Flexible, Contextual Leadership


Course Description

Recorded Webinar
Presenters: Ross McIntosh & Annie Gascoyne

What you will learn

In this 1-day workshop, learn about how to develop and coach leaders to be more able to guide flexible organisations.

This workshop aims to introduce you to key concepts for understanding leaders’ roles in creating flexible organisations and supporting flexible employees.

The workshop will explore opportunities and challenges leaders may face, for themselves, in their contexts, and techniques for helping them to move forward in an authentic and flexible way.

There are hundreds of leadership models out there. We know that by introducing leaders to contextual behavioural science they can call upon the skills, whatever their seniority or status, to enable them to respond to emerging situations in a way that carries personal authenticity and meaning, as well as enhancing their own vitality and effectiveness.

Who is this module for?

This workshop is for people who may be interested in facilitating greater flexibility in the workplace. Participants should have attended Module 1 or similar, and would benefit from having attended Modules 2 and 3.
