All organisations face a fast-changing future. Covid 19, Digitisation, AI, Big Data & Robotics are all posing huge challenges to our ways of organising and doing business. In today’s organisation there can be no more sacred cows. No longer can we allow people to feel inhibited by the boss or “political” corporate cultures. So, now more than ever, we need to empower people to speak their truths and share their ideas and creativity. We need to enjoy deep conversations at all levels of our organisations on what’s working, not working and the future. Tapping into the perspectives and creativity of all employees will become a key leadership skill. The ability to engage in powerful conversations will determine future organisation success and growth.
Trust & powerful conversations have never been more important in helping to shape our new world of work and our organisations. This Masterclass will introduce participants to some of the essential thinking and skills necessary for leaders to enable powerful conversations. Focusing primarily on the notion of “trust” it will provide practical perspectives and leadership actions.
The Masterclass will introduce participants to Mark and Peter’s 2 day programme: ‘Mastering Powerful Conversations for a Fast-Changing World’.
