Leading out of Lockdown – Phil Olley

A Happy New Year to everyone. As we enter into 2022 many people might be seeing this year as an opportunity for a fresh start.

Phil’s sessions can work as away-day sessions, half-day workshops, or for a keynote speech.

Leading out of Lockdown – Phil Olley

The Challenge of Leadership in the New Business Environment

The past two years’ uncertainty, volatility, and turbulence has had an unprecedented impact on teams, on individuals, and on organisations throughout the world. If you are looking to get 2022 off to a ‘flying start, this is especially important. The resulting change in workstyle has created a permanent shift. Many people have more autonomy, many have a change in work environment (working from home, for example), and gone are many of the working patterns of the past. A new sense of what’s important to individuals in the way they work and the sort of work they want to do is emerging.

What does this mean for leaders in the new environment?

This is particularly important as teams look to reconnect in 2022… setting up the year ahead, with a desire for renewed focus, energy, clarity.

  • Not all teams will be coming back to the workplace, some may stay working from home, some may choose a hybrid option.
  • Leaders will have to change their style to get the most from their people and their teams.
  • They will have to understand why not all team members will want to return to the office, and in fact, many much prefer to work alone, to be ‘left to just get on with things.
  • And why others will be desperate to reconnect and forge ahead collectively.
  • And how to lead and a team with disparate approaches, more fragmented than ever before (in workstyle and location).

This session with Phil Olley helps leaders and teams to:

  • discover how to use ‘The NEXUS Principles’ to navigate the unfamiliar territory of the new business climate.
  • discover how to generate engagement, fulfillment, and connection in turbulent times.
  • promote a new team ethos – a culture of achievement – a mindset fit for the business world of today and tomorrow.
  • And how to create clarity, certainty, and a fresh energy for the year ahead, and beyond.

Being the team of yesterday is not enough for the new environment. This session is for those teams, businesses, and individuals for whom “OK” is not enough. It’s for those who don’t want to ‘settle for average’. It’s for those who want to embrace the shift and thrive, rather than merely survive. Phil promises, and delivers, a breakthrough in thinking and performance.

You’ll never view leadership and teamwork the same way ever again.

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
