1 day The Leader in You, is built on EQ - Focusing your energies to ensure you are a highly effective, emotionally intelligent leader

Talk to people in the workforce today, and many harbour visions of being a "Leader". You may already do too.

However, if you were promoted to that dream leadership position tomorrow, would you hold a clear "Vision" for the leadership runway ahead of you, and know what to do?

Assuming that you did, it's likely the focus of your attentions would be mostly external; on the roles, responsibilities and resources required. Typically this means you'd primarily think about the task, the team, or the timeframe, right?

A more modern approach, views leadership like a continuous conversation through which options surface. Once there is clarity, choices are communicated, and then actioned.

What then, would be the roles you could play in a leadership "conversation"? What would you need to do to play the roles well? And, how would you demonstrate to others that you were indeed making positive contributions?

This Workshop therefore takes an emotionally intelligent and personalised approach to leadership. Our focus emphasises core things you'll need to know about yourself, as well as important areas relating to your interaction with others.

This is reinforced with a strong belief that an effective leader requires choices. It suggests that by doing the right things well, in the right situations, the leader ensures that a range of productive options will arise, and choices made.
Workshop Objectives
Our intentions are to focus your energies, to ensure that you can become a highly effective, emotionally intelligent leader

You'll embrace what we call personal or inner leadership. It's about having leadership "conversations" with yourself; you are the critical resource that you need to lead first.

Emotional intelligence or EQ sits well at the heart of this soft skills Workshop, as once you are able to lead yourself, then will you be more capable of leading others.
Workshop Outlines
  • Differentiating between leaders, leadership & leading
  • Examining qualities that contribute to effective leadership
  • Explaining EQ, and its significance in personal leadership
  • Balancing between present performance, and future vision
  • Communicating clearly to influence the future actions of others
  • Providing positive feedback to reinforce behaviours that you desire
  • Using redirection to recover situations and get things back on-track
  • Considering leader actions as a powerful role model for others
  • Exploring reflection as a core component in personal growth
Facilitation Approach for Learning
This is an experiential Workshop, which emphasises engagement, interaction, and practice. Participants should expect short presentations that introduce content, experiential activities for skills practise, and group discussions for reflection that deepens their learning.
Who Should Attend This Workshop?
This one-day Workshop is designed for people who are individual contributors stepping up to a leader position, or, junior leaders, recent managers or supervisors, who want to be a more effective leader.
It allows me to identify my own leadership skills

I can apply training I received in real life workplace

It helps me to be a better leader, and also better person

A good reminder of the qualities that a leader must possess

It helps me be a better leader, and manage staff issues better

Activities are able to get us to identify real life issues we face, but may not be aware of when we come across

I feel I was introduced to lots of things that I’ve not thought of, e.g., providing positive feedback when mistakes are made

It makes us reflect on past experiences and improve on leadership skills, especially in giving feedbackv Patrick was able to make us realise that there are issues within us that we need to realise ourselves, to be able to manage better when we go back to the office

He makes us think in different ways than what we are used, and the focus on the thoughts & emotions provided good insight
Your Workshop Facilitator: Mr. Patrick O'Brien, CMgr
With a constant appetite for change, Patrick came to realise one very important thing: it's the People that matter in business, personal development and growth counts. His learning delivery approach therefore focuses on building those important soft skills. Training thus scaffolds atop three firm foundations.

First, for learning to stick, it needs to be fun; enjoyment & engagement are precursors to absorption & adoption. Next, for learning to be relevant, it has to be real; it needs collaboration, openness, and a little intensity. Finally, for learning to be desirable, it must match expectations; it has to substantially deliver what it says "on the tin".

Patrick therefore designs Workshop experiences that masterfully combine Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) with a deep Coaching mentality. Both are invitingly interlaced using Improvisational techniques. His diverse background and experience also allow him to facilitate inclusive and valuable learning moments. These are highly engaging, empowering, and, enjoyable.

His life's journey has straddled different countries and cultures in Ireland, England, New Zealand and Singapore. He has worked his way through a variety roles, from individual contributor to Managing Director, in the corporate world. And, he has built considerable business experience along the way in working across sectors such as government, technology, manufacturing, finance, consulting, aviation, telecommunications and the Internet.

His formal education is well rounded: Honours in IT, Masters in Marketing and MBA in Finance. He is also a "Master Practitioner" of NLP, and an enthusiastic author with Articles regularly appearing in the local media. In whatever form you experience his work, you'll always feel his curiously cheerful sense of enjoyment; it shines through.

Patrick is an active member of many international Professional bodies, such as the Chartered Management Institute, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Institute of Directors. He is proud to be one of only a small handful of "Chartered Managers" in Asia.

With a warm Irish wit, a love of the "craic" and a big beaming smile, audiences in over twenty-five countries have found his disarmingly unpretentious and conversational approach to learning, to be refreshing and rewarding experiences.
