Introduction

Managers face many challenges caused by the relentless pace of change, whether it’s new business models or the latest technical innovation threatening to disrupt a traditional industry.  Too often, these changes are seen as threats, but with the right analysis tools, an ability to think strategically and an understanding of how to communicate and implement the necessary organizational change, the best organizations are able to seize the opportunities in each situation. Many organizations don’t have the ability to adapt their strategy quickly enough to respond to, or anticipate the effects of strategic change.

This training seminar shows you how to fix this by ensuring your leadership has real impact. You will develop a deeper appreciation of your prime leadership responsibility to make sense of external events, decide how to respond then lead your people to success.

You will explore the power of proven concepts, methods and tools to enable you think strategically about your industry, organization, partners and competitors as a ‘big picture’. You will raise your sights to the real leadership challenges you and your organization face, rather than the technical, operational and managerial challenges many managers are more familiar with.

You will gain the competencies to identify and remove barriers to success and learn how to deploy a complete strategic management system to effectively and quickly make the right changes to deliver strategic success.

This training seminar will highlight:

  • Deep understanding of how to increase your leadership impact
  • Challenging assumptions to reveal and remove performance ‘road blocks’
  • Developing your ability to see the bigger picture and understand its impact
  • Insights into exercising leadership more effectively for high-impact
  • Communicating your insights to influence others’ behaviour and actions
