Description of Webinars

Webinar 1: Planning & Decision Making

In today’s ever-changing marketplace, decisions and how we make decisions is critical. Participants will be introduced to a unique decision-making model, designed using a number of military decision-making models, and adapted to make a model will cater for the needs of modern businesses. It can be used at all levels of an organisation and by all industries.

The webinar will demonstrate how you start this process by analysing the task in hand, develop courses of action (COAs), analyse the COAs and go through different methods to evaluate the options. It all leads into the team providing a manager or board with a decision brief which captures all of the key elements to the process. This enables the senior leaders in an organisation to make decisions based on the critical data captured throughout the process. This method supports companies to pivot as the marketplace changes as the research conducted in the planning phase supports decision-makers to make quicker informed decisions.

 

Webinar 2: Change Management & Organisational Culture

Change management is an area that is often overlooked in businesses. When a company implements a new strategy then it is change management. If change management is approached in the wrong way it will lead to increased resistance in the organisation, less support and this can impact the success of the new initiative. This can result in what would have been a positive move for the company turning into a negative and it can affect the culture in a workplace.

The webinar will discuss what is Organisation culture and why it matters so much. It will touch on the qualities of a strong organisational culture and how we can improve on the culture that currently exists.

 

Webinar 3: Building Resilience in Teams & Continuous Improvement

The webinar will discuss the key elements to building a highly effective team. Also discussed will be resilience, empathy, humility, teamwork and how they are critical to creating a highly effective team.

Continuous improvement has become a key component to the success of organisations. Many models or approaches exist across different sectors.  Participants will be introduced to a simple ‘lessons learned’ method where there are 4 steps to improving what happened – Observation, Discussion, Conclusion and Recommendation. You observe something happening (good or bad), you discuss with the team what happened, how it happened, why etc then you come up with a conclusion, followed by a recommendation.
