In this fast paced and ever changing world leaders may find they only connect to talk about strategic and organisational issues, rarely making time for themselves.
At Élan, we create Leadership Thinking Spaces for leaders to connect with peers and talk, reflect and explore experiences, issues and areas that are on their mind. We do this for leadership teams as well as leadership groups.
These safe spaces are where leaders can talk about and explore what they are experiencing, the challenges they are facing and how they are feeling.
For leadership teams
In this fast paced and ever changing world senior teams may find they only connect to talk about strategic and organisational issues, rarely making time for themselves to develop as a strong and cohesive team – and maximising their leadership potential.
Bringing leadership teams together in thinking spaces allows them to take time from the strategic and tactical to reconnect, reflect, explore and create together.
Leadership thinking spaces build safe, trusted and supportive environments where teams can reflect on their own dynamics, develop a learning space through reflecting on current and past events, and foster a highly creative process through exploring solutions and new possibilities.
For leadership groups
Leadership can feel isolating, especially with fewer days working in an office. Here Leadership Thinking Spaces for leadership groups offers leaders the opportunity to meet, taking time from their role to connect with peers to talk, reflect and explore experiences, issues and areas that are on their minds. In these safe, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential spaces leaders can share what is going on for them as well as tap into the experience, knowledge and wisdom in the group. The focus of these groups is on each member, supporting them in their role, rather than resolving organisational issues.
Through coming together in these thinking groups, leaders co-create a space that is positive, creative and forward looking.
