WORKSHOP: Organisational Change Through Trust

Friday, December 01, 2017 8:30 AM



This full day workshop is apart of the Strategic Professional Development program – 9 essential workshops on Innovation Methods, Effective Leadership and Communication on Purpose brought to you in partnership by AKIN ASIA, DSIL Global, Thammasat University School of Global Studies and the Centre for Executive Education at the UN University for Peace and Conflict Studies.

Quality relationships that have been built on trust and open communication and are an important sustainable competitive advantage in organisations. The level of trust an organisation can achieve is contingent upon the employees perceptions of the company’s commitment to ability, honesty, and integrity.

This workshop will use the Liberating Structures framework as a tool for dialogue to demonstrate how to build the kind of organisation that everybody wants. We will discuss and learn how organisations communicate, how this communication affects employees and how to instil a trusting, open dialogue for greater impact.

This alternative approach is both practical and feasible because Liberating Structures are quite simple and easy to learn. They can be used by everyone at every level, from the executive suite to the grassroots. No lengthy training courses or special talents are required. Mastery is simply a matter of practice.

This workshop is open to men and women who want to develop their own skill sets and leverage their learning into actionNo previous experience is needed and all participants are welcome to bring a real-world project that they are working on!
