Leadership Skills Series
Utilise everyday conversations to stimulate creativity, challenge thinking, reduce conflict and build loyalty among your team and key stakeholders.
Successful managers and leaders cannot rely on the traditional authority of the “command and control” culture to deliver outcomes. Increasing evidence suggests that force and directive behaviour does not lead to long term commitment. Instead, we need to foster relationships and utilise influence to build commitment and accountability in our teams. This requires a whole new leadership style – one focused around building engagement.
Everything we do as leaders involves communication – but research into how the brain functions suggests we may need to change how we use our communication skills. It’s not necessarily the flashy, highly visible leader that delivers the best results, but the leader whose conversational and questioning style elicits new thinking, fosters accountability, and builds commitment and passion.
Using a case study approach, this seminar illustrates the communication challenges managers encounter daily, and then suggests alternate approaches based on the latest research into the neurosciences. Participants will experiment with various conversational and questioning techniques to build trust and develop thinking.
