Target Audience: Leadership
Organisational psychologists suggest that we live in a VUCA world: a world that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambigious. This can be painfully felt in the workplace. The world around us moves quickly and we often find ourselves on the receiving end of changes that are difficult for others. This series of three workshops draws from positive orgainsational scholarship, appreciative enquiry and strengths-based leadership to offer practical concepts and tools.
Day 1: Concepts of Change
There are ways of thinking about personal and organisational change that allow us to navigate times of transition more easily. This session looks at the process of change, what makes it difficult and how can we best position ourselves and those we lead.
Day 2: Communication for Change
Leading and Working with others in the midst of organisational change requires significant communication skills. This session addresses four key conversations required during times of change, which sustain trust, maintain hope, inspire action and allow reflection.
Day 3: Character and Change
While organisational life may change around us, we can stay sane and resilient by remaining true to our core commitments. This session looks at who we are when we are at our best and how we can bring these strengths of character to bear even in stressful periods of change.
