Challenging Leaders

"None of us is smarter than all of us"

Featured Masterclass - Courageous Conversations - 11th December

Courageous Conversations

A Masterclass in getting the most out of your people

by Darran Robinson

Over the past 30 years Darran has helped organisations grow through effectively implementing strategy through their people. Working with a wide variety of organisations, from the world’s biggest retailers to fast growth SMEs, one of Darran’s observations is that “the problem with strategy is not in the thinking; it’s in the doing”. A challenge for many leaders is facing up to the hard stuff, and knowing how to confront behaviours and decisions which are holding back performance, in a constructive way which gets results.

At the conclusion of the morning you will appreciate:

• Why preparation is essential before delivering a message
• The importance of choosing the right time to speak up
• How to stay objective during the discussion
• How to encourage people to find a solution to the issue

Some comments from delegates at previous sessions:

“Such an important subject: really made me think how I can improve performance by tackling tough issues well.”

“I’m a bit embarrassed to say so – but this helped me hugely in my personal life as well as my work life. Talk about getting quick results!”

“Loved it! Very entertaining and energetic. Enjoyed the interactive elements, which helped us learn a lot from each other.”

Each Masterclass starts promptly at 8.30am, followed by a peer group taster & then lunch at 2pm………and a complimentary ‘So What?’ session 3 weeks later.

The ‘So What?’ sessions are designed to really embed what you took from the Masterclass in a facilitated, ‘sharing your learning with other delegates’ environment.
