These seminars have been developed to support leaders, such as Heads of School, Deputy and Associate Deans and business unit directors/managers, in this change environment.
They focus on practical strategies and techniques to increase confidence and capability to successfully lead people through change. Participants will be provided with information, frameworks and toolkits to help them to recognise and understand both their own response to change and that of their staff, and also practical tips for facilitating the psychological process that people go through as they come to terms with change.
In times of change, work groups with good leadership and morale do better than teams with poor leadership and poor morale. There are some people leadership skills that all leaders should know about.
Dr Peter Cotton is an organisational and clinical psychologist with research in the area of organisational health and in particular, key drivers of staff morale, and how they impact on service delivery and general staff well-being.
What do we say, how do we respond to uncertainty? What can and can't you control? How do we manage ourselves through the tricky terrain of change?
Tony Newport is highly experienced in supporting and counselling people experiencing stress in the workplace.
This session has been developed to help you in your leadership role, to gain insights and provide you with tools to support positive self-management and constructive strategies when faced with strong reactions to change.
We will identify a range of strategies to maximise the power of the brain to respond constructively (and support others to do the same).
There will be a focus on thinking patterns that support or inhibit healthy responses to change – and a discussion about how leaders can ask quality questions to support team members undergoing a change process.
