Event Details

Do you find it easy or challenging to initiative those conversations that are difficult but likely to make a difference? In our increasingly online world there is a temptation to hide behind email and to avoid having those critical, professional conversations.

In this session we explore the mindset and approach that might help you to have those all-important conversations - especially with those who never seem to be on your wavelength! This event is a great opportunity for developing leaders, and understanding how you can become an effective leader and make a real difference. 

The session will incorporate a mix of business theory with interactive audience engagement. There will be time at the beginning and at the end of each session for networking with fellow peers. 

Session Facilitators: Thomas Chalmers and Russell Borland, Partners of Leading Figures.
