Reach out to the founders – Dr Jen Frahm and Lena Ross. They are experienced at designing and building leadership capability during change and navigating agile environments.
We were really impressed with how you got our leaders to where they needed to be for further change. Our leadership team felt they had a much better understanding of change and how to lead through continuing uncertainty. You have set us perfectly for the next step.
This course was very relevant and targeted for nbn. The format of half a day with light pre-work was excellent. The content also obviously linked to other training including enterprise leadership, the leader immersion sessions and agility accelerator. I would recommend this training as I found it very valuable.
Collaborative is one of our core values at SimCorp, and I started 2023 with an intent to deepen my collaboration skills – recognising how fundamental these are to my change enablement role and to my facilitation of our cross-SimCorp People Change Community.
Today I completed an extended e-learning course on Busting Silos – curated and taught by Dr Jen Frahm and Melissa Dark, who share deep expertise on theory and practices of collaboration, communication and change. There was so much rich content (both familiar and unfamiliar) – but my 3 most significant takeaways were:
1) For collaboration to be meaningful it needs to be a purposeful choice – not a default response. Adam Kahane’e decision-tree on the relevance/role of collaboration in different circumstances was a lightbulb moment for me.
2) Collaboration that actually ‘busts silos’ is effectively counter-cultural in traditionally hierarchical organisations – potentially a ‘rebellious’ activity – so it should always be visibly guided by intent for positive change. I hadn’t seen myself as a ‘rebel at work’ before!
3) Collaborating across silos requires consciously opening yourself up to the discomfort of productive conflict – as you navigate different agendas, priorities and ways of working. This requires skills far beyond those we use in everyday, comfortable collaboration – e.g. the ‘tactical empathy’ recommended by Chris Voss, a former FBI hostage negotiator.
I loved it! I’m, pioneering a new way of thinking about how we lead and deliver change.
The learning wasn’t just intellectual, it was emotional and personal as well. All of the topics were incredibly relevant to my work in the last year.
On starting March 2020 … it has been an amazing time to do the course. We’ve had a real event, been able to apply the learning and practice in real time!
On starting March 2020…It was the worst time to do a course, it was the BEST course to do at this time!
The modules in this program cover off themes and topics that are really pertinent – especially now! I couldn’t have done this at a better time!
Undertaking this course revealed a wealth of insights that refined my change and leadership capabilities and expanded my change toolkit.
