Description

PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT

• This suite forms part of the Leicester Leader offer which sets out a new leadership culture of continuous development and improvement to help change the way people feel about working for the Council.

• We would expect the event to provide some theoretical, challenging, even research based content to get managers and leaders thinking about what other organisations are doing when they handle current problems and plan for future.

• Leicester City Council managers should receive an insight into the successful leadership practices of some contemporary organisations.

AS A RESULT OF THIS EVENT, DELEGATES WILL BE ABLE TO

• Managers will have acquired knowledge that allows them to consider where Leicester City Council is and where it needs to be in order to be a more successful organisation.

AREAS TO BE INCLUDED

• Identifying successful contemporary organisations: what can LCC learn from them?

• What is effective leadership looking like in other organisations in 2012?

• What can we learn from models of leadership behaviour in general – and those successful organisations in particular?

• What are the components of effective leadership?

• How are contemporary organisations handling and overcoming the current climate?

• Models of leadership behaviour: some of the strengths and weaknesses.

• What makes for sustainable leadership in contemporary organisations?

• Leadership in the public sector: what LCC leaders can learn.
