Read more

Often we rely on our automatic responses to people and situations, but these have been shown to be unreliable. This workshop explores new models of human connection and leadership, based on Ali Walker’s original research.

Leadership is no longer about the leader who can impress. It is about the leader who can connect. The workshop will build your leadership capacity through experiential group work and discussions.

Workshop participants will learn:

  • To identify their connection style and the styles of others.
  • The five stages of group dynamics, from disconnection to flow/high-performance.

This workshop is suitable for:

  • Current and aspiring leaders wanting to gain strategies to build high-performance teams using empathy and connection.
  • Team members wanting to learn how to be the best team player possible.
  • Anyone interested in examining and improving their interpersonal skills and promoting positive connections.
