PEOPLE-CENTRED LEADERSHIP

Develop the leadership knowledge, skills and confidence that enable you to build a high performing organisation by fully engaging your people.

Bristol workshop Workplace Inovation

Leadership Kickstart Workshop, full of fresh thinking and interaction
Bristol: 09.30 for 10.00, Wednesday, 26th June to 16.00, Thursday, 27th June 2019


Our immersive workshop shows you how to lead, engage and transform your team, department and organisation.

I can see a difference also in the two people that have been in this course and I can see how they are keen to see that change to be replicated within the business. For me it has exceeded all expectations, probably gone beyond the boundaries of where I thought it would go, it goes right under the skin of the business. I am happy that we are now at the other side of it, that it’s made a big difference.

After participating in this workshop you will gain a practical understanding of how emotionally intelligent leadership can help you connect with your people.

You will have gained fresh insights into how effective leaders engage and empower others to use and develop their skills, knowledge and creativity in building high performing organisations.

And you will be working on your personal action plan for changing your organisation and improving your own leadership skills.

You’ll also work together as a community with emerging leaders from other organisations.

. . . and then choose to continue towards an ILM leadership qualification!

You can also choose to take things further at your own pace, leading to your ILM Level 5 Certificate in Leadership.

Our state-of-the-art Fresh Thinking Labs platform provides you with action-focused knowledge, films and practical tools to help you become a truly effective leader in your team, department or organisation.

We support you with online coaching and tutoring, and you can stay in close touch with other workshop participants through video action learning sessions.

And you don’t need to write long essays. Our online Learning Log helps you gain the qualification through short, reflective statements on how you are using your newly-acquired knowledge in practice.

Leadership for High Performing Organisations enables you to combine practical learning and leadership development with the delivery of tangible business outcomes. It includes:

  • Making the business case for change.
  • Enabling highly effective jobs and teams.
  • Aligning organisational structures, management and procedures to high performance outcomes.
  • Engaging employees at every level in improvement and innovation.
  • Co-created leadership.
  • Delivering strategic goals.
  • People-Centred Change.
Organisations adopting these evidence-based workplace practices systematically gain 20-60% improvements in indicators ranging from productivity to employee engagement and health.

What They Say

I highly recommend the Programme and suggest that everyone should go on it. It works for every size and type of organisation.
Chris Owens, IOM

Rosemary and Peter from Workplace Innovation have taken participants on a learning journey. The programme has been excellent for learning from other organisations. Building key networks and relationships has been invaluable. The content of the programme has been geared to ensure all organisations gain something. We are introducing a new business model and this programme has certainly helped guide and support us as we commence our three year Strategic Plan to bring transformational change to the care sector.
Mairi Martin, Cornerstone

The Programme has definitely been worthwhile, we wouldn’t be where we are now without it.
Colin Maxwell, Premier Hytemp

The Programme exceeded all expectations and was enjoyable and rewarding. Invaluable facilitation of cultural change.

We are a not-for-profit organisation created specifically to stimulate and share better ways of working that lead to enhanced performance, higher levels of innovation and better working lives.

Our approach combines hard, evidence-based argument with the ability to stimulate and engage diverse business audiences. We work with leading international universities and research institutes to capture and analyse leading practice, and to translate it into practical tools and learning resources for change leaders.

EUWIN’s Knowledge Bank, established and curated by us, includes several hundred case studies and articles of value to people leading change. We created a unique portfolio of films to inspire and inform change leaders, and are the authors of The Essential Fifth Element, an actionable guide to workplace innovation supported by a robust body of evidence, case studies and practical resources.
