3-day workshop

The process of learning develops through the 7 different events of the workshop

Opening Plenary (OP): introduces the workshop and the staff to participants. 

Organisational Role Analysis (ORA): is an opportunity for each participant to analyse in depth within a small group his/her own leadership experience, using examples and current dilemmas from work, with a view to understanding these better, gaining insight into how formative experiences of authority may have fed into current leadership behaviour. 
Each ORA will work with a consultant.

Organisational Event (OE): opens and closes in Plenary (OEP) and is a structured experience in which participants may take up the role of leader and/or follower and try out new or different ways of leading others. 
Consultancy will be made available.

Review Group (RG): provides an opportunity to reflect on events so far in a small group setting.

Insight Group (IG): is a meeting of all participants and staff to share thoughts and ideas about how each has taken up their roles in the workshop so far.

Application Group (AG): provides an opportunity to think about how to take the learning about leadership and followership back into the workplace.

Closing Plenary (CP): is an opportunity collectively to discuss the experience of the workshop and its usefulness in developing leadership capacity.
