  • How to diagnose your current network
  • How to design and cultivate your network so it works for you, and for them

  • Grow your sphere of influence
  • Become an indispensable connector

Leader, Find Your Voice

What you do every day has a ripple effect across your entire organisation, whether you know it or not. The question is – is it the impact you want to have? Do you even know what that impact should be? Or how you can deliberately make it happen?

This session will:

  • Explore your current and potential sphere of influence in your organisation
  • Invite you to define (or refine) your purpose
  • Offer practical ways for you to make the authentic impact you want to make

If you’re a restless go-getter who wants to make a difference, this session will both provoke your thinking, and energise you.

 

Building Your Leadership Brand

You already have a brand as a leader. But is it the one you want? In today’s world, it’s not just about what we know, or even who we know. It’s now about how we show up as leaders, and how we make a difference to others. The more you are aware of how you show up and make a difference, the more deliberately influential you can be.

In this session, Digby will show you how to refine and cultivate your leadership brand so you can:

  • Convey your identity and distinctiveness as a leader
  • Communicate the value you offer
  • Stay focused on the activities that enable you to generate maximum value

 

Simplicity in Leadership Development

Why make something complicated when you can make it simple? Most people generally agree with the premise that simple is better. But when it comes to making something simple, we often struggle. This is often the case in leadership development programmes, which tend to look great on the surface, but often fail to have lasting impact.

If you’re in charge of your organisation’s leadership development, you’ll find this session energising and valuable. Digby will cover:

  • Why we tend to make things more complicated than they need to be
  • What it takes to design and build a leadership development approach that has lasting impact
  • How to identify the critical few things that make the biggest difference to leadership development in your organisation
  • How to say ‘no’ to unnecessary things and stick to the essentials
