Purpose, Leadership and Communityship for a Zero Carbon Future

with Professor Henry Mintzberg

11.30am Thursday 19th to 5pm Friday 20th September 2019. Hartwell House, Aylesbury, UK

As the reality of the climate emergency bites, every aspect of our lives – how we live, work, travel – faces radical disruption. The expectations on leaders in business and government to have the answers – to continually improve living standards whilst rapidly decarbonizing society – are higher than ever. What is an appropriate response? How do we rebalance relationships and collaborate effectively across the public, private and civil sectors to build more sustainable communities? What is the leadership needed?

In this unique, intensive 2 day workshop, Henry Mintzberg, world-renowned strategist and author of over 20 business and management classics, will share his insights on the next transformation of leadership and strategic thinking required to respond to the global crises of environmental breakdown and hyper-inequality around the world.

Don’t just do something, stand there!
Facilitated by leading thinkers on sustainability leadership, Jonathan Gosling and Alexandra Stubbings, you’ll have the opportunity to explore these questions with Henry in a small group environment with like-minded leaders, learn new ways of examining the issues and develop the relational and systemic leadership and strategy skills needed to meet the challenges of driving rapid change at scale. You’ll leave with greater clarity on the tangible actions you can take and with more of the practical skills needed to realise them.

Stepping up to go All In

The Future of business leadership
With Professor David Grayson and Dr Alexandra Stubbings

09.15-16.45 Friday 4th October 2019. Carers UK offices, 20 Great Dover Street, London (1 min from Borough Tube Station)

What are the capabilities leaders need to act with authority in the face of environmental crisis and global inequalities? How do you advocate beyond organisations to challenge the status quo and to engage others effectively for systemic change? How do we go ‘All In’?

In this intensive, one-day workshop, David and Alexandra bring together insights and experiences from sustainability pioneers with learning from Adaptive Leadership and the Talik change model. They’ll take you through the five core attributes of All In – Purpose, Culture, Plan, Collaboration and Advocacy – to help you build a rich systemic picture of your organisation today, your leadership purpose and potential, and – importantly – practical actions you’ll want to take forward. Weaving together the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of leading All In.

Senior leaders are encouraged to bring young leaders and / or civil society partners, recognising the need and benefit of broadening the diversity of voice and perspective in the group.

Individual business leader £495 + VAT
Business leader plus young leader / CSO partner £750 + VAT
Individual young leader / CSO partner £350 + VAT

With Dr. Alexandra Stubbings and Certified LSP Facilitator Lawrence Stubbings

LEGO SERIOUS PLAY?! That can’t be a real thing, surely? What can LEGO* models tell me about my business?

They’re all valid questions, and we hear you (we didn’t believe it ourselves until we tried it)! Yes, we could try to explain it, we could tell you the science, but this is SERIOUS PLAY and the best way to learn about LSP is to do it!

Following the success of our workshop in London last November, several of you asked us to bring our LEGO Brickfast home to Milton Keynes. In this brief, two hour introduction you’ll experience first-hand how Talik does LEGO SERIOUS PLAY*. Combining the LSP method with elements from Adaptive Leadership and the Talik change model, we’ll dive into personal purpose and the difference we can make. You’ll get hands-on with the bricks, see the LSP method in practice and all this while exploring how you can be the change you want to see in the world. This isn’t just LSP, this is Talik LSP.

Places are strictly limited to just 25 participants. London sold out quickly, so book now!

Participants £39.50 inc VAT
