At the completion of Workshop 2 – Diploma of Leadership and Management, we thought about the question ‘What makes a leadership and management training workshop successful?’
Aside from great content, dynamic facilitators and experiential activities (🤔 😬 ), working with leaders that are inquisitive, focussed on learning, willing to share their experiences and actively listening to each other makes all the difference.
We had the privilege of facilitating Workshop 2 of the Diploma of Leadership & Management with leaders from Lyondellbasell last Friday, focussing on the competency unit ‘Develop and use emotional intelligence’. A great learning environment generated by the people in the room, punctuated by inquisitive minds looking to understand more about themselves, their teams and how team relationships work.
While facilitating this Diploma unit, we also realised how essential it is to assess and evaluate leadership skills and behaviours before, during and at completion of larger leadership training programs. This is where the Velocity Leadership CheckPoint came to the fore. Not only could we measure and debrief all of the participants one on one prior to the ‘Develop and use emotional intelligence’ unit (making many of the Q&A assessments much easier), we could focus discussion and attention on particular behaviour traits within the CheckPoint, such as:
- Align – Commitment
- Align – Resilience
- Align – Transparent
- Aware – Clarity / Reflection
- Aware – Self Awareness
- Aware – Confidence
- Aware – Assertiveness
- Aware – Personal Fulfilment
- Altitude – Active Listening
- Altitude – Empathy
- Adapt – Adaptability
- Adapt – Influence
- Adapt – Dependability
Not only did this focus discussion in the workshop, it allowed us (and the participants) to check their emotional intelligence strengths and weaknesses in a safe learning environment, both one on one and in the small group setting.
