Well it’s February already and I am back in my office at Intepeople here in Nelson, New Zealand. I cannot tell you how good it is to be back, home is always a special place.
Some of you may already be aware that we are working in conjunction with the BNZ to bring their business clients a suite of workshops on people topics to help them better run their businesses.
First up is Leadership in 2016. Paul and I will be facilitating this together.
So this week I have been putting together our thoughts on what is shaping leadership in 2016.
I have been researching up a storm – HBR, DDI, Linkedin, Youtube, Monash best practise in large companies (Apple, Google, BP etc etc) – gathering stories from past experiences from both myself and Paul who has a wealth of great stories to share.
- Leadership can be hard to nail at the best of times so here are some of the topics we are considering…
- What is keeping current leaders awake at night?
- Are leaders born or made?
- What are they key behaviours of high profile successful leaders?
- The challenges of leading in these volatile and fast changing times
- How do leaders keep up with how ‘millennials’ think and work?
- What are the key behaviours of modern successful leaders?
I am also looking at how leadership styles can influence how the brain works using the SCARF model designed by David Rock.
Leadership is an interesting topic at the best of time – trying to summarise best practice in an hour is a real challenge.
I would welcome your thoughts on what is relevant for leaders in today’s working environment. What are the issues that your leaders face and how can we as HR professionals work with leaders to ensure we get the best out of our people.
