Leadership in the complex and fast changing modern workplace has become about unlocking the power and potential of people to achieve organisational goals. The old command and control, Taylorist management paradigm is no longer fit-for-purpose.
Anyone can become a leader by adapting their current specialist skill set and developing new skills and behaviours. This virtual workshop on Microsoft Teams explores leadership skills, on the assumption that leadership starts with self and identifying what it is that drives you and could inspire others to follow you.
Nonviolent Resistance (NVR) is an approach created to provide effective responses to aggressive, violent, self-destructive and controlling behaviour in children, adolescents and young adults. It is also used with anxious young people, whose behaviour controls the family through social withdrawal, internet, addiction, school non-attendance and similar difficulties.
The NVR key concepts of Resist, Persist, Unite, Repair provide an alternative empowering structure to deal with challenging behaviour when the usual approaches - rewards, incentives, sanctions, deterrents etc. are not working. It is a helpful addition within the context of foster carer training in providing a way of introducing boundaries in a way that will support non shaming approaches (connection before correction)
The NVR approach was introduced by Haim Omer in 2004. Drawing on the inspiration of figures like Gandhi and Martin Luther King who sought to challenge social injustice through peaceful means, Omer created a framework for use in homes, schools and communities providing practical strategies to help parents, carers and professionals:
? De-escalate in interactions with the child.
? Resist challenging and controlling behaviour.
? Build a united support network between home, school and community.
? Raise their presence and capacity to persist
? Reconnect and repair relationships with the child
Making Every Contact Count Healthy Conversation Skills
Making Every Contact Counts - Healthy Conversation Skills (MECC HCS) is an approach that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that organisations and individuals have with people to support them in making positive changes to their health and wellbeing, by using open discovery questions and active listening skills. MECC HCS is about enhancing the conversations we are already having with individuals. It's not about adding to already busy workloads.
The course is divided into two ½ day sessions set a week apart alongside four
e- learning modules to be completed before session two. Both sessions and elearning must be completed to gain the accredited Royal Society for Public Health certificate.
