Expanding your Leadership Repertoire


Why do we apply a ‘one person, one leadership concept’ approach when trying to solve complex and changing challenges? Why do we tend towards a preferred way of leading, when there is a whole range of leadership practices available to managers as well as organisations?

Given the multi-faceted reality of leadership in our businesses today, as managers we need to expand our leadership repertoire. At this event, we challenge how you think about yourself as a leader and work through a variety of leadership ideas, inspirations and practices (traditional, new and for the future) that work today. Adding your own experiences, we’ll develop a stock of skills and behaviours that you can habitually apply to increase your repertoire and improve your leadership performance.

Key Learning Outcomes

This event is designed to help you to significantly expanded your leadership toolbox. By the end of the event you will have:

  • engaged with a wide repertoire of leadership practices for different leadership situations and challenges
  • stretched your thinking and assumptions about what leadership actually means – a key building block to successfully shifting your range of leadership practices
  • (re-)discovered your leadership self-image and stretched your leadership identity and confidence
  • developed a set of individual and situation-specific insights and activities to take back into your leadership practice

Event Content and Delivery Style

  • Exploring your leadership sphere of influence
  • A marketplace of diverse leadership practices
  • A range of leadership styles
  • A range of followership styles
  • A range of team leadership practices
  • Learning transfer to kickstart practice

The workshop will be a highly interactive day that makes you explore, experiment and practice a huge repertoire of leadership tools. We will do a leadership marketplace ‘to shop around’ in various leadership practices. The workshop combines highly practical and proven leadership tools, methods and business-context applications with the challenge to re-evaluate what leadership actually means. The workshop builds on reflective and experiential learning, has a mixture of short inputs to set scenes, diagnostics, individual and group work, and individual reflection. All of this ensures that you will expand your own leadership repertoire and toolbox for an ever-changing and demanding world.
