About the workshop
Living and leading through a pandemic may well be the biggest challenge you face in your career. Change is innumerable and in this uncertain work environment, organisations need leaders with a firm grasp on all areas of their business who can drive innovation and project strength and strategic direction. As your responsibilities change in General Management and senior leadership roles, you must equip yourself with the mindset, skills and practical strategies to influence at the executive level, communicate with impact, foster a positive culture and drive performance across your business. There has never been a more important time for effective leadership, and now is the time to step up and develop essential skills for leading through this difficult time.
As part of our leadership pathways series, this innovative and current course focuses on the core leadership quadrants you will need to thrive as a General Manager and deliver real value to your team and organisation as you navigate the aftermath of the pandemic. During this time you may be busier than ever, but it is vital to make time to ensure your professional development is on track. Focus on developing vital aspects of your leadership toolkit once a week as you join our expert facilitator, network of general managers and senior leaders. Over four weeks, you will emerge prepared to think and lead strategically, generate innovative ideas and foster creativity in your teams, cultivate a culture of trust, and contribute to your organisation on a strategic and senior level.
Draw on the latest thinking, practical models, tools and strategies to establish your executive leadership presence, progress your career and deliver value for your business.
