Topic: What is Collaboration & Economic Success in a Changing World?

 

Rather than focus on solutions, Warm Data Labs encourage a group of people to make better sense of the complexity that emerges from numerous different perspectives and contexts. It offers a trans-contextual approach and aides in strengthening the capacity to perceive, understand and work with complex issues. A Warm Data Lab is a platform for raising questions and developing understanding of a complex issue.

The Leader as Coach Masterclass

Developing a professional approach to work, amongst your employees requires time and a dedicated approach.

This session will explore and analyze the central elements of leadership coaching, including a practical look at this approach.
