CREATING A SUCCESSFUL ORGANISATION THROUGH THE STORY OF FIRE. ORGANISATIONS AND BUSINESSES, BLAZING BEACONS ON THE HILL.
This presentation takes the audience on a journey through the elements of fire (the triangle of fire) connecting the elements to how organizations and businesses can use this process of how a fire starts and becomes a blazing beacon and a shining light for others to follow, and how to fan the flames to inspire and motivate their leaders, their teams and their staff.
WHEN TO LIGHT AND WHEN TO FIGHT FIRES IN AN ORGANISATION OR BUSINESS
Using the analogy of building fires and bushfires, including those that got out of control, GT shows you how all Leadership & Business is either lighting or fighting fires. The key is in knowing when to light and when to fight. He shows you how to fight unintended or deliberate organizational fires, how and why they start and how and when to stop them, through his more than 40 years as a front line leader, an executive, Vice President of a national board and a national chair of the built environment (AFAC).
If you are going to light an organizational idea, you had better be ready to back-burn around the edges and keep it heading in the right direction.
INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFIT BY FANNING THE FLAMES OF ORGANISATIONAL WISDOM TO CREATE SUCCESS
Most organizations don’t pretend to be wise, that’s because they don’t give it any thought, mostly thinking of profit and success. GT shows how
a wise organization delves deeply into the soul of its purpose and its people to ensure that wisdom is not being lost or ignored, so that success is guaranteed. By creating, capturing and communicating organizational wisdom an organization not only creates success, but does so on an ongoing basis.
HOW BUSINESSES BURN, NEAR MISSES AND LESSONS LEARNT
Organizational Visions and assumptions often inherent in goal setting, can be fatal, not only for firefighters but for organizations. GT shows you how to learn from your own near misses, capture your own lessons learnt, so you can prevent organizational failure and in some cases fatality.
Assumptions on the way to the fire can kill any firefighter – and any organization. Every organization has near misses, in firefighting if you repeat them you often die. GT shows how to challenge your assumptions and capture and communicate your lessons learnt.
