This workshop has been well received as part of a Leadership Programme at one of the world’s best-known business schools as well as a Top Tier investment bank. It is a highly interactive and practical workshop exploring the enigma of ‘Presence’.
We begin by introducing a simple model outlining the elements required to achieve ‘Presence’. Practically, participants test out new behaviours using tools from a broad range of disciplines from the science of social psychology to the art of improvisation.
Participants learn How To:
- Be comfortable in their own skin
- Be noticed without speaking
- Be an inspiration
Understanding that hard work alone is not enough to be successful is a precourse requirement. If you want to raise your profile and get noticed, this is for you.
The How To Management Training programme is a highly experiential and practical programme designed for up to 6 Managers delivered over 5 months. During the programme, Managers learn How To:
- Motivate their team using situational leadership
- Distinguish between power and influence
- Unlock creativity and talent within their team
- Hold challenging conversations
Before the programme begins, Managers complete the Emotional Quotient Inventory to kick-start their self-awareness. The results are delivered by an EQ-I expert in a one-to-one coaching environment so that each Manager understands their unique management skill-set. Consequently, once the group-training programme begins, Managers are laser-focussed on their specific development needs.
Practically, Group-training is delivered at monthly intervals covering 3 hot topics:
- Management versus Leadership
- Challenging Conversations
- Coaching Skills
The programme design intentionally facilitates accountability, shared learning and relationship-building amongst the Manager peer group.
Holding crucial conversations is the hallmark of effective leadership: whether you are delivering a performance review, challenging a colleague or motivating a team. This programme challenges outdated yet universally applied habits like the blame game and the very popular right to be right.
Drawing on a breadth of science and art such as nonviolent communication, NLP theory as well as Transactional Analysis, participants learn How To:
- Disagree and maintain rapport
- Avoid the trap of emotional knee-jerk responses
- Set up conversations for success
- Strengthen professional relationships
The art is to speak up and be heard whilst keeping defensiveness at bay. This ensures regrets become a distant memory.
This workshop comes with a warning: attendance may cause positive change in all participants’ relationships.
