Located in one of Canada's most beautiful National Historic Sites, Royal Roads University has a long history of excellence. In 2015, they celebrated 75 years of leadership and learning - 55 years as a military college and 20 years as a public applied research university.
Led by Royal Roads University facilitators, participants experience workshops and team discussions, on key leadership competencies and are challenged to review their own leadership styles.
MODULE 1: WARRIORSHIP: LEADING BRAVE-HEARTED©
Brave-hearted leadership is needed and being called forth; we are at an urgent and disruptive time in human history that calls on our best selves to lead with courage, love and fierce determination. Together, we explore: What is Warriorship? What does it mean to lead brave-hearted? How can we best access this wisdom? And sustain it? And inspire it in others? How can we build a community of diverse warriors who can individually and collectively contribute to transformative change?
This engaging workshop will harness the energy and wisdom in the room to co-create a safe and courageous space to explore Warriorship. Participants leave with teachings, reflections, and the inspiration to lead brave-hearted.
MODULE 2: COGNITIVE DIVERSITY: HARNESSING OUR THINKING TOWARDS BETTER RESULTS
There is growing evidence that the idea that cognitive or deep diversity (diversity in how people feel, think, and act) can effect real change for organizations. With growing global inter connectedness, organizations are increasingly looking for leaders who can lead teams of diverse thinkers.
Through exercises and group work, participants will explore the notion of neuroleadership and particularly the significant benefits of diverse ways of thinking and being. Examine how brain physiology informs leadership styles and learn to lead with innovation and creativity through whole brain thinking.
MODULE 3: SYSTEMS BEING: MOVING FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE
Within this session, participants develop an understanding of individual approaches to bringing about change in complex systems. You will examine how you currently react to organizational change, and learn tools to change reactive patterns to become a more adaptive and transformational leader.
Learn tools so that you can create the conditions necessary so that people at all levels can work productively to their potential. You will explore human behavior, and use this knowledge to create models of good leadership, organizational strategy, and transformative systems design.
MODULE 4: NAVIGATING COMPLEXITY; MANAGING POLARITIES
Discover the power of navigating complexity with an emergent approach. Witness how two interdependent opposites reveal themselves, take shape, and impact the development of humans, communities, systems, and nations.
Through small group work and activities, this module investigates how polarities within organizations can be challenging to work place efficiencies unless managed. Learn how to convert resistance to change to a resource for sustainable, ongoing change-ability.
