In today’s complex and fast-changing organisations, now more than ever, leaders need to be agile, responsive and visionary. All too often, critical decisions have to be made in ambiguous situations where not all the risks are quantifiable. It’s at these times that leaders need to have the courage to act with conviction.

It’s not about their own ability to adapt to change – they must be able to lead with a strategic approach (not a tactical one), spot and act upon trends, and look forwards rather than backwards to achieve lasting success.

This insightful, engaging and practical workshop builds on participants’ existing management and leadership skills, so they’re more able to deal with the immediate challenges they face in an agile way. They will learn how to instigate and implement change, create and communicate a compelling vision, and motivate and inspire their teams.

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • Have greater clarity over what is expected of a leader in an agile working environment

  • Know how to work and communicate effectively with different stakeholders

Sample Participant Journey

The learning solutions featured on our website can all stand on their own as high-quality and high-impact learning interventions for your team – however, they are at their best when delivered as part of a wider learning programme, helping you achieve your strategic imperatives and your people benefit from much deeper and expansive learning journeys. We work with you as consultants, collaborators and design partners to establish learning outcomes and create the perfect programme - below is an example of what your people’s learning journey might look like.
