Simon runs masterclasses and workshops on future-focused leadership
It’s your leaders and managers who are at the cutting edge of diverse expectations of work. How they adapt and behave will directly shape the engagement and performance of your employees – and shape your organisation so that it can remain competitive, adaptive and attractive to diverse talent.
Simon delivers future-focused leadership masterclasses and workshops for managers, giving them the latest insights and practical tools so they can be better leaders when faced by rapidly changing expectations and ways of working.
Benefits of the leadership masterclass:

Lead diverse talent
Engage and motivate the 22 year old hipster AND the experienced old hands.
Confidence to succeed

Learn what tools and collaborative ways of working are available now and what’s coming next.
Comfort with complexity

… and biases, and how they could impact what you do and perform.
Practical tools and tips
Super practical leadership skills and ideas you can test out with your team tomorrow.
A masterclass or workshop might be a three-day immersive programme, a one-day off-site, a two-hour interactive segment as part of a longer programme or a 45 minute lunch & learn session. Whichever it is, Simon’s relaxed style, ability to read the room, identify themes and see the bigger picture means sessions are memorable, practical, appropriate … which means they give value for money.
His phenomenal memory for models and tools – many that result from his own research and experience – allow him to use the perfect anecdote or model to help delegates understand, learn and make practical changes in the work place. These changes might be seismic, fundamental changes, or smaller tweaks to effect big change.

“I have worked with Simon on numerous occasions. We ran a sophisticated Leadership Program and Simon was a regular contributor, running a very good, thought provoking session on the views/expectations of those individuals just coming into the work environment – and how best to communicate/align with them. Simon’s segment of the program was always well received – very positive feedback. He always delivered.”
