Redefining coaching psychology as an active and reflective solution in a global hypercomplex world of work.
Presenters: Gail Wrogemann, Ingra Du-Buisson & Steven Breger
At the current level of digital and automated interface, business teams need to be capable of mastering change, be responsive to new and at times unexpected developments and still work productively in uncertain and emergent spaces. This requires a particular type of team functioning; a type of leadership and particular skill sets that allow teams to work effectively.
Many perspectives on managing teams still follow linear, reductionist, proportional thinking. In an age of exponentially complex environments, leadership and management of teams need to change. Principles of complexity and coaching can effectively guide approaches for managers. This cluster of a theory is ideally suited for enhanced understanding of the interface of the interconnected, virtual and data-smart world of humans and technology. Managers, Leaders, Teams and Organisations can benefit from understanding the differences between complex and complicated, and how the application of this understanding leads teams to high production and innovation.
The content of this Master Class session include:
Part 1: Coaching high-performance teams in the complexity of the 4th Industrial Revolution
Part 2: Debunking controversial claims about coaching psychology
Part 3: The value of using a coaching approach with your clients
Ethics and Integrity in the 4th Industrial Revolution – including a panel on the post-election South African landscape
Title: The critical role of ethics in the ‘New World of Work’ as embodied in the 4th Industrial Revolution – and how it impacts on the role the IOP-Practitioners have to play
The role of ethics and integrity in ensuring the effective ‘running’ of the New World of Work by ensuring that people with integrity are being appointed and developed and that the full benefits are derived from the optimal application and adherence to the integrity construct in its fullest sense (that is based on the CIAS-Model of Integrity) by Louis Fick who is the CEO of Integrity International.
The workshop will be directed by Dr L. Fick, CEO Integrity international, and he will be joined by Mr R. Gouws, ex-Director of Standard bank, Professor Graupner, deputy Director at NWU also currently authoring a book on IOP in the 4th industrial revolution.
Esteemed panellist includes Prof F. Abrahams (UWC) and Prof. E. Kieswetter (Director-general SARS/ Da Vinci Institute).
Workplace ethics is defined loosely in general terms as: ‘Doing what is good and right’ relative to oneself, the organisation and its stakeholders and abiding by the organisation’s values, standards, norms and applicable rules and regulations while always be sensitive and responsive to the wider cultural, social and governmental environment in which the organisation and the human side of enterprise are functioning in.
Workplace ethics is not a new concept. It is based/founded on the well-established psychological construct of integrity; in the sense that workplace ethics represent the practical application of the psychological disposition of the person’s integrity-status in the world of work. The two concepts are indivisible and should be treated as such. They are naturally and closely related concepts. It is inconceivable that a person with well-developed and an internalized established status of integrity as well as a sound, consistent and balanced moral compass (which is embodied in the integrity construct) does not demonstrate a healthy, stable and predictable ethical behaviour pattern in practice. There is enough research evidence available over the years to confirm the fact that people with a high degree of integrity is contributing much (in terms of the incremental validity) to a performance and development criteria (the second highest contributor to General Mental Ability – GMA). In the first instance, it is thus obvious that the employer should strive to select people with high integrity and ethics and/or people with the potential of developing such. It should then also not come as a surprise that a large number of integrity tests saw the light of day over the last few years – most of them narrowly-based on honesty as a ‘criteria of success’, considering the fact that integrity is, in essence, a positively orientated construct.
As is known, INTEG is supplying an entire arsenal of seven dedicated integrity instruments on the market covering the entire field of the composite integrity construct with dedicated instruments in all the recognised spheres and angles of the said concept. Delegates to the workshop will be certified in the use of the integrity assessment tools.
Workshop attendees will furthermore benefit through:
AI, VR, Big Data and Digitization: How to successfully navigate the Innovation Revolution
Presenters: Lome Koekemoer, Ryno Zeelie & Storm Immelman
Through the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the digital transformation of life, the transition from people and paper to systems and analytics will enable automation, simplification and informed decision making in a way that supports the strategic growth of the organisation. Organisational psychologists, as experts in the field of people management, are now required to be highly innovative and technology savvy. As such they will need to drive the digitization efforts of key people management practices.
The workshop intends to encourage the audience to reimagine the field of Industrial Psychology as they know it and inspire leading professionals to be future-focused and understand how they need to evolve during the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The following focus areas will be covered during the workshop:
This workshop seeks to present the latest, ‘technovations’ (technology and innovations) that have been showcased internationally.
The workshop intends to share the latest technologies found internationally and shed light on the role that Organisational Psychologists and HR specialists could play in driving a safe and digitized work environment by encouraging a proactive approach to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Delegates will be requested to practically apply the tools and processes discussed in smaller groups and discuss the use thereof within their own organisations.
