The Network, from Uspire, is a unique blend of commercial coaching and mentoring, peer-to-peer learning and thought-provoking events, that combine to create the finest commercial leaders in the world.

Designed specifically for high potential commercial leaders seeking to step up into future C-suite roles, The Network focuses on delivering tangible business results whilst creating and nurturing high performance talent.

Our Discovery Day Series is an exciting opportunity for commercial leaders to experience the value of The Network in one high-energy and motivational day. Each day is designed to help commercial leaders sense check their own leadership and understand how they can lead their teams to excellence.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND A NETWORK DISCOVERY DAY?

High potential commercial leaders who are already, or on a pathway to, board or C-suite roles will benefit greatly from the Discovery Day Series. The leaders who attend are usually seeking to grow their impact by working confidentially with a peer group unrelated to their business. This allows them to bring the outside in, and widen their perspective around leading business growth.

DISCOVER YOUR  
MOTIVATORS

Why Motivation?
Motivation is the inner energy that drives
action and enables success. A motivated
team will flow and perform at its best.

This starts with a motivated leader.

At Uspire we use Motivational Maps to help leaders understand their motivation at a deeper level and learn what they can do to improve results, increase resilience and ultimately be happier at work.

W hat to expect on the day: 
The Discover your Motivator day is lead by
Kate Turner , the Uspire motivation expert partner.

You will complete your own Motivational
Map
® in advance and the morning will be
spent exploring your personal mix of our 9
motivators.

After lunch our Network Coach will run a
POD (Peer Oriented Discussion) coaching
session, exactly like our live Uspire
Network Member POD’s
. This provides an opportunity to explore the speaker topic as well as share and debate live business and people challenges with the group.

Your key takeaways: 
1. Your own Motivational Map®, giving
you:

  • A better understanding of what motivates you and what drives you to be your most productive
  • A powerful insight into how to motivate your team members, strengthen relationships and build trust.

2. An introduction to a small group of like minded senior leaders to widen your network, bring the outside in, and share experiences.

3. An insight into the benefits of Network
membership.

Why Style? 
Understanding your preferred style energy
as a leader and being able to adapt it to
connect to others is fundamental for leaders.

The first step is to hold a mirror up to your
own style. At Uspire we use Insights
Discovery Profiling to harness your strengths as a leader and ensure that you are able to flex your approach to get the best from your stakeholders and customers.

What to expect on the day: 
The Discover your Style day is led by  Amanda Downs , Uspire Director of Commercial Leadership.

Discovery Profile

personal mix of the four colour energies
revealed by this powerful tool.

After lunch our Network Coach will run a
POD (Peer Oriented Discussion) coaching
session, exactly like our live Uspire
Network Member POD’s
. This provides an opportunity to explore the speaker topic as well as share and debate live business and people challenges with the group.

Your key takeaways: 
1. Your own Insights Discovery Profile,
giving you:

  • An insight into your own
    preferred style as a leader and
    how that impacts others
    • A tool to recognise style in others
      so that you can adapt your own
      style to connect more deeply
      • Feedback and coaching from an
        accredited practitioner

2. An introduction to a small group of like minded senior leaders to widen your network, bring the outside in, and share experiences.
