Organisations are conversations. Conversations happen in the boardroom, the lunchroom, even the bathroom, every day. It’s the quality of these conversations that can determine the success of an enterprise.

This one-hour online session is designed for managers and leaders who want to build the capacity and performance of their team. We discuss the conversations leaders should be having and when they should be having them. We also look at the power of storytelling and its capacity to influence and engage. We will share frameworks and ideas that you can use immediately to enrich the performance and development conversations you are having.

The webinar will explore the following:
