Complimentary one-hour coaching session with Toni Snelgrove, subsequent to the workshop – this is limited to the first eight delegates who register for the workshop! 

 
Leading Your Way for Optimum Impact 
 
This is a co-creative workshop: with workshop colleagues you can truly be yourself to discover/re-discover and experiment with who you are when you are at your best and how to build on that for increasing your leading impact.  
You’ll come out with a simple and powerful Leading Plan that has been tested through colleague peer review. 
 
Learning Objectives 
 
  • Identify why you lead – what are your personal drivers and vision 
  • Create an individual leadership plan with actions and strategies for growth and development as a leader 
  • Identify opportunities for personal and leadership growth 
  • Equip yourself with the ability to turn challenges into opportunities 
  • Identify and mentor other women into leadership roles in your organisation 
Benefits of attending the workshop 
 
  • Delegates will be able to take advantage of a rare opportunity: to spend consolidated quality time reflecting upon ‘their Leading progress and next steps’. 
  • It is a private and confidential environment in the privileged company of insightful and talented fellow delegates. 
  • The workshop also looks at mentoring. When you co-create ideas on giving something back to aspiring female mentees, you actually raise your own standards of what you need as a mentee. 
  • All of this rich ‘experience-ing as a delegate’ is possible because of the way in which the workshop is crafted – a balance of rich conversation, role played by reflection, sharing case studies and of course insight-based planning for delegates’ next steps back on-site.
Workshop Facilitator
 
 Toni Snelgrove, Principal of Snelgrove and Associates 
 
In her business (Snelgrove & Associates Ltd, www.snelgrove.co.nz), Toni has a passion for crafting and delivering bespoke workshops. This is especially with participants who are hungry to fully experience (head, heart and gut) the creating of their next steps ‘leading’ plan. The word ‘Leading’ emphasies ‘the every day/moments’ of Leading others. Leading plans are grounded in the reality of the context and in what organisation participants lead. Every plan is different. Workshops emphasise the quality of conversation amongst delegates within a private and confidential space. 
 
Because of the rich experience they have had, participants have high ownership of what they create and a deep commitment to making it happen, subsequent to the workshop. 
 
Toni also does bespoke workshops as a team coach. By setting the right vibe, participants get into group flow and achieve amazing things. 
 
Way back as an employee, Toni felt that the opportunities for leaders to unleash their potential were frequently being lost through disconnects between executives and their employer. 
 
So she formed Snelgrove and Associates with the goal of assisting executives to realise their authentic potential through powerful conversations. This adds compelling value for both the executive and their employer. 
 
In her background, Toni has experienced a wide range of employment situations (PricewaterhouseCoopers, Fletcher Challenge) and of consulting situations. She has worked as a consultant, senior salesperson, general manager and leader of people; as a business partner – one of 4 directors; and as a solo-preneur.  
 
This wide range of experience means she can easily connect with her clients. Toni’s style is practical, agile and compassionate, with an ability to get quickly to the heart of the matter.
