About the workshop:

Covid 19 has triggered a range of sociological, economic and organisational disruptions. Combined with technological disruptions occurring pre-covid, many tasks traditionally performed by Managers are increasingly being performed by sophisticated and intelligent computer applications. With working from home likely to remain, this trend is predicted to accelerate. If this is the case, will we still need Managers and if so, what roles will they perform?

The session will explore the following topics:

  • Changes that are occurring that will disrupt the Manager role (e.g. real-time capture and data delivery systems for performance feedback in relation to task and social interactions, automated work flow design, division, allocation and assignment, greater surveillance and monitoring of employees, more automated and intelligent recruitment, talent identification and development tools, empowered and intelligent internal task bidding – e.g. Internal Air Tasker for organisations, #Me Too and #Black Lives Matter, Responsiveness to Covid-19 pandemic and in particular remote working)
  • What will we need from Managers now and into the future? (Roles will need to transform to step into leadership, and support Managers to support workers become more change-ready in the work they do, how they perform their work, and resilient to disruption and ongoing and rapid changes in all of the above)
  • Supporting Managers to future-proof their careers and sustain their value (transition from task assignment and management to people leadership, Manager-as-coach, Culture Leader etc)
  • The traits that Managers will need to support workers through pandemics and other major disruptions
  • Strategies for supporting managers to develop the traits and skills required to transition (assess and identify gaps, internal and external coaching, reflective practice, real-world case conferencing and debriefing, clarify expected behaviours, support strategic self-awareness through tools such as Hogan to support the Manager understand their own reactions to change and pressure and with expert coaching and Leader as Coach support Managers to enhance their emotional stability and role model key behaviours in relation to change readiness and resilience).

Takeaways:

  • Understanding how traditional tasks of Management are and will likely be disrupted as a result of Covid-19, technological and sociological factors
  • Future proofing Manager careers
  • Tasks that Managers will need to transition to now and in the future
  • Traits of leadership essential for Managers to support workers through pandemics and other major disruptions
  • Strategies for developing traits and skills required in self and/or as Leaders leading Managers.
