'Functionally Fluent Leaders' workshop at Staff Developers Conference

Maximising Collaboration, Minimising Conflict – Creating Functionally Fluent Leaders and Managers for Shared Leadership

Workshop led by experienced TIFF Provider, Valerie Fawcett, Oxford Brookes University

Leaders for the future need to be able to garner the ideas, expertise and talents of all staff in order to make the best decisions in a challenging world.  This requires the ability to develop strong relationships themselves and encourage the same in their teams to maximise collaboration and healthy challenge and avoid energy-draining types of conflict.  At Oxford Brookes, we have placed the Functional Fluency model at the heart of our new Brookes Leadership Programme to enable the development of self-awareness which will encourage the development of this ability and understanding of relationship dynamics. After this session you will be able to:

  • Describe and demonstrate the Functional Fluency model, developed by Susannah Temple and based on Transactional Analysis
  • Identify your own effective and non-effective behaviours" as participants in this workshop will be able to gain that practical benefit from it as well as exploring how they could use it with others
  • Explore the use of the model to develop managers and leaders and shared leadership
  • Explain how this model and its accompanying profiling tool (TIFF) is being used as a basis for the new Brookes Leadership Programme for managers at Oxford Brookes University
