapt and be agile regardless of the challenges you’ll face in your future career.

This practical, workshop will introduce some of the skills you'll need as either a future leader - or manager - supporting a team. You will gain important personal insight by completing a ‘mindset stocktake’ using the Leadership Circle Self Assessment. You will have the opportunity to explore some of these insights in smaller break out group activities. We invite you to take the self assessment now.

Connecting with Purpose - because purpose matters more than ever

Our experience of the last year has made us pause and question our ‘Why?’ on an individual and organisational level. Understanding your own purpose is probably the most important work you’ll do. When our purpose is aligned to the work of our organisation, we are more energised, focused and we achieve better results. When an organisation understands its purpose and all employees are aligned, that’s when we begin to see transformational results.

Russell will use the PrimeFocus™ framework to provide new perspective for thinking and challenging the status quo on an individual, team and organisation level. You will be guided through a practical activity in break out groups to help uncover insights around how aligned you feel to your organisation right now. It will encourage strategic thinking and give you the language to start a conversation around purposeful leadership, engagement and alignment which will have a profound effect on your own and your organisation’s performance. We invite you to complete the short self-assessment before the session to get the most out of the workshop.

You’re pushing my buttons - regain control when your values are challenged

The past 12 months has affected all of us in different ways; from bereavement, illness, career challenges, changing working practices, resiliency, mental health and so much more. Many report that they have been taking stock of what really matters; reassessing their values, mindset and behaviours.

Martin’s practical workshop will guide you through the process of understanding your values and the triggers that test those values - making the link between mindset and behaviour. You will explore a number of tactics to manage your values ‘hot buttons’ and your own emotional state and resiliency, resulting in a more purposeful and sustainable performance. To get the most from the discussions, we invite you to complete the short Personal Values assessment beforehand.
