Many of us avoid having those difficult conversations we know we need to have. Whether they are at work or at home we can go to great lengths to avoid the upset and discomfort we fear they will create. Knowing what to say is only part of the challenge, we also need to think about HOW to have these challenging but ultimately courageous conversations and this workshop will consider the key elements of conducting these in a positive and constructive way.

Understanding what’s happening in our brain when we are in ‘fight or flight’ mode can have a huge impact on our ability to regulate our own behaviour and the behaviour of others.

Working from home has increased exponentially over the past months and with the Government’s recent announcement, many people are set to be working from home for at least the next six months.  This is now becoming embedded as an effective permanent approach rather than a temporary solution to a crisis.  There are huge benefits to working in this way and in this webinar, we will explore these and look at social and psychological contracts, maintaining contact with others and working collaboratively.

As leaders we are always looking for new and creative ways to help our teams think and work innovatively. So, What’s in a story?

“Stories are the secret reservoirs of values; change the stories that individuals or nations live by and tell themselves and you change the individuals and the nations’

Ben Okri – OBE & Booker Prize Winner

In this session we explore our favourite stories, what they mean to us and how we can use them to articulate and better understand our values. We also look at 6 types of story, crafting our own to create our own sense of identity and help define our approach to Leadership and inspire others.
