What rating would you give your leaders or colleagues for their ability to challenge behaviour effectively? When and how did you last evaluate their conversational capability?
Thinking of specific members of your leadership population, what would you score each of them out of 10 for their ability to pay attention to others, generate genuine thought in them and be mentally agile throughout their conversations?
And then consider if they all improved, even by just a few percent, what would be the cumulative organisational benefits?
Imagine each of your leadership population being just 10% more skilled in their capability at using everyday conversations and interactions to cause others to think through issues, to become more aware of what really matters, and to take appropriate ownership and responsibility.
What would the impact on organisational performance be?
Experience tells us that the three day programme is necessary to see real skill growth and measurable change in the participants. We can offer shorter programmes but inevitably the effectiveness is reduced. Call and speak to me about your needs and we I can recommend the best option for you. For larger programmes I have trusted colleagues who are skilled in the process so larger numbers can be accommodated.
