The Art of Creating a Relational Culture in Organisations

August 7, 2017 @ 9:00 am - August 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm


More about this workshop

Imago Africa is excited and delighted to offer a 2 day corporate training workshop, facilitated by Hedy Schleifer (MA, LMHC) (USA). The focus of the training will be on the facilitation of the development of Relational Leaders in all types of organisations, including corporate, NGOs, and academic.

Hedy developed this programme in response to the call from organisational leaders for help in moving their organisations and leadership practice from driving output to harnessing collaboration, from working in silos to integrated teams, and from alienation to connection.

In the 2 days of rich experience, Hedy will cover:

  • A program for the creation of a Relational Organisation (step -by-step process and design)
  • The Pillars of a Relational Culture
  • A theoretical examination of how organisational culture flourishes under relational leadership
  • Relational skills and tools for increased creativity, increased productivity, better team cohesion, reducing conflict and absenteeism
  • The Relational Conversation, the Relational Group Dialogue, and their application
  • Moving from a problem-solving narrative to one of vision and possibility (using the Language of Abundance)

In this co-generative space, you will learn:

  • How to be a leader and a catalyst for sound, impactful relationship-enhancing skills
  • How to teach an organisation to reduce conflict and create an emotionally safe work environment
  • How to inspire a team to make effective, innovative, and co-operative decisions
  • How to guide people in the use of tools for turning mistakes into “launching pads”
  • How to create a shared vision and to inspire employees to work productively and co-operatively toward a common goal
  • How to create and maintain an atmosphere of emotional safety that will foster motivated, creative, and productive employees

If you are an agent of change, working in corporate or any organisational spaces, and you’re mandated to, or wanting to guide your client/organisation into the emerging future as relational leaders, please join us.
