Strategic thinking is a key competency for leadership positions. But what is strategic thinking? How does it differ from day in, day out tactical management? How can you develop a strategic mindset when you are in the trenches? In this one hour introductory course, participants will: 1) Understand the difference between operational, tactical and strategic thinking 2) Link into the future goals and priorities of your manager, your colleagues, and your organizations 3) Identify strategic opportunities to build relationships with key players and develop a strategic mindset to move you forward in your leadership career
You spend a lifetime learning things, but when was the last time you stopped to think about how you learn? You might be surprised about how much of our natural learning ability is unwittingly damaged or suppressed by the very educational system that was designed to "teach" us. In this fascinating session Julian will reveal how to deliver "brain friendly" training that sticks, including memory techniques and sensory perception. You and your learners will absorb more and retain information far longer when you use these ideas. Julian will show you different ways to engage the human brain to create a more natural way to learn. You will gain new ways to unlock the learning potential of your people, and have fun at the same time!

I'm an experienced Leadership Consultant and Trainer, Speaker, Executive and Life Coach and author with 30+ years experience in developing leadership potential and empowerment, supporting people at individual or organizational level to develop confidence, leadership and people skills; empowering them to see themselves as the solution. I've also founded Recovering Workaholics. A serious ski accident in 1983, forced me to use a wheelchair. As the Head Teacher (Principle)of a large school I was unable to access most classrooms. I had to look at the bigger picture and develop innovative ways to motivate and engage staff so that they were self reliant, understood how to deliver excellence and take responsibility for their own performance. The approach was successful in maximizing both personal development and leadership potential. It's also why in the 20 years of leading the school, it was acknowledged as one of Ofsted's "Best Schools" twice and included on the HMI honours list as one of England's most successful schools and had a string of quality and kite marks. The approaches have proved just as successful in a wide range of business settings. Books include "Kick Start Your Career", "Manage Your Staff More Effectively" and "Chariots On Fire". www.ginagardinerassociates.co.uk www.recoveringworkaholics.com

Sometimes we are racing with the wind, and other times we are lighting a candle for a loved one. Sometimes we have to learn a new way to live. It's a celebration because we are here, breathing life with a cup half-full. We learn from the celebrations and in turn, bring joy to others while keeping watch for the wonderful.
