The volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business environment presents unique challenges for organisations that want to ensure longevity. Today, the preeminent factor in ensuring long-term business survival is leadership: decisive, accountable and strategic leadership. People with the ability to create and sustain engaging business climates for harnessing the thoughts and ideas of others, to navigate the demanding and erratic business environments in the short and long term.
The Authentic Leadership seminar is a proven and practical approach to developing skills to improve climate and sustainability drive through performance. As people go higher in organisations and take on more responsibilities, their dependence on others to achieve increases exponentially. They come under more pressure in their work relationships as they need to make more complex decisions. They may have the technical and analytical skills required, but it is the skills for harnessing the thoughts and ideas of people and building effective relationships that challenge them. This is where leadership comes in.
This programme is not about describing what it takes to be a great leader but about crucial, practical, unique steps each participant should take to get there. Each participant is given their own specific steps to actualise their unique leadership style in a 24-week support programme that presents unique leadership pathways to the different individuals on the programme according to their needs. It provides participants with the mindset and skill set to continue to strengthen their leadership backbone to ensure that it is kept firm, to avoid drooping as they grow in their career.
