The Leadership Map Part 2: Rational Leadership

Overview:

This interactive and engaging workshop provides participants with an overview of all the key elements of leadership, in an easily digestible form (the Leadership Map), before focusing on the five leadership practices that CEOs and business leaders need to do exceptionally well to create and execute their strategy: Rational Leadership.

Each part of the workshop is delivered through theory and context, best practice examples, relevant stories from the speaker’s own experience and finally discussion and personal actions plans.

Each participant is provided with a personal A3 fold out with details of each of the five elements of Rational Leadership. During the workshop they will score their own leadership understanding and performance in each area and develop actions to take away.

Outline:

The Leadership Map is explained through an overview of the three key areas of leading a business: Belief and Behaviour, Planning and Execution and Challenge and Support.

Each of the five areas of Rational leadership are then covered in detail:

A) Creating your Strategy

B) Having the right Organisational Structure

C) Developing your Strategic Priorities

D) Measuring your Success

E) Executing through your Meeting Rhythm

Outcomes:

When looking at the five areas of Rational Leadership, it is clear that each area could easily fill a workshop on its own, however, it is also clear that participants will each score differently on the five areas. The workshop is designed therefore, to provide everyone with enough detail and best practice examples to score their individual performance, and then to develop personalised action plans to improve their leadership and hence the performance of their business.

Workshop requirements and handouts:

Flat screen or projector and screen (ideally with audio built in), HDMI connector, flipchart pad and pens. Members will be given a main handout on the day along with a reading list for each area covered. For the Rational Leadership workshop a number of extra handouts are provided. All the slides will be provided after the session by pdf and sent to the Chair for distribution. All videos are available on YouTube.
