The Dancefloor and Balcony session builds on one of the central ideas in Systems Leadership behaviours – a way of thinking and behaving that leads to change. The idea is to ‘get off the dancefloor and onto the balcony’: in other words, to stand back and reflect on where you’ve been and what you’ve experienced, and what you might want to do next.
We’ll look at what you’ve been doing in your system, especially if it’s different to what you were doing pre-Covid; what’s worked and what you’d want to do differently; and how you’ve been able to use new or different approaches.
We’ll then go on to take a ‘balcony’ perspective, looking at what you want to do next; how you’d like it to be different; and the shifts that might need to happen, both in yourself and in your system, to enable you to make a start. We’ll include reflections on how you might use your influence to achieve your aims; the help and support you might need; and how you can go about obtaining it.
This will be a practical and interactive session, enabling you to build your skills in reflective practice and peer coaching alongside getting an opportunity to stand back and think, and to get support and advice from a broader group. The aim is for you to come away with skills that you can practise and put to use with the people you work with, and to gain some insights into ‘what next?’.
This session will be delivered by Debbie Sorkin, National Director of Systems Leadership at The Leadership Centre.

The Dancefloor and Balcony session builds on the idea that the way we think and behave can lead to real change, focusing on a comparison between the way we've done things previously and what we want to do next.
