Refreshers for Digital Leads
Refreshers for Digital Leads are half day workshops when Digital Leads can come together in a peaceful setting to discuss and exchange their experiences of leading Digital in their organisations.
In these sessions we use the principles of action learning sets. So while everyone will have an opportunity to present their issue in 5 minutes, only top one or two issues (chosen by the group) will be dissected and discussed in depth.
These in-depth discussions are usually incredibly useful both to the person who is looking for support (who will get new ideas on how to deal with the situation) and for people providing it (who will get to practice listening and coaching techniques).
The issues that work best with this format are:
* Something work-related but affecting you personally
* Something for which you have some level of responsibility
* Something that you are able to influence
So these could be issues which are related to moving on projects that are somewhat stuck, getting a buy-in from colleagues/senior managers for a project/strategy/change you are trying to introduce, unlocking difficult relationships with colleagues, etc.
