BIPC 2020 Workshop - What has the pandemic taught us about Leadership & Inclusion?

02 Dec 2020
Online webinar, Online

The Business in the Parliament Conference 2020 will be a little different this year as we support a virtual event.  As part of the run up to the main conference which will focus on the theme of Resilience and Recovery: Working Together for a New and Sustainable Economic Future we will be hosting a series of workshops with our partners at Women’s Enterprise Scotland, Young Enterprise Scotland and SCDI.

IoD Scotland in partnership with Women’s Enterprise Scotland are hosting a workshop on What has the pandemic taught us about Leadership & Inclusion? with guest speakers Andy Lothian, CEO Insights Group and Caroline McKenna, CEO/Founder at Social Good Connect.  We hope you can join us for this inspiring and engaging session.


         


Coronavirus is causing an unprecedented level of disruption and asking questions of us like never before.
 
If we can pause, and have the presence of mind to ask a single question back – ‘If coronavirus is a teacher, what is it teaching us?’ – how do we create the environment to emerge from this crisis stronger than ever before? Every adversity, there is an opportunity to learn and grow.

If we can pause, and have the presence of mind to ask a single question back – ‘If coronavirus is a teacher, what is it teaching us?’ – how do we create the environment to emerge from this crisis stronger than ever before? Every adversity, there is an opportunity to learn and grow.

Self-aware people are your organisation’s competitive advantage, because self- awareness is the foundation upon which all else is built.

Leadership’s response to a crisis is paramount. Great leaders understand that different people have different responses and resilience levels and will respond in a constructive way and engage others through the lens of self-understanding. Do we understand why others respond the way they do, and accept this, as a truly inclusive leader?

We will explore how we can all take personal responsibility to respond in a positive, constructive and effective way to work towards future thinking to enhance our personal leadership skills, support our people and our communities.

We will also discuss solutions to being truly collaborative and inclusive connecting our public, private and third sectors for the benefit of our people, businesses, and local communities.

During this 90 minute workshop Insights Group CEO Andy Lothian will draw on his 30 years’ experience in people development, to explore how self-awareness is the foundation upon which all else is build.

Andy will examine the importance of purpose and values in keeping us anchored during periods of disruption.  He will share how our response to this crisis, guided by self-understanding, will define us as leaders and individuals, and help us build the businesses of tomorrow – today.

We will also be joined by CEO/Founder at Social Good Connect, Caroline McKenna, on how we can build on the goodwill already seen during the pandemic to create a world where people care and are inspired to make a positive social impact.

Caroline will explore how purposeful leaders embed a giving culture in order to benefit business, people and communities and how we can  make these changes sustainable long after the pandemic has passed.

This workshop is open to all business leaders across Scotland and our aim is to make it a truly inspiring and engaging session.

This is an online event. To attend, book below. We will provide a joining link before the event.
