HCL Lab Preview Evening - Leading Healthy, Resilient Organisations for High Performance

Henley Centre for Leadership invites you to the Lab Preview Evening, held on 23rd November from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. This Preview is an opportunity for business leaders to discover with Dr Bernd Vogel, Director of the Henley Centre for Leadership and his colleagues, how the HCL Lab will work to benefit their organisations. It will also enable guests to explore the Lab’s particular combination of peer-to-peer learning, exploration and research for sustained leadership excellence.

The workshop will be led by Dr Caroline Rook, whose expertise lies in creating healthy workplaces through exploring the links between leadership and well-being. The evening’s focus will be on leading healthy, resilient organisations and individuals as the fundament for high performance – a challenge that lies at the heart of all organisations.

Many organisations run well-being and resilience programmes but productivity and work engagement levels remain patchy. Why are these initiatives failing despite significant financial investment? In our current fast-paced business environment and economic climate, senior managers and their teams alike are faced with constantly changing priorities and setbacks but are still under constant pressure to show sustained leadership performance. We will explore how to improve resilience in managers as well as across their teams and organisation, in order to develop consistently high performance.

Outcomes of the evening:

You will experience some of the strengths of the HCL Lab approach and

  • gain practical insights from our latest research on resilience and positive leadership
  • engage in peer-to-peer learning by working on best practices and experiences with other senior professionals
  • try out tools and techniques to create and increase resilience
  • experiment with an exciting form of   collaborative learning that delivers a transformative programme with new approaches to the practice of leadership. 

Who will attend?

  • Managers who personally and for their organisation pursue long-term well-being and performance
  • Senior and middle managers intrigued by transforming leadership excellence
  • HR and leadership development executives and experts with appetite for an innovative peer-to-peer learning and discovery consortium
