Session one: 13 October – Leadership and me
This session is focussed on understanding leadership and what that means for you. We will explore ‘why’ leadership using Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle of Why, understand the difference between leadership and management competencies and why we need both as great leaders, and learn more about authentic leadership and who we are as authentic leaders.
Session two: 27 October – Understanding people and why this is important for leadership
In this session we refresh on social styles, explore our team using social styles, and how we can use these valuable insights to lead our people well. We also explore Herzbergs theory on motivators and maintenance factors, so we can get the best out of our people. We finish with the exploration of the importance of time with our team.
Session three: 10 November – Understanding the employee lifecycle, team dynamics and leadership connection
Our final session explores the employee lifecycle and engages some group discussion on the stages of the lifecycle and the leadership we demonstrate throughout, a look at the good performance line and how we set our people and our team up for success. Finally we explore team dynamics in forming/storming/norming/performing and use this to guide us around where we should focus as a leader.
Session one: 24 November – Building rapport and trust for effective communication
This session is focussed on building rapport, engagement and trust as a foundation for meaningful relationships and meaningful conversations. We also refresh on the feelings wheel, and how feelings can impact ‘states’ for conversations, as well as the different ‘states’ that we sometimes find ourselves in during communication (transactional analysis) and the state that will make communication more effective.
Session two: 8 December – Meaningful leadership conversations
This session takes our focus to leadership conversations, specifically performance objectives, development goals and the power of feedback. We truly can make these conversations more meaningful, more individualised, more positive, and doing that will make those conversations as meaningful as all the other conversations we have.
Session three: 15 December – Structuring our feedback and conversations for success
Sometimes we know what we need to say, we just need some structure to ensure our conversations, feedback, direction is received well. This session refreshes us on the EEC Model of feedback, and the BOLD model for preparing for the tougher conversations, to ensure that we are delivering them in a meaningful way.
