MEET YOUR MASTERCLASS SPEAKERS

Nicole's Masterclass - The Pragmatic Myth of Work

Work has long been thought of as a pragmatic environment, where cool heads, logic and facts rule. But anywhere that humans congregate involve unseen forces that play out on a day to day basis and can shape our perception and experience of the work place. It is easy to blame a culture or environment but there are many tools at our disposal to deploy once we are aware of the true dynamics between people at work and how illogical, energy-based and unwritten our behaviour is. This session will explore some big human brain explosions from personal experiences and seek to provide advice on how to handle the fact that everyone is as emotionally-based as the next.

Ben's Masterclass - What my sporting heroes have taught me about leadership

There are many parallels between leadership in sport and business. In the case of Sir Alex Ferguson (former manager of Manchester United FC), he built his success by creating solid foundations within the organisation. Building his team not for short term gains but for long term success by investing in his people. Once that success had been generated, he didn’t sit back and admire his work, he rebuilt his teams to develop and become better. He kept the hunger for success and results alive by setting new goals and leading the way. He set high standards and held everyone accountable to them.
You cannot simply apply these elements and be successful, it also requires the ability to lead your people. When we break leadership down to its simplest form it is about Influence. To generate long term sustained success you must be able to positively influence your team.

However, sport isn’t just about team sports displaying leadership characteristics that we can apply to business. Martina Navratilova, a Tennis player who has won more Grand Slam titles than Serena Williams, displayed incredible leadership skills throughout her career, and continues to work with many charities and organisations today. Before she was 25 Martina defected from her native Czechoslovakia, became the first prominent sports star to openly announce that they were gay and won Wimbledon. A lot to deal with at such a young age, yet Navratilova continued to lead herself and others with her Resilience, Influence, determination, and winning mentality.

There are many others that I will talk about on the day, all of whom have tremendous leadership capabilities that have influenced my career.

Nancy & Kate's Masterclass - Unconscious Bias

Understand the fundamental concepts for understanding diversity and inclusion. We will unpack the basics that are crucial first steps for addressing and creating full expression within workplaces.

Identity —what is social identity? How does our identity shape the way we experience the world? What does it mean to bring our whole-selves to work?

Privilege — what is privilege and why does it make us feel uncomfortable when we hear the word? Why do we have to talk about privilege and how it relates to power in the workplace?

Discrimination— what does discrimination mean, really? How are power and privilege related to discrimination?

Cycle of socialisation — how do we learn stereotypes? Where do our unconscious biases actually come from?

It takes time to learn and internalise these concepts, we will provide a high-level overview only in this session.
