About this Event

Our Emerging Leaders team tackles one of young workplace leaders’ most requested topics: how to have difficult management conversations.

Whether it’s performance reviews, missed deadlines, or office politics, you can’t get far leading and managing human beings without rubbing up against their fallibility. And your colleagues won’t get far without rubbing up against yours. So, what does it look like to be a Christian in the workplace and to hold the space for difficult conversations in a gracious, present and Christlike way? What do we need to ask, how do we need to listen, and when is it right to speak?

If all of life matters to God, then so does our work, and so do our conversations at work. Even, and perhaps especially, the difficult ones. And yet senior leaders say that the number one weakness of ‘frontline’ leaders is their ability to have difficult conversations.

LICC’s ‘Emerging Leaders’ programme is for 20s-30s taking their first management and leadership roles. It’s time to wave goodbye to your inner imposter, cultivate an awareness of God in your nine-to-five, and learn how to make a difference at work. This one-off Emerging Leaders event is a chance to see what our full programme is all about, as we tackle one of young leaders’ most requested topics: difficult conversations.

LICC’s Emerging Leaders team lead this interactive workshop that weaves together theological reflection, real world context, and practical actions that you can take to work. While the event is aimed at younger leaders, it is open to anyone wanting to learn how to better bring their faith to their work, workplaces and fellow workers.

Charles Hippsley heads up the area of our work that focuses on equipping Christians for their working lives and helping local churches to support them in their calling. In addition to leading workshops and seminars himself, Charles also manages our team of associate speakers, oversees our workplace training programmes and coordinates the development of new work-focussed resources. Charles loves to cycle around the Oxfordshire countryside where he and his wife live and he’s one of the world’s most unflappable people.

Tim Yearsley leads LICC’s engagement with 18s-30s across the UK, working from his home base of sunny Nottingham. He’s enthusiastic about helping Christians live authentic lives of faith in this culture. In his spare time he plays in a metal band and enjoys international film, running, and being told that he’s pretentious by his wife.

Beth Yearsley is People & Development Manager at the University of Nottingham Students’ Union. She is an HR expert with experience in organisational design and countless difficult conversations. Beth’s own research has centred around innovative practices and transformational leadership in the not-for-profit sector. She loves a good workout and a large glass of wine. As long as it’s red.
