Webinar Series: Getting Through Change

Webinar # 2 – Balancing Empathy and Accountability – 4 July, 2pm, How to bring team members along when they are experiencing a tough time. Presented by Belinda Bryant with guest Nicky Benson

Register now for 4 July 2.00-2.45pm

On Thursday 4 July, join Belinda Bryant, one of our directors and Nicky Benson for our free webinar Balancing Empathy and Accountability

As leaders we increasingly realise the importance of understanding what is going on for the people we lead and supporting them as whole people. Sometimes having empathy for the challenges they are experiencing can feel at odds with holding them accountable.

Well known team and executive coach, Nicky Benson has kindly agreed to share her considerable expertise in this area to discuss among other things:

  • How we can help people get to a place where they are able to hear what you are asking of them
  • How to avoid carrying accountability alone – the role of the team in accountability
  • Timing – how do you decide when to push and when to let someone be a while . .
  • What leaders need to be examining about themselves as they work through these situations

Questions will be welcomed so bring yours.

If the date and time does not work for you, you can still register and we’ll send you the recording when the webinar concludes.

This webinar is part of a series: Getting Through Change

Many members of our Wellington Community are working through the roller coaster of change.  Being sector wide and triggered by a change of Government – and therefore for some a material change of direction – means it can be a bigger deal than the change regularly experienced in large organisations.

Behind the restructure process comes the challenge of getting new/changed teams stood up and people ready to deliver to the new performance demands.  We are beginning to hear from leaders and OD professionals who are looking to get prepared for this phase – and so wanted to bring the expertise of some colleagues we admire to our wider community.

We are delighted that two experienced leaders with relevant expertise have agreed to join us to share their experience and knowledge, to support this work:

  • Webinar # 1 – Transitioning teams to new beginnings after change – Explore ideas and stories on how to help teams work through the transition towards new ways of working after a change process with guest Wendy Hetherington, L & D Manager Inland Revenue NZ, 25 July 2pm (note the date of this webinar has changed)
  • Webinar # 2 – Balancing Empathy and Accountability– How to bring team members along when they are experiencing a tough time, with guest Nicky Benson, 4 July 2pm

Register now for the 4 July 2.00-2.45pm
