Welcome back to Merlin Leading 2.0 – APAC Virtual Module 2

Hello Merlin Leaders,

I am really looking forward to working with you again during the second module of your Leading the Merlin Way 2.0 programme on-line starting on Monday 27th May 2024.

We will continue the journey towards you being an even better leader than ever before and being an exemplar of the Merlin values.

Our Learning Outcomes

We have continued to reshape and redesign the programme to reflect the demands and opportunities of the Go Forward strategy. By continuing to apply your learning from the programme, you will:

  • Lead in a way that supports the delivery of the Go Forward strategy

  • Be an exemplar of the new Merlin values

  • Use the ALIGNED methodology to accelerate the transformation from Merlin 1.0 to Merlin 2.0

Your Preparation

Here are some things to think about ahead of the second training session.

  • Please take some time to revisit the plans and notes you made from the first training session.

  • Please remember to bring your workbook with you!

  • Consider what have you applied most successfully since the first session. What has been most successful? What challenges have you had?

  • Consider what you can do to ensure that you gain even more from the second event than you did from the first? How will you ensure that the experience is even more powerful?

  • Work based-project, many of you will be at various stages of your work-based project and most of you will have completed your presentations. Please be prepared to give a short update on day 1 of the virtual workshop (you will be updating your peers). You will be placed in small sub-groups and will be asked to give a short overview of your project status, your learning from the presentation (if you have completed one) and your future steps.
