Logos

Logos is a rich, experiential programme designed to help people communicate more powerfully as leaders. Delegates will learn how to engage effectively with their organisations, understand themselves at a deeper level, grow in confidence at conducting high-impact conversations and create performance improvements back at work.

Leaders communicate. They attend meetings, make phone calls and exchange emails. They motivate others by their words, providing context so that people can make meaning of their work. This improves performance. The intelligence and relevance of a leader’s conversations determine his or her impact on an organisation.

The skill of selecting and framing the right conversations is of paramount importance for a leader. Many focus on the technical aspects of work and are pulled into narrow frames of thinking, becoming blinkered to a wider perspective. When relational, political, systemic and psychological issues are ignored leaders can find that even the best commercial acumen is ineffective.

On Logos, we broaden delegates’ perspectives by offering insights into how organisations behave and how leaders can be empowered or constrained by the chaos and complexity they have to lead. We help delegates assert their commitments through powerful conversations and we provide resources that combat dysfunctional habits, sustaining aligned and dynamic communication back at work.

'In terms of self improvement and awareness I don't see any other provider of such interesting and useful content and all this delivered with a deeply personal touch.'

Designed for leaders who:

  • Need to understand themselves better and manage the human element of leadership with greater impact.
  • Want to become more effective at communicating.
  • Want to engage more effectively with the chaos and emergent organisational dynamics in their businesses.

Delegates will learn how to:

  • Work with chaos more effectively and energetically.
  • Frame different types of leadership conversations.
  • Understand their own dysfunctional behaviour.
  • Enroll others in their vision of the future.
  • Lead with authenticity and commitment.
  • Build trust with other teammates.
  • Create action in the business.
  • Bring closure to prolonged difficulties.
  • Build a network that will help them sustain their performance.

The programme

Day 1: Organisational Leadership

Organisations do not behave predictably or efficiently like machines. They behave like chaotic living systems. Understanding how mechanistic processes fit in organic systems and dealing with the resultant paradoxes, helps a leader engage with the reality of organisational life. Putting boundedness around projects so that they do not become anarchic and lighting “bushfire” experiments can create quantum shifts in culture and performance.

Day 2: Self Leadership

Sometimes leaders become embroiled in politics and behave destructively to avoid unpalatable emotional experiences. This is called ‘running a racket’. Taking responsibility by having real conversations results in sustainable collaborative relationships and a healthier organisational culture. By learning how to present a more authentic version of themselves and building more open platforms for agreements, leaders can relax into a more potent style of engagement.

Day 3: Relational Leadership

On day 3, we help delegates practice the conversations designed to build and support productive relationships at work. There are four essential conversations that a leader needs to be able to have: conversations about Relationship, Possibility, Action and Closure. Learning how to frame these accurately and execute them powerfully has a huge impact on those people influenced by the leader. The avoidance of any of these conversations generally leads to derailment and organisational dysfunction.

Logos is a culmination of 20 years of leadership team interventions in some of the largest and most influential organisations in the world. It is pragmatic and relevant to the chaotic maelstrom and information barrage affecting leaders today.

Other open programmes

Cathexis

This programme exposes delegates to new coaching techniques and provides insights into the layered landscape of the human psyche. It takes each person on their own journey, familiarising them with three levels of awareness as they explore their issues. This results in more meaningful coaching interventions. Attendees begin to recognise at which level their clients are experiencing a challenge. This allows them to apply the right coaching technique for the right level of thinking.
