When a company faces a major disruption within its market—one that could fundamentally change the business, the way its managers perceive the disruption influences how they describe it to the rest of the their teams, how they organize the response, how they allocate resources and ultimately how well the business fares.
Consequently, a team that is unable to promptly address business challenges eventually leaves the business unguarded and exposed to the weight of relentless and disruptive forces.

This course is designed to help teams gain the orientation and posture required to succeed in a rapidly changing environment hence making success predictable.

Long gone are the days when leaders emerge in organizations solely on account of their technical competences and without consideration for critical leadership competences. In settings as these, Senior Business leaders are often shocked to find that such leaders fail to deliver real leadership to their teams seeing that their team’s output consistently dwindle within a short span of time. This course is designed to transform leaders from ‘Barely there’ and sometimes even from ‘Destructive’ tendencies to being ‘Transformational’, tooling them with leadership essentials to lead and thrive in today’s complex environment.
Target Audience: Supervisors, Mid-Level Leadership, Top-Level Management

Grit & Growth Mindset

Course Description

The rate of change in the world today is unprecedented. These changes are driving aggressively, digital transformations agendas, development of new business models and whole new consumer behaviors and preferences. These disruptions are indeed compelling organizational evolutions in diverse shapes and forms. More importantly, they are driving the need for a different kind of workforce, a workforce that is innovative, solutions focused and resilient. Why? Because navigating layers of disruptions would require a posture of grit and resilience; an orientation and a readiness to grow; to sense and seize opportunities regardless of the shape or form in which they may present themselves. Having a Grit and Growth mindset means that individuals and organizations are able to rise above - even use as 'fuel', the challenges presented by the changing business landscape as opposed to shrinking away and excusing themselves from it. It means seeing the business and associated challenges from a whole new perspective; being comfortable with ambiguity and having the stamina to drive relentless change that truly impacts and transforms both the organization, the people and the customer.
