The Work of Leaders: Connect to real-world demands
Based on best practices,” The Work of Leaders” connects to real-world demands, generating powerful conversations that provide a clear path for action.
Obtain valuable insights into leadership best practices based on work done by Murray Janewski in partnership with John Wiley and Sons. Leadership will be defined as a one-to-many relationship as opposed to the one-to-one relationship that is unique to the field of management. Leadership focuses on tangible steps directed at leading a team toward desired outcomes. Discuss the findings of six years of research and input from over 300 people at over 150 organizations.
Using the framework of Vision, Alignment and Execution, The Work of Leaders encourages leaders to understand their own leadership behaviours and how those behaviours will impact their effectiveness in leading others.
While thought provoking, The Work of Leaders stimulates fresh conversations and perspectives regardless of the leader’s knowledge or experience. It’s an opportunity for leaders at all levels of learning to reflect on how they approach each step of their work. In addition, it encourages reflection and discussion about the team and the organization.
Participants will come away with both the insight and the actions to be able to grow as a leader and to grow their teams.

Ignite Your Culture! 6 Steps to Fuel your Organization’s Profits, People and Potential
According to Gallup, employee engagement isn’t getting any better despite a recent uptick in attention and effort. From Nov 2011 to Nov 2015 the % of engaged employees has risen a mere 1.8%. You see, employee engagement only measures the symptom, it isn’t as helpful when it comes to solutions. Measuring culture and cultural entropy directly is a much better strategy to inspiring human performance.
In this session you will hear real life stories about how an organization’s culture can either propel it forward or create barriers that hold it back. Learn how the Values Centre methodology and tools can change the conversation and where your organization fits on the 7 Levels of Organizational Consciousness. Discover a unique 6-step process that demystifies the course of action leaders need to take to shift from a default culture to one designed for success.
When it comes to culture, do you need to be a Google or a Zappo’s? No. Could you be substantially and dramatically better than where you are today? Absolutely!
