Are you ready to take the next step in your leadership development?
What has your (real) training been? How can you put it to the service of others? What is it that really motivates you? What matters? These are all questions that we've heard many times around people that inspire for change. Less frequently, we hear: What do you do when things don't work out the way you want them to? How do you deal with the challenges of collaboration, leadership and participation? What triggers you or even stops you from taking action? How do you feel about yourself?
So, we thought we could do something to bring in a new set of questions into the circles of changemakers that we believe in and want to support through some powerful "peer group" time.
The framework we've chosen for this exploration is The Human Element Cornerstone® Training Course. This three and a half day immersion offers an understanding of the logic of human behaviour and interactions. It includes a set of practical tools for collaborating with others and overcoming obstacles to action. The course begins with a focus on increasing awareness of your own behavior and motivations because, oddly enough, in learning how to deal with others effectively, it is most useful to start with yourself.
By gaining a detailed understanding of how you operate, what motivates you, and what causes you distress, you set the stage for better relations with others. Throughout, we apply our learning to the "real issues" of leadership and teamwork both inside and outside our various contexts, providing for new ways of thinking about solving old and recurring problems.
In other words, this is an invitation to take A BREAK from what you're doing for a few days, to explore your personal leadership and take your change making to the next level. The group will be there to make the work real, to empower and support each other's efforts to make positive and sustainable change for ourselves, others and society.
What you get
The training is based on over 40 years of research, summarised in The Human Element® concept by the American psychologist Will Schutz. It includes the FIRO-model, Choice, Element B (behavior), Element F (feelings), Element S (self), Self-concept, Defences and Team development. In other words, you will get...
Tools for communication and conflict management. Increased understanding of how you work in a group and how others work together with you.
Some of these tools are quantitative self-assessments and feedback.
Practice in giving and receiving feedback; increased Self-esteem through exploration of your strengths, challenges and fears.
Experiential components are combined with reflections and exchange.
Increase your self-awareness and ability to take responsibility for your relationships and make your own choices clearly.
You will reflect on deeper patterns and reactions and share with others.
"The Human Element gave me a framework for my leadership.
I am much more aware of myself, which makes me more effective in leading others."
