The demands of modern leadership are very different from those most organizations are used to. The need to foster collaboration, drive innovative thinking, foster adaptability and agile mindsets are now more important than ever.
With the rate of flux and complexity, organizational leaders are required to do more; to grow new competences essential to leading their teams in achieving results, enabling their organizations gain competitive edge.
More specifically and for example, traditional leadership postures of Command and Control will no longer suffice. With a business terrain now marked with much complexity and ambiguity, novel solutions arising from a climate of respect, trust and psychological safety has never been more vital than it is today.
This course is designed to transform leaders from ‘Barely there’ and sometimes even from ‘Destructive’ tendencies to being ‘Transformational’, reskilling them with leadership essentials to Re-Think, lead and thrive in today’s complex environment.

Graduate & Management Trainee Agility Activator Program

Course Description

Getting organizations to be ‘fit for purpose’ and ready for future challenges has never been more important than it is today. To stay relevant and as we continue to see, new skills will be required.

According to Mckinsey, 90% of organizations believe they have skill gaps critical for functioning in a disruptive era but only 16% believe that they are fully prepared to fill those gaps. Whilst organizations have made laudable progress in bridging knowledge, attitude and skill gaps especially for new entrants and emerging leaders in the past decades, it is clear that a whole lot more needs to be done in positioning today's workforce in being responsive, adaptive and agile in the face of a disruptive environment.

In the light of the above therefore, business leaders need ensure that their learning and development spend feeds directly to ever evolving strategic directions and objectives of their organizations.

The GRADUATE & MANAGEMENT TRAINEE AGILITY ACTIVATOR PROGRAM has been carefully designed to deliver the most critical adaptive skills essential to winning in today's business environment for both graduate and management training participants.
