Masterclass

Insight: The Key Way to Leadership? 

Guest Speaker: Paddy Crowe, Transformational Consultant

We all are on our mission to succeed personally and professionally. In pursuit of this, we operate in ways which employ widely used and acceptable concepts and beliefs.

We read business best-sellers, we follow leadership gurus and their motivational mantras, and attend workshops and conferences to acquire skills to become more ‘insightful’ in life.

Could these most widely held and accepted concepts, theories and beliefs to bring about success in life and business be the very stumbling blocks that limit and distort our success outcome?

Do we have clarity as to whether this accepted way of operating in ourselves is indeed beneficial or whether unknowingly to us it may in fact the greatest impediment to our success in living life more insightfully?

In this three-hour Masterclass, our Research Practitioner Paddy Crowe discusses how we can live our lives in a better way, with greater clarity, balance and insight.

WORKSHOP

The Leadership Experience

Guest Speakers: Prof. Connell Fanning, Dr. Assumpta O’Kane and Bríd Bourke

We find many leaders are in crisis and struggling to deal with issues which are too complex for the their current stage of Leadership Development. As a result, they are finding that traditional executive development is failing to meet their needs. New solutions are needed.

This event will present a new line of thinking on Leadership Development with a pioneering method to transform leadership thinking. It will also demonstrate how people can truly ignite their own leadership potential and use it productively and positively in their role.

BREAKFAST TALK

Espresso Breakfast Briefing: The Crisis of Leadership

Guest Speakers: Prof. Connell Fanning, Dr. Assumpta O’Kane and Dr. Pearse O’Donovan

Conventional Leadership Development is failing to meet the demands of the VUCA environment: What to Do About It?

Executives and professionals at all levels face relentless pressures to work longer, produce more and make decisions faster. At the same time jobs are more complex as laws and regulations change, the market changes, technologies advance, organisations become more complicated and stakeholders’ demands escalate.

In this event, we challenge conventional Leadership & Talent Development methodologies and share a new approach that focuses on learning ‘How to Think’ and that addresses the real challenges of growing Leadership Minds for better individual and organisational performance.
