Can You Crack the Code? NEW


You can’t be a great leader without being a good manager. And good management involves communicating with clarity.

But like an Enigma machine, managers like us are transmitting messages in a code that our people find hard to fathom. Believing we are making sense, we are in fact deleting and distorting information. That makes us difficult to understand – when now (more than ever) we need the message to be clear.

Inspired by Henley’s Developing Management Practice programme, this fun session enables you to crack your own code by developing the 3Cs (commissioning, clarity and communication).

Who Should Attend?

This event is directed at senior managers who are looking to increase the clarity and therefore effectiveness of communications. You may have stepped up to a new, more senior role where you are now responsible for commissioning and briefing larger and/or multiple projects. This event will suit you if you have experience of dealing with a variety of individuals who have both similar and different communication preferences to your own, or if you want to test your assumptions that direct reports ‘know what they are doing’ or ‘know what I want’.

Key words

The primary theme is LEADERSHIP and the secondary theme is ENGAGEMENT.

It is relevant to the development of Management, Commissioning, Clarity, Communication.
