This live, interactive seminar will take the theory and reflection from the seminar: Leadership in a Digitally Enabled and Data Driven World and start to head deeper into the actual method we use for transformation and nurturing modern leadership from the inside out. We’ll also take a look at some of the techniques and exercises that support our ability to accelerate change in ourselves as well as those around us. This session is focused on the application of theory and method into our daily leadership practice, so all leaders should be prepared to experiment, be open and take a journey into the new world of leadership – as a set of mindsets rather than capabilities.

Topics that will be examined include:

  • Review the power of mindset shift to drive behaviour change
  • Deep dive into the framework supporting leadership in a digital and data driven world
  • Experiment with applying the framework to your own leadership style: noticing strengths and development areas as well as accelerators and brakes
  • Learn some of the techniques we can use for ourselves and others to motivate leadership transformation at a mindset level
  • Begin to develop your own unique modern leadership pathway as well as well as take away valuable techniques and worksheets to enable shift around you

Who is it designed for?

This seminar is designed for civil service leaders: including ministers, directors, senior managers and senior change and transformation practitioners. The seminar includes some theory but focusses on the practical application of mindset shift in our own leadership practice and that of other leaders around us.

This is a seminar designed for leaders who want to accelerate their own transformation and maturity as an effective and successful modern leader.

How will you benefit from attending?

Adopting the right mental model for leadership in a digital age is no longer a choice, but an imperative. This seminar provides a deep understanding of what this looks like, with the opportunity to experiment and experience what this looks like for you and your own leadership mindset and practice. The seminar will be delivered through the lens of a framework used internationally across the private and public sector for leadership mindset shift and creating people-centred digital transformation
