MPI at HRSE in Dubai 2019
We have had a very busy few days exhibiting at the HR Summit & Expo in Dubai. This is a regular appearance for us and one that we are proud to be associated with due to our successful global coverage, which includes the UAE.
3 Days of quality conversations
What better way to spend your time than networking with hundreds of other HR & L&D professionals, sharing examples of how we can support them by using bespoke blended and self-managed solutions to help manage today’s most pressing challenges.
Meet the Team
There was a warm welcome at our stand and was hosted by a tremendous trio of professionals. Jenni Waller, Senior Director, flew in from the UK along with Dr Angela Armstrong, Author and Leadership Development expert with MPI. Of course, they were joined by Nikki Kaur who is MPI’s Regional Manager in the Gulf.
MPI are now proud providers of Blanchard’s Situational Leadership 2, widely known as SLII
SLII helps leaders to adapt their style to fit any given situation and helps them to provide the very best coaching and development to their team members.
SLII is the most widely taught leadership model in the world. It creates a shared process, language, and model for building leadership across all levels of an organization.
Dr Angela Armstrong in action
We were extremely proud to be able to invite along one of the world class Associates that we partner with, Dr Angela Armstrong PhD, who delivered several thought-provoking sessions to a full-house audience. Angela talks effortlessly and passionately about Resilience …. And how to build up the necessary habits to sustain a high performance.
Recent statistics indicate that workplace stress has reached epidemic proportions. The Labour Force Survey in 2018 revealed that a staggering 595,000 workers suffered from work-related stress, depression or anxiety - that’s 1,800 per 100,000 employees who are members of the stress club. Today’s leaders are faced with a constantly changing business climate - rapidly evolving technology, organisational uncertainty, financial pressure and changing client demands.
Simultaneously, employees want their leaders to be inspiring, inclusive and to cultivate psychological safety so people can discuss mental health openly. To balance the many demands on leaders at work and move forward from these statistics, workplace resilience needs to be prioritised. Angela Armstrong defines resilience as the ability to take the challenges and changes of life in your stride and to say yes to the opportunities that excite you.
