SIGN-UP FOR VIRTUAL WORKFORCE AGILITY THEMED SESSIONS.

The time has come for both workforce and management to reskill and retool.  Unprecedented change the world over is certainly a major driving force here. Organizational strategies and reviews are shifting from long term to more iterative approach. Innovation and critical thinking is now a toast of the shop floor as opposed to the era where same was domiciled in the top management. Organizational structures are becoming more fluid and flexible, a departure from the widespread hierarchical and bureaucratic system. Leadership is becoming less of command and control and gradually shifting to mentoring and coaching approaches, fostering in the process innovative cultures amongst other benefits.
In order to rise to emerging change; to quickly identity and respond to emerging opportunities; to win and to thrive as opposed to being victims of relentless change, businesses and organizations must begin to think and act differently. New thinking brings about new behaviours.
In an era where underdogs emerge without warning and technological disruptions are the order of the day, we want to join with you in your quest to set up your team for success this year and beyond – starting from where it matters most – Mind-Set. We understand human behaviour and motivation. We’ve helped organizations shift mindsets and win regardless of the times, now its your turn!

Agile Mindset for Navigating Disruption  Course Description
    • Why do people fail to access opportunities even where opportunities exist?
    • Why do employees miss much desired promotion time and time again?
    • Why do people fail to extend themselves and learn new skills even where advancement in their career depend on it?
    • Some people find it convenient to give reasons why they cannot make real progress in their jobs:
    • “I can’t learn new skills”;
    • “I’m too old to learn new skills?
    • “This is the only job I know to do; it’s too late to learn anything new”
It is a fact that Artificial Intelligence [AI] I will take away between 14-46% of jobs in years to come. The US Tech giants and emerging start-ups are relentless in pushing the AI agenda. With AI, efficiency is exponentially improved for less. With all indications, the gains will far out way any cons we may know. Probable potential impact will be the loss of certain kind of jobs. Implication of this reality is that people would perhaps need to learn new skills, upskill in existing domains or take on whole new careers entirely. For many this is a scary proposition but it ought not to be so.

Workforce Agility

    Course Description

When a company faces a major disruption in its markets—one that could fundamentally change the business—the way its managers perceive the disruption influences how they describe it to the rest of the organization, how they organize the response, how they allocate resources and ultimately how well the business fares.

A workforce that is unable to promptly address business challenges today implies that business is left unguarded and exposed to the weight of relentless disruptive forces largely because employees are significantly irresponsive on account of rigid and unpliable mindsets.

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