energising people, teams, organisations and communities
If your people feel completely engaged and committed to a compelling journey that makes the most of their awesome talents, then you may wish to give this presentation a miss.
If, on the other hand, you’re reeling from cutbacks and a challenging marketplace, or simply want to achieve greater, sustainable success, you will certainly be keen to understand a formula for employee engagement that faces up to reality and provides a credible and rewarding way forward.
The word “Dzukani” stems from Chichewa, the language of the Chewa tribe in Malawi. It simply means “wake up” which is exactly the tonic for most people in most workplaces today. It’s also the method that has been successfully used by some of the most effective leaders of recent times including Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Winston Churchill.
Essentially the Dzukani method of engagement is one that requires the following steps, often in the order presented (but not always):
Deep understanding of who contributes to performance and how they add value
Honest appraisal of the current situation including the associated opportunites and tensions
Opportunity to process the deep feelings people have about their work
Co-creation of a compelling vision for high performance future
Commitment to action that will add significant value
Follow up support, measure and celebrate the effectiveness of the action
Helen Lee, Founder & Principal Coach of Lee Heiss Coaching, Singapore is collaborating with Clive Wilson, Deputy Chairman of Primeast, United Kingdom to bring the Dzukani Leadership and Coaching Methodlogy to the world. It was very well received by top-level coaches and facilitators attending Mr Wilson’s presentation in London at the recent European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) Conference. And now, these two veteran coaches and facilitators are introducing this leadership and coaching program to Singapore.
