What really motivates you? Or your people? How can you accurately measure motivation?
To be engaged you need to be motivated, which drives performance. Highly engaged employees are 50% more likely to exceed their performance targets found research by the Hay Group, while the best companies at engaging people achieve 4.5 times the revenue growth — it’s the ultimate key to improved turnover, productivity and profitability.
Understanding your own motivators saves time, effort and radically improves your performance, happiness and results, by going beyond behaviours to address your deeper drivers — your WHY?
Carole Gaskell will explain the roots of motivation, help you to understand your own motivational drivers and that of your team/organisation to re-light the fire within your organisation, and how you can accurately measure motivation.

This has far-reaching implications for energising ourselves as well as step-changing the impact a leader can have when they understand the motivational hot buttons of their people.

Date: September 2017 9.00 – 16.00

By the end of the session participants will:
• Understand what motivates people and why motivation is critical for business performance
• Learn the 3 roots of motivation

• Understand the 9 different work motivators and how to recognise them in others
• Learn the hot buttons to motivate yourself and others
• Understand how to measure and track motivational levels
• Know how to align motivation to individuals, teams and the wider organisation

 E-on Award – “UK’s Most Energetic Boss”! (2007)
 In 2007 became Visiting Professor in Business Creativity at the University of Bedfordshire.

Date: 29 November 2017 9.00 – 16.00

 

Objectives

The world is changing at an ever increasing pace, but the decisions we make and the behaviours that we display are based on models of “reality” which are based on our understanding of the outdated patterns from the past. We MUST find ways of challenging these patterns, to free up our thinking, to generate fresh and novel (i.e. creative) ideas that then feed innovation.

This keynote will demonstrate how creativity can remove the blockages that operate within everyone’s minds, to unleash the power of Breakthrough Thinking, to generate ideas that are both novel and useful. A culture of creativity can substantially differentiate a business, attracting and retaining the best staff whilst enhancing added value.

Outcomes

Attendees will leave with an understanding of:

• the strategic benefit of adopting creative thinking within the culture of their business;
• the blockages that operate within the mind of all individuals that effectively block creativity;
• specific techniques to overcome those blockages;
• a practical and systematic approach to introduce creativity into the culture of their business
Approach

By identifying the key blocks to creativity, it is possible to develop strategies to overcome them, and then to release the creative potential of every member of staff.

The presentation will explore the following topics:

1. Blocks
• The thinking process
• The brain as a patterning system
• Mind set
2. Solutions
• Playfulness
• Creative Problem Solving Techniques

Case studies will be provided to demonstrate, without doubt, the benefits of introducing a culture of creativity.

Diversity and inclusion – the competitive edge

Presenter: Rina Goldenberg Lynch
Lawyer, director, consultant, coach, trainer
www.voiceatthetable.com

Rina has 20 years of experience as a lawyer. Rina started her legal career in
Washington DC, worked as a banking lawyer with Clifford Chance LLP in London and as a Director in the legal department of ING Bank London.
In her tenure as chair of the employee body, Rina observed that most leaders didn’t realise the full potential of their employees, leaving untapped much talent, dedication and commitment. In addition, as mentor to female colleagues, she also experienced that, with support and encouragement, women’s confidence soared, enabling them to clear unhelpful internal assumptions and achieve new goals.

Equipped with these realisations, and using her skills as lawyer, trainer, negotiator and mentor, Rina expanded her expertise to leadership development and team strategy and engagement.

Passionate about seeing women achieve their potential by being true to their nature and personality, Rina left the corporate world in 2014 to establish Voice At The Table, a boutique gender diversity consultancy. The consultancy helps build businesses that use diversity as corporate strength by developing corporate cultures in which individuals of all backgrounds thrive. In addition, the consultancy’s Training Academy for Professional Women offers soft skills training for women and men which build confidence, resilience and initiative to contribute fully and authentically.

Rina is also Board Member of the charity Professional Women’s Network London, an Executive
Coach and a qualified ILM trainer.

Voice At The Table is a strategic consultancy helping companies thrive by building inclusive cultures and nurturing diversity of thought.

Our goal is to transform corporate culture to an environment in which women (and men) thrive on their terms. In this way, we believe we achieve two aims: (1) help companies grow by reaping the benefits of their diverse workforce, and (2) empower women to step forward and achieve long-term career success.

Achieving this requires a two-pronged approach: (1) transforming corporate culture to acknowledge every individual’s talents; and (2) supporting women in realising their natural potential.

We work (1) with organisations to help build more inclusive cultures, and (2) with professional women to build confidence, resilience and initiative. In focusing on individuals as well as organisational structures, we help businesses succeed in an increasingly more competitive environment.

We work with big companies and small, including BAML, ING (London & Amsterdam), American
Express, Markit, Allianz, Dentons, Shearman & Sterling, Kimberly-Clark, PGIM Real Estate and many others.

Voice At The Table: we help companies realise the untapped potential of their people. We show men and women how to progress and contribute authentically. Our solutions encourage diversity, create the best teams and drive innovation and growth.

PREPARING YOUR COMPANY FOR THE FUTURE WITH GENDER BALANCE AND DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT

Date: 19 January 2018 9.00 – 16.00

Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.
Stephen Covey, author of “7 habits of highly effective people”

The benefits of Diversity to an organisation have been frequently cited as improving

  • Decision making
  • Talent retention and development
  • New product and service development
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Business growth
  • ROI, revenues and other financial measurements

Forbes Magazine:
Successful companies are not the ones that build a business, then look at diversity as a nice-to-have attribute. Truly successful and innovative companies are those that build diverse teams when they are just starting out in their own apartment or their folks’ garage. Diversity is a mentality, not just strategic imperative.

In this seminar, we explore the following topics:
 What is Diversity and how do we build it?
 What evidence is there to support the benefits of Diversity?
 How do we get the full benefit of our diverse workforce?
 Best practice examples from the corporate world
Through presentation and stimulating exercises, you will uncover the benefits of diversity to your own company and learn how to grow, nurture and develop it to make your own business more successful.

He also uses his coaching skills to deliver practical, relevant and thought-provoking keynote presentations.
In sport, Keith was the Great Britain national coach for various sprint & relay events from 1990-95, as well as being personal coach to many international athletes, some to World & Olympic standard, including Helen Frost, Katharine Merry & Darren Campbell.

Date: 15 February 2018 9.00 – 16.00

 

“How to build your desired performance – combining coaching with data/technology.”

How good would it be if you could choose your future performance and then deliver it? This is exactly what Keith did with Richard for Rio 2016. He will share the process in an interactive way that allows you to apply it to your own goals or those of your team. As you analyse the process against your own context, it will challenge you to think about;

• Do you have big goals and performance goals?
• How clear are you about what needs to improve?
• What are you measuring and in how much detail?
• How effectively are you monitoring / tracking your progress?
• What is the difference between ‘target’ days and ‘normal’ days?
• How much rest and recovery do you need to enable effective adaptation?

An effective process is helpful, however it is the performance coaching that delivers the results. In the wider context, this session will explore and provide answers to the questions;

• What makes performance coaching different to other coaching styles?
• How do you help someone to take their performance to the next level?
• How do you generate true belief / self-confidence?
• How do you shorten and enhance the feedback loop?
• Are you driving the data or is the data driving you?
• Do your questions generate real thought or just answers?
• How directive does a performance coach need to be?
• What is the best way to develop resilience in a performer?

Keith has a very interactive style so be ready to do a lot of hard work. The good news is that you will leave with practical ideas to enhance your performance, and the performance of those around you. The not so good news is that you may need to have a lie down afterwards!

Making Big Change Happen: Wisdoms that can help you inspire, lead and deliver big change

Presenter: Neil Scotton, B.Tech. (Hons), C.Eng. FRSA, PCC
Coach | Catalyst | Columnist | Consultant | Facilitator | Speaker | Author

If you are a leader, what are you leading for? How strong is the sense of shared endeavour within your team and organisation? What’s your true potential – as a human, as a leader, as a catalyst in your organisation? Indeed – what’s the full potential of your organisation (or your part of it)? How can reflecting on how your life and leadership will be remembered by others in the future help you resolve some of your most complex problems and inspire your choices and actions now?
Neil Scotton helps teams and leaders make big change happen. A genuine thought leader who is driven to supporting those creating a better future, his work is summed up by the organisation he co-founded in 2011 – The One Leadership Project. The Project helps teams and whole organisations make big change happen by them acting together ‘as one’. And leaders to be effective, inspirational and resilient by being ‘at one’ with themselves. Clients achieve new behaviours and culture change within the team and organisation, exceptional results and positive impact in the world. They include Arthritis Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, Santander, University of Sussex, University of Surrey Business School + many more.

Neil is also ‘the coach’s coach’, supporting award winning coaches and top leaders in the coaching profession itself. He led the UK ICF chapter during its period of unprecedented growth to become the biggest chapter in the world. He received the International Coach Federation’s President’s Award for his ‘evolutionary leadership’ and ‘contribution to the global coaching profession’. He was chosen from their membership of over 25000 coaches to co-create and deliver the ICF’s 20th anniversary event, bringing together over 100 of the world’s most influential coaches to reflect on the work of the ICF so far and its future direction. He’s been invited to inspire audiences in London, Helsinki, Moscow, Montreal, Istanbul and many more.

A Chartered Engineer by first profession, he combines gritty reality with the highest sense of purpose and possibility. The column he co-writes with Dr Alister Scott in Coaching at Work magazine exploring the role of coaches and coaching to address the big issues of our times received the magazine’s ‘Best Thought Leadership’ award.

Neil combines a sense of play with the profound. At a recent workshop he began with the question: “Would you coach Donald Trump?” As people moved beyond the laughter they discovered some of their deepest beliefs, drivers and values and the purpose in their coaching.

Neil and Alister’s published work on Legacy Thinking led Peter Cheese, CEO of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development to comment: “These principles and ideas will resonate with all concerned and responsible leaders.” Professor Peter Hawkins described it as “inspirational and thought provoking”. Keith Bowring, Head of Elite Coaching for English Rugby and former National Coach for Wales described the workshop they ran: “This was one of the most thought-provoking workshops I’ve ever been to.”

Bringing the Legacy Thinking approach into organisations has helped achieve culture change and ‘best place to work’ awards.

Their latest work is ‘The Little Book of Making Big Change Happen’ builds on this. Due for publication in May 2017, it distils what they have learnt from working with, and supporting, extraordinary people who have impact within and beyond their organisation that is far beyond what would normally be expected.

Pre-publication reviews include:

Andrew Wolstenholme OBE FR.Eng FICE, Chief Executive, Crossrail (Europe’s largest infrastructure project): “…an invaluable guide – a set of prompts that should be constantly referred to, practiced and delivered’.

Susan Allan, Chief Transformation Officer, Santander UK: “A quiet voice of reason which will be useful for leaders and their teams alike. I loved reading it.”

Dr Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness: “…unique and much needed! Perfect for people and teams who want to make a big contribution to the world – and who want to make their organisations happier and more resilient along the way too. ”

 

Date: 22 March 2018 9.00 – 16.00

 

As mentioned in the words, we’re all about ‘One’: Helping people get their teams to ‘act as one’ brilliantly together, helping leaders get their organisation to ‘act as one’ with values that are lived rather than slogans on walls and that win awards for being great places to work as well as delivering exceptional results, helping people get core relationships such as Chairs and CEO’s to act together as one and be able to handle the really difficult stuff without fear so that the best decisions are made, and helping leaders be at one with themselves – more relaxed, clearer thinking, confident, able to tackle their most complex and difficult situations with greater ease and more able to turn their ideas and dreams into reality.

In doing this we help organisations develop strategies that inspire their people and their supporters and commercial partners. We help organisations grow the skills within their business to enable cultural change from the inside (rather than simply clever consultants coming in and telling them what they ought to do). We help senior leadership teams work exceptionally well together. We help them see their most important issues from new and revealing perspectives including the viewpoints of all their stakeholders. We help leaders develop as people and change and adapt their beliefs and behaviours so that not only are they more effective, but they feel more themselves’, working authentically. We help people discover purpose and deep fulfilment, shared purpose and camaraderie in their work, able to have the toughest conversations and foster encouragement, recognition and appreciation in all they do.

The big change is therefore the big inner change within individuals, the big change that happens when a team unlocks it’s potential, the big change that happens when a whole organisations works as one, and we love helping organisations that are shifting the system and creating big change in the world – clients are addressing big issues like cancer, arthritis, environmental decline, building great places to live and work, and helping some of the most vulnerable people, as well as commercial organisations becoming employers of choice – recruiting and retaining the best staff and customers – and financial organisations help their staff deal with phenomenal pressures.

What we bring is the mix of practical experience, proven models, deep wisdoms and extraordinary, challenging, transformative conversations.

In this workshop Neil will share observations, lessons, thoughts and principles from the book that will make you stop, think, and maybe do things very differently.

Everything he shares will be selected because it has come from, or found to have huge impact on, highly effective leaders, and because it consistently transforms coaching conversations.

Bring along your most challenging questions and problems, or biggest possibilities and dreams, and there will be space within the workshop to move them forwards in ways you’ve probably never imagined.

Ask him to explain ‘The Graph of Everything’ and the way you look at issues facing yourself, your team, your organisation and more will change forever.

A masterclass on Relational Team Coaching: daring to dance on the edge
In a world that is increasingly complex and volatile, with people and politics becoming more and more polarised, connectedness is at the heart of performance. Teams are all about relationships. Relationships between team members, between the team and organizational stakeholders, between the team and other teams, and between the team and other organizations such as partners, customers, the community. The 6th Ridler Report (www.Ridlerandco.com) shows that 76% of organizations expect to increase their use of team coaching over the next two years. Relational Team Coaching is about relating in a way that cultivates deeper, trusted connections.
Session Description
A highly interactive masterclass exploring Relational Team Coaching: cultivating connections for outstanding performance. In life, we learn, develop and grow in relationship; therefore relationship is the essence of transformational learning. My aim in this masterclass is to inspire coaches around relational team coaching, a radically different way of thinking about coaching teams. Relational team coaching offers an expanded view of coaching to encompass relational dynamics as a source of both data and experimentation in the service of team development and performance. Relational team coaching invites us to recognise and proactively engage with the interplay between relationships.

When we put relationship at the heart of coaching, we are dancing on the edge- the edge where meaning is made, the edge of uncertainty and unpredictability, the edge of connectedness and potential. This requires courage as it is both exciting and unsettling.

In this masterclass, you will:
• Discover the philosophy of Relational Team Coaching and the significance of the ‘relational turn’ from a global perspective.
• Understand principles of Relational Team Coaching and the connection between relationship and performance.
• Learn about Relational Team Coaching competencies and experience them in action.
• Consider how these principles build on other approaches to team coaching, including Systemic Team Coaching, Leadership Team Coaching, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, team building and more.
• Explore the importance of emergent experience as a vehicle for profound change.
• Challenge yourself as a coach in new ways
Ultimately, this masterclass will provide you with an insight into Relational Team Coaching and will enable you to consider its significance for you as a professional coach.

Date: 7 June 2018 9.00 – 16.00

Workshops offered – Summary of overview of the themes:

1. Leading and Managing Effectively Across Organisational and Cultural Boundaries
This workshop examines how we in our various roles (coaches, managers, or leaders) can better understand, support and guide those who work with the unfamiliar, lead in the unknown or engage with the culturally, personally and/or socially challenging. Working effectively across formal and informal boundaries is essential. We have to understand the purpose and role of boundaries, appreciate the different types of boundaries and identify which ones really matter – when and in what ways. To be proficient as managers and coaches we must become adept at working with, through and around unfamiliar and new boundaries. We also have to acquire and practice the skills that enable us to shape and shift different kinds of boundaries.

2. Working Effectively with Strong Leaders: How to Take Yourself, Team and Organisation Beyond Leaders and Their Shadows
This workshop examines ways in which engaging differently can bring to the fore a more effective balancing of qualities and challenging aspects, within the wider leadership, and across the organisation. This wider approach to balancing enables whole groups and communities to be engaged in creating and supporting the effectiveness of leaders. This kind of engagement is essential if organisations and communities are to tackle the most challenging issues and problems being faced. It also enables leaders at different levels to work better together. Going beyond the leadership shadow – enables the shift from the individual to the collective, from me to us. It also makes it more possible to consider what is needed to develop a style and practice of leadership that is built on a continuous deepening of awareness that goes beyond “fixing and self-improvement”

This Next Step – Leadership and Organisational Development Orientations for 2nd (Personal / Organisational) Journeys – This workshop considers how personal development and organisational development has to take on a new character. That is – it must enable us to shift from doing things better and making things more effective, to doing better things and to doing many and more, different, things. We know that real personal and organisational development goes beyond simply setting SMART objectives and executing well elaborated developmental activities. We face a newly emerging reality, where our dedication to acquiring new skills may leave us extremely well equipped for a world that no longer exists. Organisations must now be simultaneously “learning” and “unlearning” if they are to survive. In an interconnected world where our fortunes are created, shaped, affected and influenced through a multiplicity of dependencies, no “self-managed and self-activated plan” is sufficient to prepare us for the challenges we face.

Please see below for details re: each of the above workshops !

 

Coaching Without Borders – Workshop Outlines
1. Workshop Outline 1 – Leading and Managing Effectively Across Organisational and Cultural Boundaries

 

In a globalised world where people and organisations are working more interactively and dynamically with each other, much of what we do involves working across boundaries. These boundaries are wide ranging and both tangible and intangible – shaping the way we experience, cultures, organisations professions, and even whole countries and continents.

For managers, leaders and coaches, working effectively across formal and informal boundaries is essential. We have to understand the purpose and role of boundaries, appreciate the different types of boundaries and identify which ones matter, when and in what ways. To be proficient as managers and coaches we must become adept at working with, through and around boundaries. We also have to acquire and practice the skills that enable us shape and shift different kinds of boundaries.

The workshop is designed to help you become accomplished at working and leading yourself and others to engage effectively with and through boundaries. It starts by pointing to what we can learn from the experiences and insights of people whose work and life experiences make them stand out – modelling ways of living and leading well across boundaries. It then examines how we in our various roles (coaches, managers, or leaders) can better understand, support and guide those who work with the unfamiliar, lead in the unknown or engage with the culturally, personally and/or socially challenging. The workshop will specifically focus on how to lead the different through engaging with difference. It will explore how to:

• work differently and effectively outside familiar professional, life, and cultural experience and practice;
• adopt a questing/exploring mentality towards unfamiliar situations and experiences;
• use core questions, insightful guides, heightened intuition and astute practices to ground and guide themselves;
• connect relate and engage better to engender mutual appreciation and inclusion.

Workshop participants will also have the opportunity (if they choose) to bring one of their own experiences as an action inquiry case to work with others in the workshop – who can help them to reflect and examine the usefulness of the ideas and approaches that have been introduced.
Overall the workshop is intended to help you better to connect with, and provide support for, yourself and others when working in / with the different and the unfamiliar. It will help you get better at stimulating your own and other people’s interest in, curiosity for and sensitivity towards difference.

The workshop will also challenge you to reflect and act on practical steps that you can take to:

• find better ways of engaging cross boundary
• identify pragmatic ways to foster and enable inclusion
• engender courage to envision and become excited (rather than disabled) by uncertainties
• encourage greater focus on the value offered by difference,

Workshop Outline 2 – Working Effectively with Strong Leaders: How to Take Yourself, Team and Organisation Beyond Leaders and Their Shadows

 

In recent years, there has been much attention given to examining what effective leadership is about and how best to achieve it. It is now widely appreciated that leaders need to be self-aware and to work at understanding well the strengths and weaknesses that may help or hinder their own ability to be effective in organisational or political settings.

The idea of the Leadership Shadow is also now well developed through history, mythology and more recently through academic study. It considers how strong and capable leaders may under certain conditions go into overdrive and start acting out in problematical and difficult (shadow side) ways that can be disastrous for their own wellbeing – even affecting their organisations and communities.
Leaders facing such challenges often turn to coaching and mentoring to help them better understand themselves and deal with difficulties and challenges as well as other influences.
Through growing self-awareness and awareness of drivers, patterns and influences they can learn how better to work through their strengths and with their weaknesses and to address and integrate their challenging shadow aspects.

This workshop takes as a starting point the improvement efforts that self-aware leaders are taking to face up to and to work to balance and integrate the light and shadow aspects of their leadership – within themselves, and in the context within which they work. The workshop then goes beyond this, moving from an internal focus on fixing and self-improvement to the more external focus of adapting to, interacting, amplifying, and engaging differently. The workshop examines ways in which engaging differently can bring to the fore a more effective balancing of qualities and challenging aspects within the leadership and across the organisation enabling whole groups and communities to tackle the most challenging issues and problems being faced, better together. The shift is then made from the individual to the collective, from me to us.

Those attending this workshop will have the opportunity to work collectively to:

• understand better the relational nature of leadership
• deepen their appreciation of leadership as a collective distributed endeavour
• reframe – what the leadership shadow is and why it matters to individuals and organisations
• understand the significant frameworks and approaches leaders, managers and coaches can take to better balance the light and shadow aspects as they manifest themselves at personal and organisational levels
• consider what is needed to develop a style and practice leadership that is built on a continuous deepening of awareness that goes beyond “fixing and self-improvement”
• explore approaches and activities that can be used to focus better on being present and interactive in ways that enable interactions with others to shape and transform/make more valuable the qualities and contributions of leadership
• consider what the ideas and issues being raised may imply for them in their own situations, realities organisations and experiences

Workshop Outline 3 – This Next Step – Leadership and Organisational Development Orientations for 2nd (Personal / Organisational) Journeys
Helping Leaders and Professionals to Embrace and Grow During Unfamiliar Uncertainty:

Over the last 20 years we have become familiar with the concepts of personal development and organisational development and why both matter in a world of dynamic technological and social change. At a personal level, most of us as employees and professionals have created and / or helped others create, personal or organisational development plans. As coaches, consultants and organisational leaders we may have been charged with the responsibility to “facilitate”, “drive” or “enable” organisational development project and programmes. Yet many of us also know that developmental and organisational plans, methodologies and activities, on their own, very rarely deliver extraordinary achievement or truly transformational development.

We know that real personal and organisational development goes beyond simply setting SMART objectives and executing well elaborated developmental activities. We face a newly emerging reality, where our dedication to acquiring new skills may leave us extremely well equipped for a world that no longer exists. Organisations must now be simultaneously “learning” and “unlearning” if they are to survive. In an interconnected world where our fortunes are created, shaped, affected and influenced through a multiplicity of dependencies, no “self-managed and self-activated plan” is sufficient to prepare us for the challenges we face.

 

So, personal development and organisational development has to take on a new character. It must enable us to shift from doing things better and making things more effective, to doing better things and to doing many and more, different, things. It needs to make us better able to deal with lives that are longer, messier, less linear, more varied and extra complicated. It needs to be able to take us beyond focusing on planning for achievement and into the realm of exploration: aimed at realising hidden and unknown potential.

If we are to survive thrive as individuals and organisations in turbulent, unpredictable, and interdependent times we simply must develop new orientations to take us beyond our first journeys and their achievements into second more nuanced and intricate journeys with their elusive wonders. We need ways of navigating into the unmarked, and the mysterious, seeking out the potential that lies hidden in many of us – even though we discern that finding it is essential for what lies ahead.

This workshop focuses on the necessary orientations that are needed by leaders, managers and coaches facing this daunting next step in their own personal development or the development of their organisations. It is for those who having made significant progress to date, and now need to take a further step; a step that may take them increasingly into uncharted waters, in which improving skills, setting clear objectives, and executing developmental plans, is simply not sufficient. The workshop will be an opportunity for those participating to become more knowledgeable about how to become and better equipped to address issues relating to:

• the next step/2nd journey perspective – what it is and why it matters to people leading and working in organisations today
• the new personal and organisational development challenges associated with taking these next steps within “the second journey”
• the importance of personal and organisational mindsets, including their role and influence on development and how they can be confronted shaped or changed to meet new requirements
• the personal and organisational orientations that are essential for people and organisations taking the next step
• the practices frameworks and starting points that it is helpful to be aware of and to use as you take/help others through their personal/organisational development second journeys
