Engaging Leadership: maximising the potential of your people



Apr 29, 2020 1000 - 1140




A Master Class from Professor Beverly Alimo-Metcalfe, MSc, MBA, PhD, CPsychol, FBPsS.   Beverly is Emeritus Professor of Leadership Studies at the University of Leeds, and a founding Director of Real World Group. Her passion is for the ethical application of ‘inclusive’ leadership at all levels in organisations, and supporting individuals and organisations to become more engaging, innovative, collaborative and effective.

Beverly will provide an overview of Real World Group’s research into the day-to-day leadership behaviours that have been shown to significantly enhance performance, innovation, collaboration, readiness for change and reduce stress – all of which are essential in an era of reduced resources and increased demands.  Beverly will outline the research, and describe its application across public sector organisations over the past few years to create real culture change and enhancement. There will be points of reflection during the session for participants to consider how they could adapt their own style to be more engaging with their teams.

There will then follow a Q & A sesion.
