Leaders of the Future NEW


2019 will be a defining year. New market paradigms will require new types of leadership to enable organisations to thrive in uncharted territory. During this session Tammy Day and Francis Briers from DPA will give you a glimpse into the future, sharing 6 new leadership archetypes that are thriving in some of the world’s leading organisations, and working with you to further develop your leadership repertoire.

During this highly interactive session you will explore, using a comic book narrative and creative, the decline of ‘Hero’ leadership and questions such as: ‘What killed Superman?’ You will get to meet each of the 6 new leadership characters, to explore what makes them excel, and to build your own leadership character for the next chapter of your career. Join us at the session to create your next leadership adventure…

Key Learning Outcomes

By the end of the event you will have:

• Learned about some of the forces reshaping how businesses need to operate and how the most successful companies are responding to these forces for change

• Discussed some of the changes you are already seeing emerge in your own business and heard from other participants about their experience (peer learning)

• Understood some of the flaws in traditional leadership thinking and identified the leadership traits that most need challenging in your own organisation

•Explored six new archetypes for leadership, and offer different perspectives on leadership effectiveness for the future

• Reflected on real-life examples (case studies) of these new archetypes and reflected on your own examples and role models for these styles

• Developed your own leadership ‘character’ to help you navigate the next chapter of your leadership story

Event Content and Delivery Style

The workshop will blend high-impact insight distilled from decades of global practice in developing leaders with lively discussion and experiential exploration.

The combination of pace and depth that Tammy and Francis are known for will enable you to gain a lot of value in a short period of time.

By introducing you to rich stimulus, they will spark new ways of thinking and facilitate powerful conversations to make the most of the diverse leadership experience in the room.

You will leave the event with a refreshed perspective on your own leadership. You can be a powerful influencer in developing others as well as yourself, having explored what ‘good’ looks like for the future of leadership.

Who Should Attend?

If you are a senior leader/manager and your job requires you to lead and engage teams, then this workshop will help you to think about new ways in which you can do this, suited to the new organisational contexts we all find ourselves in. It’s particularly suited to those who are part of an organisation going through change or needing to tackle new types of business challenge, perhaps requiring a different approach to leadership than in the past. The workshop will also be of interest to HR leaders.

It is relevant to the development of Change, VUCA, Future, Challange, Leadership, Styles, Archetypes, Character, Gamification.
