Self-Leadership: Group Leadership
Leadership, good and bad is currently centre stage. Not since the world wars, have leaders had to make decisions about a global issue at high speed, using partial and conflicting information and within the high anxiety of an emergency. The difference in our time is that it is done in the glare of social media – we are in a time of high visibility and far-reaching communications.
Mistakes are public and can be costly:
“Dr Catherine Calderwood, Scotland’s chief medical officer resigned after making two trips to her second home during the coronavirus lockdown”.
6 April 2020.
“Coronavirus: Outcry after Trump suggests injecting disinfectant as treatment”. 24 April 2020
Good leadership can go overlooked. The Guardian asked:
“Are female leaders more successful at managing the coronavirus crisis?” 25 April 2020
Systems thinking reminds us that what we see on the global stage is also happening at the local level. What might be the impact on your work and in your wider organisation or community? One of the key things that is important about systems and the fact that we are all connected, is that individual contributions can also create change.
Perhaps you are considering what you might do after the pandemic subsides and how you can make a difference. In these unprecedented and volatile circumstances, there will be many opportunities.
The virtual (via Zoom) half-day young leaders workshop Self Leadership: Group Leadership introduces you to the Tavistock approach to leadership and how these ideas can transform the way you work and how you can create.
In the workshop, we help you reflect, with others, on your work performance and how you are present in your work or student environment, particularly now when so many of us are working virtually. This highly interactive and reflective space allows you to explore these and other questions in a safe space. The goal of the workshop is to help you become a better version of yourself.
The fee for the workshop is £50
