Staying Truly Connected – Weeks Three and Four
More, better, consistent: Collaborative working and feedback in supporting people working remotely
Welcome to Weeks Three and Four!
For the next half of the programme, we’ll build on the change you’re planning for your team or department’s future. We’ll work on how to make sure you bring people with you in a climate of trust, modelling engaging practices in giving and receiving feedback. We’ll also help you to plan for how to gain consensus and commitment through working online in genuinely collaborative ways.
The Hours and linked activities are:
|Hour 1||Why you need to prioritise feedback||Identifying barriers to giving feedback and turning these into enablers|
|Hour 2||Planning for feedback conversations||Why feedback is important, and why we should prioritise it now|
|Hour 3||Reconceptualising meetings||Outlining your intentions for a meeting with particular outcomes in mind|
|Hour 4||Values, aspirations and your leadership manifesto||Articulating how you and your team will achieve change together|
|Hour 5||Meet with your Staying Truly Connected colleagues in Zoom||10-11.15am GMT, Wednesday 16 December 2020|
Here’s a brief story about an insight I gained a few years ago into the importance of feedback.
Feedback enables colleagues to develop action plans to become more effective in their work, and builds a culture of trust.
Hour 3: Reconceptualising meetings
Once I ran a workshop in which I started by asking participants to close their eyes and visualise the worst meeting they had ever witnessed in a university.
Articulating the values and aspirations that shape your leadership.
Hour 5: Meet virtually at 10am GMT on Zoom
We’ll send you this link via email during Week Four. Please allow up to 1 hr 15 minutes for this final activity.
