Sue Mitchell's 2022 talks & topics

Embracing Diversity to build trust, strong relationships and high performance

Solutions Focus facilitation for overcoming issues hampering implementation of our objectives

Where are we now?

Identify ‘AS IS’ – mid-term in the implementation of the strategy 2018-2021

  • Identify objectives that are not yet achieved. Brief analysis to understand the barriers and issues and find instances when they were less of an issue.
  • Recognise and celebrate achievements so far and analyse what made them work well.

Define the future and plan to achieve it

  • Living the Strategic Vision – what does the endpoint in 2021 look like?
  • Re-commit to our purpose and strategic vision

Create the bridge from ‘as is’ to reach the vision, taking into account what is at stake and external forces that both drive and restrain the management team.

Clearly understand what is at stake if there is no change and what happens when we succeed.

  • Identify indicators and evidence of success, how we will recognise them, and who else needs to recognise them.
  • What can we do more of that has worked well already?
  • How can we make use of what we already have?
  • What are the possibilities – past, present and future?
  • What leadership activities are needed to inspire, motivate and engage our people and external stakeholders to make this happen?

The Power of Positive

This fun, highly interactive masterclass gives your managers the essential ingredients to create the positive environment and ‘can-do’ culture for working successfully together and to create high performing teams themselves. It is ideal when your people could do with a burst of positive energy to revitalise a project or manage changes.

Working in pairs, small groups and as a whole team, we look at ways to build positive thinking and emotions into everyday life at work, making it easier to work more effectively together and raising wellbeing and engagement.

Evidence from neuroscience shows that feeling positive, and especially safe, unstressed and unthreatened, opens up access to the higher reasoning cognitive part of brain which leads to more creative thinking, inspiration, new ideas, solution finding, problem solving, focus and improved social interaction, all of which support higher performance at work. When you feel negative or stressed, your brain literally shuts down access to the cognitive areas of the brain, resulting in poor focus, feelings of overwhelm, interpersonal conflicts, inability to listen to different perspectives and poor decision making, all of which have a negative impact on performance and productivity.
