Fall 2021 – Virtual

The Leader’s Discipline™: A Coaching Approach to Leadership

Years from now, a collection of extraordinary characters reconnect to a pivotal time they shared working together with you. In passing, they reflect on the quiet way you served them, the challenges you trusted them with and the poise you displayed under pressure. They begin to realize that the way you conducted yourself invited each of them – to occupy the ground and affect the field as leaders themselves.

Participants will

  • experience practical models to increase employee performance, learning and engagement;
  • practice and build ability in coaching emerging leaders and teams; and
  • increase confidence in giving and receiving honest feedback.

Feedback about Roy Group virtual sessions

— Really loved the trio work in breakout rooms. It was really easy to get comfortable with the two other people quickly, and to be able to practice what we learned. The entire execution was put on so well…

— Technology was seamless. Fast paced, well organized, nice and congenial leadership.

— The practice sessions were fantastic. The structure and the process of having ample opportunity for feedback and mentor training was wonderful.

— Being able to put some of the concepts to use right away is a great learning environment for me.

Opportunity in Conflict™: Engaging Difficult Conversations

You have realized that the way you conduct yourself affects the situation around you. In a difficult situation, you trust yourself to be in the moment and see clearly what needs to be addressed. You have found a way of being honest, so that others find theirs. You know that there are many sides to a story and more than one solution to intractable problems. This is why people trust you with the tough stuff.

Participants will

  • practice skills for analyzing and transforming difficult situations;
  • develop an understanding of interest-based negotiation and how to do it;
  • gain new strategies in preparing for and navigating through difficult conversations; and
  • develop abilities in knowing what to listen for and how to respond.

FOCUS ON SELF FOR TEAMS:

Exploring Personal and Team Leadership and Development

Focus on Self for Teams provides an opportunity for a cohort of team leaders to individually and collectively reflect on their life story, philosophy of leadership and future direction in order to gain clarity on the stories they would like to create in the world around them. (See also the Focus on Self article by Ian Chisholm.)

MODULE 1: THE LEADER’S SPARK

8 hours

Enhanced by the use of a sophisticated psychometric tool that allows for a greater complexity of character, The Leader’s Spark invites each member of a team to explore and identify opportunities for raising their game. Then the learning shifts from the individual to the team, where teams learn to analyze and reflect on their shared dynamics in order to uncover the opportunities for higher functioning together.

Participants will

  • explore ways to bolster collaboration, reduce conflict and create more secure, stronger relationships;
  • develop increased personal awareness on who they are and how they show up;
  • gain insights on how their conduct and preferences make an impact on their team and organization;
  • make important choices about personal direction, conduct and practices;
  • offer, share and receive support from other leaders; and
  • construct a plan for personal and professional development moving forward.

  • receive feedback from those experiencing their leadership;
  • make important choices about personal direction, conduct and practices;

Part One of The Leader’s Gift is a series of reflective assignments together with a feedback process informed by up to 30 colleagues that results in a focused description of the leader’s edge/ strength/ talent. Part Two requires leaders to organize their efforts and align their leadership with their best work to amplify personal and team performance.

Module 3: The Leader’s Practice (5 hours)

The Leader’s Practice incorporates a 360° feedback process, examining an individual’s leadership practices comprehensive of both quantitative and qualitative feedback from and for the leaders on the team. Integration through leadership development conversations support interpretation of results. Feedback is integrated with previous modules through self-evaluation to team conversation, to reveal the best use of focus, energy and process relative to the leadership challenges ahead.

Refinding the Future 2021: A Leader’s Discipline™ Recharge

Prerequisite: The Leader’s Discipline

Years from now, leaders will be sharing their internal, private, perhaps even secret experiences of this disorienting time.

They will share the feeling of being in over their heads — and of letting go of control as social, economic, political and emotional landscapes spun and shifted in their personal and professional lives. They will be piecing together the way this meteor storm of forces ruptured the bedrock of how they experienced their own leadership. They will speak of the shortfalls they faced inside themselves: not enough certainty, not enough belief, not enough vision, not enough horsepower. And they will confide in each other about how they doubted themselves.

Then the conversation will turn to the characters who stepped up in the story of their lives. The people who were calm and focused and steady for them. The ones who were patient and understanding — and who created the space for courage, conviction and imagination to emerge. They will talk about how the example of these characters now influences the way that they show up for others.

And they will call these people Mentors.

 


Since 2004, Roy Group has deployed an accelerated learning experience called The Leader’s Discipline to introduce leaders to a coaching approach. It is an experience that sticks with leaders. It informs how they operate going forward and how they use their responsibility to invite the finest selves of others to make their finest contributions.

Unintentionally, it has positioned thousands of leaders across the public, private and social sectors to stand out in times of great uncertainty — like now.

Refinding the Future 2021 is a special four-part series designed for graduates of The Leader’s Discipline who wish to step up for their teams, their colleagues, their families and their communities. It uses core precepts from The Leader’s Discipline to anchor new and innovative methods for inviting human potential at a time when we need it in play. And it offers some useful new tools that Roy Group has been deploying with leaders, helping them to stay resilient while leading through complexity.

Chapter 1: ‘Leading Through Complexity’
How can leaders be expected to lead when no-one knows what the right answers are? How can we help leaders go from a mindset of solving to one of resolving? What is the role of leaders when there is no choice but to fail fast and often, in order to find a way forward?

Chapter 2: ‘Practice and Resiliency’
What must our coaching be aware of in the months to come? What is the role that feedback must play for teams and leaders as they enter into new arenas? Why must we help leaders learn from their experience, as it emerges?

Chapter 3: ‘Wise Counsel’
What gets in the way of leaders asking for help? How can we proactively entangle those we serve in networks of those who can help them? How can ritual provide a bridge from isolation to community?

Chapter 4: ‘The Gods of Time’
What themes in what we face are timeless? What are new? As leaders ourselves, how will we conduct ourselves, going forward?

The Event

8 hours (4 sessions x 2 hours)

Thursdays, 2021 January 14–February 4
11:30-1:30pm PST / 12:30-2:30pm MST

Participants must commit to all sessions.

Outcomes

Through attending this series, participants will

  • come to understand the uniqueness of our times, and what that means for those providing Mentorship;
  • discern the difference between clear, complicated, complex and chaotic systems and the leadership approaches most effective within each;
  • experience ideas, approaches and tools that they can use with their teams; and
  • engage in leadership ‘drills’ to practice skills previously introduced.

Feedback about Roy Group virtual sessions

— The breakout rooms were excellent — really valued the opportunity to connect with leaders from other programs and get their coaching/feedback on my dilemmas.

— Technology was seamless. Fast paced, well organized, nice and congenial leadership.

— I liked that each of the 4 sessions had a different theme and that time was well managed. …The breakout sessions really added value to these 4 sessions — that’s what made it worthwhile.

— Being able to put some of the concepts to use right away is a great learning environment for me.
