Leadership Espresso – Supporting the Talent in Your Team


About the session:

There are many individuals who may not be at a point in their lives where extra responsibilities, more professional development or promotion will suit them. This can be for many reasons; childcare or other family responsibilities, the desire for some stability after this last 18 months and life changes. Managers want to keep these members of staff engaged and motivated, but can struggle to think what they might do as the usual suggestions of more responsibility, learning opportunities, promotion, mentoring others are not appropriate.

In the Leadership Espresso virtual interactive workshop, you will be encouraged to share views, discuss issues with colleagues, reflect on your own practice, apply your learning to your own context and explore the challenges and opportunities you face.

What will be covered?

During the session we will be:

  •  – Exploring where the individual is, the context and situation, what they hope for and what would be motivating and meaningful.
  •  – Input on conditions for change (Stages of readiness for change).
  • – Working with ambivalence and uncertainty.
  • – Input on facilitating change
  • – Input on reframing situations
  • – Encouraging problem-solving approach
