Is There Room for Empathy in Heavy Industry?

Of all the complexities within our modern workplaces driven by uncertainty, globalisation and technology, the most challenging factor in driving and sustaining performance remains leading people. There are few things that derail a project or expose an organisation to risk more than unmotivated or disengaged employees. Building high-performing teams require great strategies and engaging people leaders. Leaders who build trust, provide effective feedback, and are able to create a committed team focused on shared outcomes. The key to building these high-performing teams is empathic leadership.

Daniel will provide simple frameworks, practical tactics, and specific examples of how everyone can lead with empathy to drive performance. Empathy is a skill that people of any age, from any industry, can learn, develop and harness to improve their leadership and performance. This presentation will provide clear steps for implementing new ways to lead with empathy.

WORKSHOP: High-Performance Leadership: Building Trust & Performance Through Empathy & Values-Based Leadership

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader." - John Quincy Adams
Leadership is one of the hardest and most critical skills we need in the world today. We need to foster leaders who create trusted relationships, build understanding and inspire curiosity that empowers performance. This workshop supports people in developing the skills, tools, capabilities, and strategies to become trusted leaders worth following.

Foundations of High-Performance Leadership
Trust - A fundamental aspect of human social interaction, trust forms the basis for relationships to thrive. Without trust, decisions are made cautiously, information is withheld, and leaders fail to have the tough conversations required to build a committed high-performing team.
Understanding - Each department and team member plays an important role in the success of the group. Too often though, leaders focus solely on individual roles and responsibilities. Leaders who foster understanding require all members of the team to know how their role and the role of their peers contribute to the overall success of the wider group.
Curiosity - To develop a high-performance culture, we need to be constantly encouraging others to improve. Curiosity is leaders actively seeking conflicting views. Leading with empathy and being an inspiring force that encourages each person to look for a better way forward.
