What makes a healthy, high-performing team? Turns out, the key to success is not who is on a team, but rather how the team members interact, structure their work, and view their contributions. In this workshop, you will explore five key dynamics that set successful teams apart from other teams. Reflect on your own team structure and dynamics and identify areas for experimentation. Walking out of this session, you will have a concrete sense for where to target your efforts for building a more productive, engaged team.

The way to implement sustainable change- the practical tools and the rigorous science

Leadership is a set of skills, five actually. Put them into the structure of organization and performance and then add the human factor. Would you like to get an illustrative 13 step model on how it all works together? It´s not rocket science but still a fairly interesting combination of time and activities that makes the difference between success and failure. A successful implementation is seen as an art but is more about applying science and practical tools in the right steps. Behavior analyst Simon Elvnäs is the entertaining and pragmatic researcher who has followed more than 500 leaders in their efforts since 2010, his unique database with more than 3000 video-observations provides a vast and remarkable knowledge of interesting details in leadership and performance.

 

The workshop contains essential theory and research in the field around the models and how to use it in real life settings. Simon is an established change agent, celebrated author and highly ranked inspirational speaker. He held the key note position at Lean Iceland in 2017 and now in 2020.

Take part in the fill transformational journey workshop from an 80 hour working week filled with fire fighting, chaos and exhausting never ending work stress to a 2 hour working week of calm, control and time to think, plan, improve and innovate… all while costs decreased and profits increased.

The workshop will reveal the ‘good, the bad and the ugly reality’ of being in business today and how leaders can take the same principles, method and templates to create similar results in their own personal and professional lives.

Jenny started her sporting career at aged 6, after been encouraged to join a local judo class to learn how to defend herself whilst also having somewhere positive to focus her high energy. She fought for Team GB and Team Scotland as a youth, junior and senior judo player all over the world from the sporting halls of Meadowbank Stadium and Crystal Palace Sporting Stadium to Las Vegas Casino’s and Japan’s famous dojo’s and trying schools.

Jenny took a year off from competing in her final year of her Health Psychology honours degree to concentrate on her studies. During that period, a conversation with her ‘Strength & Conditioning Coach and ‘handshake bet’ lead to her the speedy world of track cycling. After fast tracking through a sporting talent transfer programme, Jenny raced all over the UK and Europe winning Scottish, British and International medals – becoming the fastest Scottish female sprinter and eventually going on to represent Team Scotland at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games where she won a silver medal and 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

In between sporting peaks, Jenny started to use the lessons taken from sport and started applying them in business At Standard Life Plc. Using timeless principles such as 80/20 Principle, Marginal Gains and The Compound Effect she has successfully created and lead continuous improvement programmes from a team of 10 people up to business unit of 1500 across two FTSE 100 companies in 2 different industries. Those programmes focussed on improving customer and colleague experience whilst getting rid or simplifying frustrating and wasteful processes. As well as reducing and improving controls, reducing cost and improving profit margin.

“The quickest way to innovate is to take lessons from one world and apply them in another.”

Now Jenny uses the lessons she learned in both her sporting and business careers to help entrepreneurs and business leaders turn fire fighting, high stress and out of control costs in they business (and personal lives) into calm, control, profit and growth all whilst working less.
