Talk Title – ‘Correlative Leadership – A Framework for Leading in 2017 and Beyond’
With the context of rapid external change, the need to adapt your business model and then take your people with you is key. Leadership credentials are demanded from highly changing workplace cultures leading to a re-boot of the traditional models of leadership performance and the collapsing of organisational pyramids.
Since his appointment as MD in April 2013, Brother UK has transformed itself into one of the UK’s leading employers, renowned for its employee engagement and apprenticeship programmes.
Brother UK is a Platinum Investors in People (IIP) workplace and was recently crowned the best of the best at the IIP national awards recognising the work it has undertaken to build an adaptable workplace.
Underpinning this success has been the leadership journey that Phil Jones has been on for the last fifteen years.
But what has it taken to build such a culture and leadership style? What attributes are needed to lead a multi-generational workforce? What have been the challenges along the way?
During his talk, Phil Jones will share the components of his self-developed ‘Correlative Leadership’ framework as a template for Leadership in 2017 and beyond.
Key topics covered will include: –
• The Four Pillars of Correlative Leadership
• The importance of having your personal purpose well defined and clear
• The role of situational awareness as part of your self-care routine
• How your digital footprint is now key in recruiting, developing and nurturing people
• The role of compassion and care in culture.
