Ascentia showcasing leadership and change capabilities at 2013 HR Business Summit

 Ascentia Corporate Coaching has signed up to share latest thinking on leadership and organisational change at HR Directors Business Summit at The ICC, Birmingham in January 2013.

Renowned for its cutting edge approach, at the HR Directors Event Ascentia will showcase three of its most transformational programmes:

Achieving Real Change (ARC) TM

This Ascentia programme is inspired by the work Robert of Kegan, a Harvard Professor of Education and Lisa Lahey, a Harvard Graduate School psychologist. ARC uses transformational questioning, coaching and structured discussion techniques to go deep below the surface of employee motivation and behaviour. It identifies the unconscious ‘brakes’ that make individuals and teams resistant to change – and works to release them.

Systemic Team Coaching

Systemic Team Coaching is a cutting-edge approach which illuminates the nested systems and complex structures and relationships that exist within organisations; influencing how employees behave and perform. The programme works over time, harnessing teams to drive sustainable change.

Strengths-Based Leadership

Research demonstrates that a strengths-based approach can achieve greater motivation, engagement and performance in employees. Ascentia helps organisations to adopt a holistic, strength-based approach to leadership through individual coaching and both team and organisational development

The 11th Annual HR Directors Business Summit is the largest and most senior meeting place for the HR community to congregate in 2013. The summit provides the ideal platform for the most senior thinkers and practitioners in the HR community to come together to share experiences, make new contacts and benchmark with their peers.

Ascentia founder, Sandra Henson says of the decision to attend: “The Summit has a reputation for investigating and advancing future trends and that lies at the heart of the Ascentia approach too. We offer clients solutions that are new, distinctive and powerful – but also grounded and sustainable. I see this event as a chance to meet with like-minded professionals to discuss how we can work together to explore the beliefs, behaviours and attitudes of their key employees – and motivate them towards delivering measurable performance benefits against strategic business objectives.”

The company tailors the latest evidence-based thinking in organisational change, people development and leadership into grounded, highly-effective programmes which are aligned to clients’ business objectives and help them to achieve a tangible commercial edge.
