Public Webinars

Building capacity for our new reality – Come join us!

During lockdown last year we initiated a series of high-impact, content-rich, webinars designed to add real business value to our clients and wider community. We offered these on a complimentary basis and they became a very popular and convenient way to access the ideas of international thought leaders and leave with practical tools to support working in the new virtual world.

Since then, we have received numerous requests to pick them up again as well as run these sessions in-house for clients. So that’s what we’re doing!  Each Wednesday morning at 09:00 we’ll bring you cutting-edge ideas and content that will support you along your own learning journey. Attend as many as you like and feel free to share these with anyone you feel will find value. 

We invite you to register for one or more of our webinars. Feel free to share the details with others you think may benefit, including young leaders. These sessions are also available in-house.

Webinar Multipliers

HOW THE BEST LEADERS MAKE EVERYONE SMARTER

LIZ WISEMANS MULTIPLIERS™ LEADERSHIP

09:00-09:55  – Wednesday, 29th September 2021

We’ve all had experience with two dramatically different types of leaders. The first are Diminishers, leaders who drain intelligence, energy and capability, and who need to be seen as the smartest person in the room. The second are the Multipliers, leaders who use their own intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them. When these leaders walk into a room, light bulbs go off, ideas flow and problems get solved. The world needs more Multipliers, especially now, when leaders are expected to do more with far less.

In this introductory session, you will be exposed to Liz Wiseman’s Multipliers™ theory, taking away valuable insights that can be immediately used back at work. This is an ideal opportunity for any leader to get key insights into how to foster inclusivity, attract and retain talent, and achieve superior business results by leveraging the capacity of the entire team. 

Webinars Inclusive Meetings

BUILDING CULTURE THROUGH INCLUSIVE MEETINGS

DE BONO SIX THINKING HATS

09:00-09:55  – Wednesday 6th October 2021

Doubtlessly, meetings take up a huge amount of executive and leader time, however, are leaders really getting the maximum value and participation of all the people in the room. Bias, distractions, new ways of work and loud voices can easily drown out the contribution of others, resulting in a less than optimal result and low levels of buy in. According to Harvard Business Review, one of the best ways to build an inclusive culture is to start with inclusive meetings.  

This introductory webinar will share a powerful, proven and practical framework for ensuring diversity and inclusion in meetings. This is ideal for leaders who need to get the best contribution from all team members. Based on de Bono’s parallel thinking concepts, you will leave with a framework that can be easily and immediately applied in your very next meeting.

THINK ON YOUR FEET™

09:00-09:55  – Wednesday 13th October 2021

In the high-pressure, time-scarce knowledge economy of today, effective communication is critical. Add to this the fact that right now most of us are forced to communicate digitally and you’ll see why the capacity to communicate is considered a foundational competence.

In this short, high-value session, you’ll get a glimpse into the power of this internationally acclaimed communication framework which gives participants the tools to structure complex ideas clearly, get to the point, be more persuasive and respond on the spot. You’ll leave with tools that we guarantee will have an immediate impact and take you one step closer to communicating with clarity, brevity, and impact.

Many managers, however, have not had the opportunity to develop the skill set required to manage remote teams and are struggling with the transition. Fortunately, there are some quick, relatively easy steps that managers can take to support and motivate remote team members whilst improving engagement, productivity, and motivation.  In this session you will discover seven steps to running a successful virtual team, and what it takes to ensure teams are engaged, present and committed.

I want to express my heartfelt thanks for the time and energy you spent with our team. I often find myself ‘learning’ because of unplanned encounters and feel like I have taken a giant leap in terms of this growth since our encounter. I am extremely grateful to you.

It has been the most beneficial one-day seminar that I have ever attended. We all have the workbook permanently on our desk as a reference manual.

Best course that I have done in 10 years (if not ever).
Grayson Vollenhoven

Practicing the skills being taught during the course ensured that it did not remain only theory. It provided a safe environment to learn and experiment with the new skills so that I am now confident to apply it. I am now comfortable, and even look forward to, presenting.
Mr. Lourens
Mediclinic

You’re able to apply the learnings immediately and find you listen to other people’s presentations, speeches, etc. in a new way! The training is certainly worth the price and this was the first training course that I really felt I could apply immediately in my day‐to‐day work, without too much effort.
Anne Potgieter
Avon (Pty) Ltd

The facilitation by Kirsty was excellent. The course was one of the few practical “training sessions” and hence added a lot more value than traditional training sessions. The concepts that were taught are easy to understand and put to use!
Muneer Omar

The presenters passion for the content was compelling. The course was genuinely interesting and provides a valuable structure for communication.
