Monday 12 Feb 2024 - Workshop 1 Personal Leadership 

Understanding who you are, owning your story and increased awareness of what drives your behaviour is critical to being a leader. Get clearer on your own personal brand, have techniques to harness stress and optimize your own energy to be in the best state to be an authentic and inclusive leader.

How do we as leaders build high performance. In this workshop we will explore the building blocks of high performing teams, the challenges and opportunities of leading teams, including  working virtually or in a hybrid environment. Understanding our own communication style and how we flex to meet the needs of others and build motivation.

Monday 25 March 2024 - Session 3 Being a coach through change

Develop your competence and confidence in supporting others to step up and reach their potential. In this workshop you will hone your communication skills to build confidence and competence in being a coach, delegating and having check -in conversations. We will also explore the conversations needed to support people through change.

Monday 15 April 2024 - Session 4 Leaning into Courageous conversations

Having the courage to have the conversations that matter is critical as a leader. You will have frameworks to structure and practice conversations you find more challenging and an understanding of how we can reduce resistance and partner with others to find a way forward.
