Recommendations for the practice of leadership have changed significantly in the past decade, calling for an end to the “great man (woman) theory" - where followers expect the leader to waltz in, provide concrete answers and save the day.  Leaders today must balance the management of current performance with difficult decisions around organiational renewal in environments of complexity, uncertainty and change.

 

Leaders at every level must create meaning and purpose around "who we are", a collective vision of "where we are going" and institute practices, systems and structures to harness the energy and talents of their people for "how to get there".

Some of the possible topics that can be included in Dr. Lytle’s leadership workshops:

 

  • Leading from within

    • Exploring the role of emotions & emotional intelligence in leadership

    • Understanding the impact of your thoughts, feelings & behaviours on others

    • Identifying & playing to your strengths

    • Creating your leadership agenda & leadership value proposition

  • Leadership impact & influence

    • Driving connection & performance with empathy

    • Building resilience, mindfulness & emotional self-control

    • Developing personal presence

    • Connecting & engaging through empowering others

    • Delivering performance-based feedback

    • Succeeding in difficult conversations

  • Adaptive leadership

    • Understanding the difference between technical & adaptive leadership challenges

    • Managing the tension between performance management & organisational renewal

  • Leading change

    • The role of vision & mission in leading change

    • Inspiring performance in others

    • Creating positive & thriving organisational cultures

  • Leading diversity

    • Building inclusive organisational cultures

    • Challenging unconscious bias

 

Dr. Lytle’s workshops focus on the broad range of knowledge, skills and competencies required for successful leadership practice, with content and process tailored to the unique needs of each client. She is well versed in cutting-edge leadership theory and practice as well as the many different approaches to leadership education that can be combined for maximum impact. Methods can include: 360 degree feedback instruments on leadership style and/or competencies, personality inventories, action-learning activities, role plays, small and large group discussions, content sessions, case-in-point learning and individual and small group coaching. Especially in the leadership arena, Dr. Lytle focuses on the development of concrete, specific action plans with accountability for each participant to maximise the sustainability of behavioural change.

 

As in all of Dr. Lytle’s training and development initiatives, she strives to deliver value to her clients beyond the fun and informative workshop, with the objective of creating visible behavioural change for each participant. There is no question that sustainable behavioural change in any competency area is not easy, requiring practice and repetition to reprogram the neuronal pathways in the brain. In all of her workshops, Dr. Lytle attacks this problem head-on, encouraging participants to engage in the practice of “doing something differently” through the creation of concrete, specific and realistic action plans for which she promotes accountability. In addition, she works with clients to diagnose the structures, systems and environment surrounding participants that will support or inhibit the desired changes. Follow up is critical and Dr. Lytle works with clients to create sustainable organisational or peer support structures to maximise the application of learning and knowledge far after the workshop is over.
