Developing Leaders Changing Organisations Workshop – 3 November 2017

150 150 Practice Five

Leadership effectiveness is a complex tapestry of mind-sets and abilities that are interwoven and contextual to each other. Does your leadership framework include the qualities required of individual contributors as well?  Most leaders are grown from within, so it is essential that you lay the groundwork for leadership at recruitment. People often find themselves in leadership roles without preparation, mentorship or quality support. They are often left to find or to develop their own way in the maelstrom of culture, convention and misapplied initiatives.

The Opportunity

Dr Paul Gibney and Practice Five P/L present a one day workshop on the Practice Five™ framework.

This workshop has been designed to:

  • Understand the concepts of practice, supervision, leadership and change.
  • Look at how neuroscience is changing the way we lead in organisations.
  • Examine the 12 practice aspects of the Practice Five™ framework.
  • Develop a strategy for improving your leadership skills.

What makes for a great leader? Research shows that great leaders are both goal oriented and people oriented. However, in a sample of 60,000 managers, only 0.77% were perceived as having both goal and social focus (Kabacoff, 2014). This workshop will introduce a leadership framework that provides both goal and social focus to leadership and a methodology for improving in both.
