|Welcome and Introduction||General introduction from trainer followed by a senior member of the leadership team setting the scene for the learning over the next two days.|
|Aims and Objectives||These are detailed in the learning outcomes.|
|Ice-Breaker||Delegates introduce themselves and take part in a short activity to break the ice.|
|Culture Maturity Ladder®||The Culture of Care Maturity Ladder® is an evolutionary ladder where the organization becomes more mature as trust and accountability increase and the safety culture becomes increasingly informed.|
|Informed Culture||This section builds on the cultural maturity ladder and looks at how an organization can develop an informed safety culture (James Reason) by having four main pillars in place:|
- Reporting Culture
- Just Culture
- Learning Culture
- Flexible Culture
|Culture of Denial||Being able to identify warning signs and know what factors make up a safety culture of denial helps an organization combat these and build resilience.|
|High Reliability Organizations||A look at what High Reliability Organizations (HRO) are and what they do that makes them so resilient.|
|Chronic Unease||What is chronic unease? Mindfulness in leadership is important if leaders are going to spot potential safety performance problems and issues.|
|Welcome and Recap||Introduction to day 2 and recap of information covered on previous day.|
|Leadership Excellence||To introduce leadership excellence, delegates are asked to think about what makes a person memorable or have the biggest impact. This then leads into the exercise where the skills and qualities of leadership excellence are examined.|
|Emotional Intelligence||Emotional Intelligence (EI) is said to be more important than IQ. This section gives an overview of the four sections of EI and invites delegates to consider areas for improvement.|
|Leadership Styles||An authentic leader knows that to be effective they need to be able to use a range of different leadership styles and for these to be matched to the right situation and the right people. Here we look at Daniel Goleman’s 6 primal leadership styles: commanding, pacesetting, affiliative, democratic, coaching and visionary.|
|Communication||Leaders need to communicate effectively. We start with a general overview of what makes up communication.|
Listening - one of the main skills of effective communication. Active listening skills are essential.
Questioning skills – asking the right questions at the right time is vital for an authentic leader.
|Webmaster||This is a practical exercise where delegates are asked to put together interconnecting lengths of ropes working to a plan. The aim of the exercise is for the delegates to apply the skills discussed over the last 2 days.|
|Personal Action||The group will consider what they personally are going to do to develop their abilities as a leader.|
