Leading when The Unthinkable Occurs

Leading when The Unthinkable Occurs

Can you imagine standing in front of a large or small group of your followers where something totally unthinkable, unplanned-for, unpredicted is occurring right now? How will you handle yourself? What will your body do? How will you speak, to bring the beginnings of a response to the situation that is arising, lurching towards chaos and crisis as the first words come out of your mouth?

Are you willing to take two days out of your office to increase your presence and charisma as a leader in situations where the unthinkable, unplanned for and unpredictable is occurring right in front of you?

Would you like to be able to consciously and competently speak and move during those first moments and then throughout the ongoing response periods, to restore order and workability?

My friend and colleague Tim Dalmau and I are hosting the visit to Brisbane in early April by Michael Grinder, a world expert on macro and micro self management and interpersonal skills.

Michael has worked with leaders across the world in all types of organisations for many years.

We believe that world and organisational events are becoming so spontaneous and intricate that these skills are now fundamental to every successful leader’s repertoire.

Michael is working with Tim to build new expertise and knowledge in leading during the increasingly complex circumstances that are emerging every day. He is going to share this work with this special group, which I hope will include you.

Please see http://www.michaelgrinder.com for more information about Michael and his work. You can also read about Tim at http://www.dalmau.com

Michael, Tim and I believe that people like you will gain a huge benefit from learning and refining these skills and being prepared. As we develop mastery in these situations we can handle everyday Leadership challenges much more easily and effectively.

My personal experience is that as we develop these skills we build our awareness of who we are and how to act in leaderful ways that benefit others. In that process we build wisdom in life because, as we know how to masterfully manage ourselves and to interact with others, we build our capacity to understand how the world works.

The workshop will be set up like a learning laboratory, where you get to pick up and practice new skills and see them develop in real time. The working environment will be welcoming, warm, inspiring and encouraging.

Michael will model and teach the behaviours and skills we need in these situations throughout the very interactive and non threatening two days we will be together.

In our experience of other work with Michael, you could accelerate your growth by bringing team colleagues or others you mentor, so please feel free to invite them.

Our contention is that as we develop mastery in these situations, we handle everyday Leadership challenges much more easily and effectively.

We may never have to actually deal with the equivalent of a Trump or a Brexit, an MH370 or a mass outbreak of hysteria in our organisations, but if we have the skills to be able to handle ourselves in such an event, we will be much better placed to handle day-to-day matters that pop up, where people are in difficulties and our job as leader is to uncover the next steps to take that bring progress.

The skills you learn will increase the personal effectiveness of your role in Crisis Management, Disaster Recovery, Continuity of Business and Emergency Management plans.
