    In this moment of profound uncertainty, people need, more than ever, prepared leaders to guide and reassure them.

    Empathic and communicative Leadership, capable to drive organizations along a path of transformation in uncertainty can make the difference, in this though moment when all our belief, hopes and projects for the future seem to be “on hold”.

    During this webinar we will share our experience on the theme of Leadership in times of uncertainty and change. We will bring examples of what’s going on in Europe at the time of Coronavirus reporting the dynamics we are observing here during this complex, and unprecedented situation and their impacts on organizations. We will discuss together what leaders can do by leveraging skills such as active listening, empathy and effective communication to drive their people through this situation.

    We will look at how leveraging direct, personal and empathic communication, leaders can spread a sense of shared purpose in which all the people who are part of the organization can be recognized.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

    • How employees are reacting in this situation of uncertainty and what challenges await leaders, as seen in the field in Europe;
    • Why great empathic conversations are the secret weapon of leaders to guide their organization in a period of complexity and uncertainty;
    • What are the “missteps” to avoid during conversations;
    • What are the key actions to put into practice to make the conversations that matter really effective.

    The strengths approach is based upon the belief that each of us have a unique set of gifts, talents, and strengths. These strengths are defined as “patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior” (Clifton, 1998) that impact how we operate, function in teams, and solve problems together. Rather than a focus on fixing weaknesses, the strengths approach invests in learning and applying strength as tools to overcome our weaknesses.

    Key Takeaways

    • Identify your natural strengths and talents to gain an understanding of what you do best everyday.
    • Learn strategies for applying your strengths.

    At Tangram we believe that calling L&D a “support function” is a total misnomer. You don’t just “support” the business — you are a vital part of the business and a key contributor to the overall strategy! Being pigeonholed as a support function can keep learning teams from recognizing their full potential, so in this session we’ll invite you to think about L&D differently. We’ll challenge some ingrained behaviors and share new places to focus your energy so you can magnify your efforts and increase your impact.

    In this session, you will:

    • Get inspired by real-world examples of each bold move
    • Learn techniques to drive change in each area
    • Evaluate your organization to see where you should focus next
