MONDAY 26 NOVEMBER
Morning Emotional Intelligence & Authenticity
In this session, participants will examine the importance of emotional intelligence
(EI) versus the more usually measured IQ, and explore the four pillars of EI: self-awareness, self-management, awareness of others and relationship management.
They will examine each pillar and how it has a vital role to play in supporting the
leadership approach that will offer sustainable, successful leadership to high
performing teams, and look at what leaders need to do in order to develop these
four skills of emotional intelligence.
Afternoon Building and Maintaining High Performing Teams
Participants will explore the following factors that create high performing teams:
• What matters most and why
• Are psychologically safe
• Worry less about harmony than performance
• Maintain a balance between technical and social competence
• Absolute confidence in each other’s ability
• Have access to organisational structures and resources that facilitate teamwork
• Progress focused
• Interact face to face frequently
• Know how to have a difficult conversation
TUESDAY 27 NOVEMBER
Morning Integrity & Ethical Decisions
The group will explore making decisions based on a principled conscience
approach, a social conscience approach and a rule compliant approach. It
looks at meta-ethical decisions which are ethically sound without being bound to a single ethical approach – and at some practicalexamples, some ethical dilemmas to test decision making.
Afternoon Political Savvy
This is a highly interactive session, designed to equip and encourage individuals to steer a course around organisational barriers and engage actively in the political sphere in an ethical and systematic way.
