Strategic Planning: Become a Future-ready Leader

Date: 11 February 2021

Time: 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm


When it comes to leadership roles, it is crucial to understand that having a leadership position and having excellent leadership skills are two different things. Luckily for us, evidence shows we can acquire these skills through the right training.

To accurately assess who we are as a leader, where we are and where we are going requires an extraordinary degree of awareness about self, others and the environment. If you want to make sure your strategic planning process is deeply meaningful and highly effective for you and your stakeholders, you must learn to view it through the lens of Emotional Intelligence.

Intercultural Competencies and Leadership

Date:  13th April 2021

Time: 6:30 – 8:15pm


CamAWiSE is pleased to welcome Danielle Feger (Research Development Consultant and founder of Equilibrium4Wellbeing).

At a time that has seen a seismic shift in working practises across the world, personal and organisational leadership has never been as important as it is right now. The way in which we approach business dramatically changed over the past few decades. Prior to the pandemic (2020), the uptake of interconnected technologies and interdependence of cultures between organisations was keenly felt, with an exponential trend last year.

In this Workshop we will:

  • Examine our own identity (influences of personal and cultural ‘baggage’).
  • Learn about common cross-cultural theories (cultural iceberg, cultural relativity).
  • Look at dimensions of intercultural interactions (high- vs low-context, power distance).

Blog – Effective Leadership in a Changing World

“With everything you do, whether you know it or not, you are leading. And the only constant in this world is change.”

As we mark a year since the UK first went into lockdown, this statement seems all the more poignant. We’ve just gone through a year of households and workplaces adapting to changes that were previously unimaginable. While some changes are imposed and others are chosen, all changes require strong leadership. And as we all know from personal experience, change is inevitable.

Julie Hogbin, the founder of Conscious Leadership, is an expert on change management.

“In reality, all of us are managing change all the time. And the more change you have experienced, the better you will be at leading through it.”
