1:45pm - Evidence-based Management (Professor Byron Keating)

Bias and error often contaminate managers’ perceptions and judgements which guide and inform action and decision-making. Evidence-based management (EBM) involves the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of research evidence to make better decisions. Learning EBM principles and skills helps managers engage in critical analytical thinking, improve their decision awareness, and make decisions on the basis of the best available evidence.

The focus of this leadership development masterclass is to further equip leaders with practical leadership skills to succeed.

This showcase will briefly discuss skill-based exercises around such issues as having courageous conversations, and managing expectations, conflict resolution, as well as providing and receiving feedback. Participants will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience in the Q&A session. Leaders will learn about core skills necessary for their managerial role in a highly experiential context.

3:45 pm - The Power of Transformative Thinking facilitated Using Lego Serious Play (Dr Shari Read and Dr Stephen Dann)

This short showcase session invites participants to embrace the power of the Lego Serious Play process and experience three ways of seeing, thinking and acting on a challenge using creativity, innovation, and sense making. The exercise helps individuals uncover their preference for ideas that solve problems within parameters, innovating through iterative processes or pushing for the pivot mode of completely reimagining the outcome. By using only six bricks, participants confront resource limits imposed by the world around them, and the power of sense making to help overcome these barriers to do much more with less.
