Today we ran our first professional development day for ourselves and the various associates and sub-contractors who work for and with us. This was a great opportunity to share the expertise from a wide variety of discipline areas, including: organisational development projects and bio-feedback tools. Hosted by the BMW centre in Westlake, it proved to be a professional yet personable experience for all.
Chris Ridler spoke about the design and development of an executive leadership coaching program which built on Lencioni’s 5 dysfunctions of teams, Lesyk’s mental toughness skills and contemporary neuro-science principles. In particular, he discussed the difficulties of designing a program on best-practice theory that aligns with the often highly dominating personalities of executives who have typically had considerable exposure to a variety of individual and team interventions.
Elise Bateman spoke about the bio-feedback machine she was using with high-performance athletes, discussing how it could be set up with athletes to monitor before, during and post-performance to measure stress levels and heart-rate and compare them both before mental skills training and after mental skills training.
