Leadership Conversations From Purpose to Impact

Leadership Conversations From Purpose to Impact

Dr Dean Williams

26 & 27 Apr
09:00AM - 05:00PM

Online via Zoom

Join Dr Dean Williams as he distils the communicative art of problem solving, facilitating change, and getting things done through people into tangible, actionable steps.

Programme Overview

As you observe life in organisations across all sectors, what you will see are your people engaged in multiple unfolding conversations; conversations between individuals, in teams, between divisions and with various stakeholders.

The productivity of organisational performance is, therefore, a direct reflection of the quality of the communication and conversation that constitutes the team or organisation, especially as it pertains to the design and implementation of core strategies, dealing with difficult problems, and responding to the demands of a changing environment.

Real leadership requires producing and managing a network of conversations that become the pathways for the facilitation of adaptive work and the accomplishment of breakthrough results. As a “conversation manager", the leader speaks and listens in a way as to maximise understanding, minimise distortion, and promote shared learning. These leaders also work with others to clarify their positions, test their assumptions, and produce a richer understanding of challenges and to foster stronger partnerships and agreements.

Based on Dr Dean Williams deep appreciation of the Asian culture and commitment to personal leadership development, he will work with you to generate insights about your actions, predilections, and possible blind-spots, distilling the key principles of successful organisational communication into practical skills and tips for leaders, like you, to move your conversations from purpose to impact.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the workshop, you will learn how to:

1. Develop your conversational and communication capacity so that you can better exercise leadership and mobilise individuals and groups to tackle problems, learn from error, and achieve breakthrough results.
2. Converse more powerfully with others to resolve differences and address troubling issues and concerns.
3. Generate healthy partnerships and enrol others as contributors to important programs and initiatives.
4. Use leadership conversations to advance the adaptive work of change.
