TIME TO THINK FOCUS ON THAT WHICH YOU CANNOT SEE

In July, Deborah Hulme was invited to join an exclusive line-up of speakers at the IOIC's Soapbox in a Selfie Age Summer Garden Party.

Deborah's session raised some interesting points for self, leadership and performance generally, highlighting that:


  • We tend to focus on changing the visible (behaviour)
  • We don't often think about supporting people and teams to think in a better way
  • Doing so allows people the space to process information and make their own connections for deeper levels of understanding
  • This has implications for how we approach and plan communications including timing and space
Read our blog for more information on the themes covered, or get in touch to find out more about the strategic support we provide for internal communications teams, leadership, HR and organisational change professionals.

I'M A GENIUS WHY WON'T ANYONE BELIEVE ME?

Have you ever felt frustrated by others’ inability to see the genius of your idea? Or baffled that having apparently presented a compelling case to all the right people and those people making all the right noises, your idea still didn’t quite get off the ground?

Jennie Flower's session at the IOIC North's Better Connected event in June 2017 covered how to:


  • Communicate ideas effectively to ensure your voice is heard
  • Identify who is most likely to champion an idea and how to get them on board
  • Identify who and what is most likely to derail an initiative and tips to help manage that
Read our blog for more information on the themes covered. For further details on how emotional intelligence and neuroscience can help us to better understand stakeholder behaviours and motivations to inform the successful implementation of organisational change, please get in touch.
