Have you witnessed a team make a poor decision, but felt there was little you could do to change it? If so, you are not alone. For example, a recent regulatory review of CBA found that employees often felt helpless to improve the poor team decisions that created many of the organisation’s problems. By applying insights from psychological research, this interactive seminar discusses what can be done to improve decisions made by teams. You will learn to better influence and challenge team decisions, better collaborate with diverse colleagues, and provide more effective leadership to team deliberations.

After sharing an easy to understand framework in this seminar we will explore the 4 enablers for innovation and collaboration. This will enable existing leaders to deeply understand the role they play in encouraging future/emerging leaders to have the courage to challenge current thinking and disrupt the status quo. The role of leaders to encourage the professional minds and hearts of the future has never been more important than in our current business environment.

Have you ever seen people "go to ground" when their team, project or leader is under pressure? It’s one of many signs that the culture isn’t quite right. Your people may be good at their job but not always truly effective as team members. Whether you are building a new team, managing an existing one or required to provide collaborative leadership across your organisation, you need to know the practical steps you can take to bring about a change in culture. In this seminar, collaboration expert Phil Preston will provide the practical skills and tools that you can apply when you get back to the office to improve team dynamics, performance and culture.
