Courageous Conversations

Courageous Conversations

This Program is conducted as either a half or full-day session and is customised to the organisation’s needs.

Do you find:

  • You or your team members shy away from challenging conversations
  • A lack of robust discussion is hampering progress
  • The conflict goes underground because issues that need discussing are side-stepped

If you do, you’re not alone. People avoid tough conversations for many reasons. The consequences for individual relationships, team dynamics and organisational outcomes are significant.

In an ever-changing world, with shifting expectations and increasing demands, achieving sustainable outcomes requires the ability to step up and into difficult and yet, courageous conversations. Skilfully navigating these conversations is both a mixture of art and science.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • What gets in the way of healthy, constructive conversations
  • How to step up and into conversations that are hard and uncomfortable
  • The three core ingredients for courageous conversations to have an impact and get results
  • Skills and techniques you can use with your team to elevate how the team communicates with each other

Driving Decisions Program

Driving Decisions Program

Do you find:

  • Bias, assumptions and expectations get in the way of good decision making
  • You’re wasting time in endless meetings where no decisions are made
  • It hard to get stakeholder buy-in and commitment to decisions
  • Your organisation or team’s decision-making processes are ineffective and inefficient

If so, then this program is for you.

This program helps leaders secure better decisions, more sustained progress, greater team engagement and stakeholder buy-in.  Drawing on behavioural economic and neuroscience principles, you’ll learn how to apply a tailored decision-making framework and process to diverse circumstances, and create the environment conducive to progressive decision making.

A key part of advanced decision making is knowing how you make decisions. There’s only one assessment tool in the world that helps you understand that. It’s called the Lectical® Decision Making Assessment, and Michelle is one of the few accredited practitioners able to use this tool. For further details, read more about the Lectical Decision Making Assessment

If you’d like to hear more about Michelle’s thoughts on decision making see her interview from The CEO Institute.

Thriving Through Change Program

Thriving Through Change Program

Do you find:

  • It hard to motivate yourself or your team in times of uncertainty
  • You want to be better equipped to build resilience, change readiness and adaptability in yourself or your team
  • The rate of progress when responding to changing environments is too slow or ineffective
  • You are seeking an approach, rooted in tried and tested methods, so you can more skilfully navigate change

Change is everywhere, which means that knowing how to position yourself to adapt, respond and thrive in a complex, ever-changing working world isn’t just an option, it is essential.

Conducted in a group setting, the Thriving Through Change program is designed to help leaders and team members find ways to positively navigate their way through the uncertainty. To do this, each person needs to understand what is going on for them psychologically, cognitively, emotionally and physiologically. By gaining insight into these elements, individuals are better able to reflect on and respond to changing circumstances.

While the program’s approach is underpinned by science, the course activities are practical so that the individual walks away with a toolkit to help them thrive through change.

Change Leadership Masterclass

Change Leadership Masterclass

This program is conducted in a group setting and is tailored to the specific needs of each organisation.  

Do you find:

  • You want to achieve greater engagement and buy-in from stakeholders and employees
  • You need a deeper understanding of how humans react and respond to change
  • You want to elevate your ability (and the capability of your leaders) to secure progress by being equipped with the behavioural and leadership skills to best challenge, inspire and engage others during change
  • You seek better insights into the tools, methodologies and approaches that underpin successful change programs

Today’s organisational environment is complex and ambiguous. It is also constantly changing as it responds to both internal and external forces that drive change. Leaders need to understand how to lead in such a dynamic environment, by being equipped to lead themselves and then others with an adaptive, consciously constructed and responsive approach.

For leaders wanting to achieve greater engagement and buy-in from stakeholders and employees, this masterclass will give them an understanding of how humans react to change, along with practical tools to influence outcomes, drive sustainable behavioural change and secure desired organisational objectives.

Please get in touch to discuss this program and the customised options available.
