Derby Business School: Time to Think Workshops

Date(s) - November 27 2019
10:00am - 4:00pm

University of Derby Enterprise Centre

Derby Business School is launching a new series of workshops from Autumn 2019 entitled “Time to Think”


·        Time to step back and think about important issues is the rarest commodity in our fast moving, changing workplace

·        This series of workshops will give participants a focussed space to think, debate and create.

·        It will provide individuals with a new perspective and some practical ideas for implementation

Workshop Series

There are 4 workshops in the series that can be taken separately, however it is recommended that they are booked as a series as the learning builds from workshop to workshop to give an holistic overview of workplace wellbeing from the perspective of leadership and management.

Introductory Workshop

Building the Leader You Really Want to Be: Using the theory of metaphor construction with the building of individual leadership models using plastic bricks, this powerful thinking process gives you space to challenge your current leadership style and start to construct the profile of the leader you really want to be

Workshop 1

Time to think about… Resilience, Kindness and Workplace Performance

Workshop 2

Time to think about… Mentoring for Performance

Workshop 3

Time to think about… Building a Flourishing Team

Workshop Outputs

·        Each participant takes away a “map” identifying learning points together with practical applications in the workplace

·        A Certificate of Attendance is issued for each workshop

·        A University CPD Certificate is issued for completion of all 4 workshops

Who is it for?
