21st Century Leaders: Business HorsePower

21st Century Leaders: Business HorsePower - 1425

Business is changing and as we enter the Impact Era it is more and more apparent that the old command and control structures will not serve us.We need to change the paradigm of leadership to one of collaboration where shared leadership is the norm. Organisation structures need to become flatter, more agile, adaptive and responsive and that means that leaders need to develop emotional intelligent skills to help their team members navigate the change.

This change from the Me to We economy, and appreciation that business is an ecosystem where everyone has a vital role to play in the success of the organisation means that leaders need to become masters of developing trust so they engage and empower team members to unlock their hidden own hidden potential and so deliver exceptional results for the business through increased productivity and profitability. This two day workshop will look at the business challenges of leading in the 21st century and the skills required to enable this change

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop 21st Century leadership to achieve outstanding results
  • Enhance trust, communicate honestly, and establish a positive climate
  • Champion change in the contemporary workplace
  • Appreciate the inter-relatedness of business and the fact it operates as an ecosystem
  • Build bridges of understanding in chaotic environments
