About the workshop
Leaders face a complex set of challenges, managing many different personalities and dynamics, with underlying psychological drivers. By understanding the essential psychology principles behind these relationships, at an individual and organisational level, you will be better equipped to lead others effectively, and safely manage the impacts of common de-railers.
One major obstacle you will face as a leader is managing change. Change can be scary and it’s unsettling - in fact, even in the organisational sense, it can be genuinely traumatic. Leadership and change management, therefore, can really be seen as a trauma prevention strategy. When we consider that the symptoms of trauma include anxiety, poor concentration, confusion, reduced memory, and irritability, it is clear why effective and psychologically literate change management strategies are essential to lead a happy and productive workforce.
Ross has worked in psychology-based leadership and change management across a variety of sectors, from front-line services to corporate environments. In this evidence-based and practice-informed workshop, you will delve into the psychology of leadership and explore the relationship between organisational change and trauma. You will acquire skills and strategies to transition teams and lead through change with as little disruption and damage as possible.
