Effecting Culture Change

Effecting Culture Change
Add to CPD Planner

 
Culture is everything. It goes far beyond the company values and mission we espouse on our websites, letterheads and to our clients. It is what we say and do when we think others are not watching or listening. Essentially it is about how we treat each other, how we communicate with each other and our clients.

The growing incidence within the legal profession of stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and burn out are most often attributed to negative cultures within the profession, the workplace and amongst colleagues. Too often senior legal professionals have not embraced and honoured their responsibility of leading by example through the inclusion of humanity and authenticity to legal practice and leadership.

This full day workshop is aimed at all those wishing to lead their teams, company and themselves in a way that aligns with their personal and professional values, challenges outdated attitudes and starts with individual conversations we have, which sets the tone for authentic, impactful communication and sustainable organisational cultural change where it is needed the most.

This workshop is broken down into two broad modules:

Module 1 - Story Telling for Leadership, Engagement and Influence

This focusses on identifying, crafting and using stories in the leadership context to engage staff and clients, bring to life and communicate with effectiveness company values and build trust, respect and sustainable relationships with stakeholders.

This module of the workshop will help you to:

  • Identify and articulate your impactful story for change;
  • Craft stories to serve others and manage change;
  • Use stories to influence, build engagement and inspire others to take action; and

Module 2 - Courage to Change Culture

This module focuses on the courageous leadership work required to address cultural change - for an individual, team and organisational perspective. Its about doing things differently, being prepared to think outside the box and be a disruptor in your profession, and overcoming that which is not serving your organisation or your clients well.

This module will help you to:

  • Identify and articulate your personal and organisation's values;
  • Confront the disconnect between values and actions;
  • Challenge personal and professional incongruence; and
  • Harness your positions of influence to be the agent for change.

Both modules involve content and action based learning modules.

A variety of teaching and learning methods will be used which includes a high degree of active participation by participants.

About Rabia Siddique

History making humanitarian, author and international keynote speaker Rabia Siddique is a power house for change.
Entertaining, powerful and engaging, this best-selling author represents a living example of how each one of us can be a force for positive change in our own lives and those around us.

Having survived a hostage crisis in Iraq, Rabia garnered global attention for making the British military accountable for silencing her about her ordeal and role in releasing captured special forces soldiers.

Standing up for justice in the face of public ridicule, Rabia’s brave action in suing the British Government for sexism and racism became a catalyst for policy change to ensure a fairer workplace for women and cultural minorities in the British military.
Drawing on extensive experience as a former criminal, war crimes, terrorism and human rights lawyer, military career, psychology training and business, Rabia is also a sought after transformational coach and mentor.

She has provided equality and diversity training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst where her charges included Prince William.

A noted media commentator, Rabia’s first book, Equal Justice, is the focus for a feature film.

She also has the delightful challenge of being Mum to triplet boys.
