TEAMSLIC® has helped individuals and organisations gain the edge over others. Consistent with systems thinking it has been designed to examine the linkages and interactions between the elements that comprise a whole planning approach. In complex and chaotic situations, systems’ thinking helps you to systematically understand the environment and take effective decisions.  This type of thinking helps us see the big picture from which we can identify multiple leverage points to address and support constructive change. It also helps us see the connectivity between different elements of the situation.  This supports joined-up actions.

 

TEAMSLIC® helps you think quick! This holistic approach to planning is a logical, systematic handrail with wide utility. TEAMSLIC® is a pneumonic that includes the necessary capability steps for successful planning in pressured situations and in all environments.  Let us help you and your team by introducing you to TEAMSLIC® - enrol on one of our programmes. Alternatively, contact us for a tailored training package or 1-1 coaching session.

Women in Business Event (WIBE)

Dragonfly Directors are delivering the second ‘Women In Business Event’ (WIBE) for businesswomen who are interested in learning, gaining support and supporting other women in business.

Meetings are constructive, thought provoking and supportive. The aim is to bring people together to create a strong, friendly group that helps propel each other forward through support, inspiration and the development of creative solutions.  Use the Eventbrite link on the WIBE image for further detail and to book your place.

International Women's Day Presentation

AECOM, an organisation which designs, builds and finances business infrastructure projects, kindly invited me to deliver the keynote speech to kick-off their focus on International Women's Day.  This, in support of the 'Be Bold for Change' campaign.

 

Nick Jones, the Managing Director (Industrial) of AECOM, noted ' ... Amanda's insight into the gender diversity issues in the workplace, drawing on her own experience in the Army, was inspirational and motivating to many in my team. I have had several positive comments from both women and men, complimenting her on the well-judged balance of the presentation and practical nature of the advice she offered'.

 

A wholly stimulating day and an exciting opportunity to present to a diverse spectrum of the business community.
