These Key Skills Are Needed Now: 

The Two Secrets to Career Success Led By Chris Golis

Thursday 13th May 2021. 11:00 to 12:00 GMT

As for the first secret:
Charles Handy is best management guru the UK has produced in the last 60 year. In 1997 for its 75th Anniversary Edition the Harvard Business chose Handy as one of five gurus asked to write an article. Fortune Magazine has described him at the leading management guru of the 1990s. Charles was Chris Golis’ tutor at the London Business School and explained the first secret of career success; something he has never published in any of his books and something Chris will disclose during this webinar.

Does this sound like you?

- When you started you wanted to build a successful career but soon learnt that being passionate is not enough.
- Later with your foot on the management ladder you noticed others were promoted and wondered why?
- At times have you wondered if this is as good as it gets?

The problem is most people do not have a scientifically valid model of temperament to help them determine their own and other people’s core emotions. Emotional Intelligence is increasingly being defined as the core competency a leader and manager must have. Everyone tells you it’s important but no-one tells you a practical and scientific way to lift it.

Developing a high level of emotional intelligence is the second secret of career success.

During this FREE Webinar Chris will explain:

- The two secrets of career success.
- The importance of understanding temperament.
- Insights into the most practical temperament tool available.
- Simple ways to dramatically lift your own emotional intelligence.

More About Chris:
Chris is a graduate of Cambridge and the London Business School. His first career was in IT; he started as a trainee system engineer and finished as a Divisional General Manager. In 1980 he changed careers becoming an investment banker with Bankers Trust Australia. Chris now positions himself as Australia's expert in practical emotional intelligence teaching the 7MTF model of personality which he developed over the past 14 years.

How to Develop a High-Performance Team Led By Dave Roby

Thursday 20th May 2021. 11:00 to 12:00 GMT

Great things are rarely achieved by just one person. And great businesses are very rarely created by one person. As Heller Keller said, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”.  

Great teams rarely, if ever, happen by chance. As Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is a success”.  

If your team is not quite at the high-performance level you’d like, you may find yourself asking these questions: 

  • Are the right people in the right seats? 

  • How do I fight the acceptance of mediocrity? 

  • What is true accountability? 

  • Is there a sustainable business model in place? 

During this FREE webinar you will learn what characteristics and behaviours you generally find in a high performance in a team and how to incorporate these into your own. These include:  

  • Having trust and a belief in what the team must achieve with a purpose they can truly buy in to. 

  • Working towards the same goals. 

  • Each team member pulling their own weight. 

  • Mutual respect for individual skills. 

  • A self-organising and self-aware team. 

  • The leader knowing when to offer guidance, and when to step back. 

  • Constructively solving conflict. 

  • Each team member becoming good listeners and being able to use their own voice. 

  • Always remembering no individual is more important that the team (not even the leader). 

It's all about the people - the rest will take care of itself! 

More About Dave: 
Dave began his career as salesperson in a family business, working his way from Sales Trainer to President by the age of 30.  He developed a business growth plan which took them from 1 location to 21 locations across the US Midwest and 43 seasonal locations in 4 years. Having been bitten by the entrepreneurial bug, he purchased a small manufacturing company along with other investors and grew it from 23 people originally to 150. The company then went on to achieve #68 in the Inc. Magazine fastest-growing privately held companies sustained over a 5-year period.  After selling his stake in the manufacturing company, Dave then started his own consulting firm in the US and expanded internationally 5 years ago.
