The One-Day Master Class for Senior Executives held at the Institute of Directors

How to eliminate “Silo Mentality” and develop Joined-up Organisations, Services & Projects


In this master class, your whole view of what is possible will almost certainly change dramatically. You will see that eliminating silo mentality and improving performance is much easier than you thought.

Master classes are held at the Institute of Directors in Central London, Birmingham and Manchester. This is an interactive format, where delegates have plenty of opportunity to discuss their own issues with both the master class leader and other delegates.

During this master class, you will learn how to:

  • Eliminate “Silo” thinking where many members of your team are only focused on their own specialisms or departments
  • Transform the usual resistance to change, which requires great effort to “push-in” changes, to a highly motivated situation that will “pull-in” changes for improvements, without even the need for “selling” ideas to create the “buy-in”
  • Cascade the process throughout the organisation and progressively build a complete Culture of High Performance, where everyone in the organisation is consistently working together to improve performance
  • Utilise strategic “Systems Thinking” to enable your team to work together more effectively
  • Reframe your top managers’ perception so they move from Crisis Management to High Performance Leadership
  • Enable your team to create ” joined up solutions” and eliminate “black holes”
  • Measure performance in a way that will focus the whole organisation on maximising Value
  • Change people’s behaviour by changing their perception of their job

During the day you will hear many examples of dramatic transformations that have resulted from applying the principles of Challenge Mapping. You will be able to develop your own transformation plans. However, in order to assess the benefits to your own organisation, ask yourself one question. How much more effective would your organisation be if everyone improved the way they coordinated their activities with each other to achieve peak organisational performance? Simply list all the benefits that you predict would follow from this one simple change, both in measurable performance and in the working environment. The only question you now have to ask yourself is whether all these benefits are worth a day of your time?

Why is Challenge Mapping superior to other alternatives?

Challenge Mapping utilises the Systems Thinking approach. This approach is increasingly being used throughout the world, because it gives people the perspective to easily resolve many types of problems that had previously seemed insoluble. As such, Challenge Mapping “Reframe Perceptions” in a way that will simultaneously improve the effectiveness of their own team, and quickly achieve a step improvement in the performance of their whole organisation.
