DISRUPTIVE LEADERSHIP - the key for a rapidly shifting economy

Today it is about quick change, rapid change, exponential change. And to stay ahead of the game, you want to be the disrupter, rather than the one being disrupted.

Attendees will learn how to challenge the status quo and to ‘Dare to make a difference!’ by applying the PROfound Leadership Methodology.

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE – understand human behaviours and lead with positive influence

Successful people have the ability to understand human behaviours and connect with others at a personal and emotional level.

Attendees will learn how to take ownership of their own emotions, to enable them to positively influence others and to succeed in today’s busy and ever-changing environment.

MASTER THE ART OF COMMUNICATION - communicate with impact

Even though we communicate all day long, communication is not as simple as it seems, and what we say can easily be misunderstood. Therefore, effective communication is about the response we get.

Attendees will be provided with tools to build rapport and hold basic conversations with a clear message.

BUILDING RESILIENCE - cope and thrive in the face of challenges

Resilience enables us to cope with change, problems and stress.  It helps us to turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones and setbacks into comebacks.

Attendees will be empowered and inspired to maximise their own level of resilience required to respond positively to the pressures and demands in their personal and professional environment.

SELF-LEADERSHIP - being ahead of the game

Self-leadership is about knowing when and where to direct those efforts that will help you succeed. It is essential to gain an empowering mindset to take control of your own success and get the results you desire.

Attendees will learn the skills of pro-active task management and be equipped with prioritisation techniques, so they can successfully deal with change and handle workloads with more ease.

INSPIRATION IN LEADERSHIP - create an independent workforce

Great leaders inspire great teams. And great teams require a culture of employees being independent and motivated individuals, performing interdependently within their team.

Attendees will learn how to assist individuals to overcome their fears, step out of their comfort zone and take responsibility for their own actions.

In just one short session I was able to reset my thinking around conflict participation and resolution. From a management perspective his logic is easy to understand and relatable to teams. I highly recommend working with Martin.
