Stew Darling is a decorated, retired British Army Lieutenant Colonel. He shaped a career leading military operations all over the globe. Whether from the luxury of an office or in the harsh, unforgiving environments of Bosnia, Iraq or Afghanistan his leadership was not learned in the lecture theatre but the theatre of war, and latterly of business. Great leadership is not a science, it is an art. An art that is learned but seldom mastered. From strategic leadership to leadership in combat, Stew has honed his skills and now shares how anyone can become a leader using his Lead through Life Framework. Along with a full military career Stew has utilised the Lead through Life Framework as a father, husband and as an employee; evidence that it works at any level. With over two decades of leadership and mentoring learning in often dangerous environments along with a deep understanding of leadership in the corporate arena Stew now coaches and mentors students, online and 1:1 from across a variety of backgrounds and countries. Join Stew for a canter through the highlights of a military career where he will share; five ways to build resilience within yourself and your team and, how simplifying leadership can make it accessible to all.

We are all keen to progress our careers and as much as our managers should be looking out for us and helping us grow it's also important to ensure you're managing up to ensure you're giving your manager (and your manager's manager) what they need to be successful in their careers also. Unfortunately there will be a few of us who are in the unfortunate position of having a boss who lacks the awareness (or skills) to lead...how do you manage up in these situations? In this workshop, Cillín Hearns, director and owner of Results Coaching, will facilitate a discussion to address both scenarios so you can continue to grow in your career and become aware of how to help others in theirs.
