Experienced Manager Workshop PROGRAMME

Experienced Managers need to lead in a new context. The pace of change, competition and economic conditions demand constantly adaptive approaches to delivering to the customer.
The new context requires leaders to manage complexity, balance competing priorities and collaborate across organisational boundaries; influencing upwards, down and across the organisation to drive tangible results. Leaders need to act authentically to engage individuals and teams. They need to become a coaching enabler and develop high performance conditions in which, innovation and change are embraced.
Experienced managers have been leading individuals and teams for some time, they are organisationally experienced and technically excellent. Leadership development, for them, has to respect their experience and tenure; it needs to be immediately engaging, relevant, time sensitive and fully applicable to their context.
Our approach to meeting the needs of your experienced manager is designed to be tailored specifically to your organisation. We listen to your context and then tailor proven modules to meet your needs. We bring our expertise and experience, then through our facilitative approach, we engage your leaders helping them to respond specifically to their context.

Our Difference

Research amongst CEO’s highlights that developing leaderships is essential, yet only 7% of these CEO’s believed that their organisations were doing it effectively. The main reason cited for this was that all too often organisations default to off-the-shelf solutions that consume time without achieving lasting impact for either participant or the organisation. The challenge is to build the right set of practical leadership skills and mindsets of leaders, which improves performance of the broader organisation.
Building leaders requires delving deeply into the capabilities, mindsets and behaviours of individuals and those they work with. It requires addressing, in a hands on way, who leaders ‘are’ in addition to their skills and knowledge. Typically we start with ‘leading self’ to develop the underpinning capabilities of leaders

Modular Delivery

Our modular approach allows for the selected subject area to be specified for your needs.
