SET UP YOUR ORGANIZATION FOR SUCCESS!
LEARN TO ADAPT AND NAVIGATE RELENTLESS CHANGE.

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!

Leadership Agility for Organizational Resilience

Course Description

The need to foster collaboration, drive innovative thinking, foster adaptability and agile mindsets are now more important than ever. 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.

Digital Agility: Leveraging Digital for Business Impact

Course Description

There's no use competing against AI or resisting the disruptive technological tide. Such effort didn’t yield much for those in the first industrial era who resisted and physically attached creators of the steam engine phenomenon an innovation that changed the then world forever.

Since AI would most likely open up other job opportunities than we currently have today, it is important that people within enterprises change their posture to learning and to improvement.

We do not want to become victims of technological disruption. We can position rather to become nimble, gain agility, adaptability and grow new competences that can make you win in the emerging world of work.

Workforce Agility for Organizational Impact

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.

On account of this ongoing complexity and dynamism of work, Learning Agility has become one of the most desired competencies for both new recruits as well as existing employees.
