In a complex and uncertain business environment a major challenge is to lead with strategic agility and foresight. The characteristics that make strategic leaders stand out is their ability to anticipate change, use their insight to spot opportunities, and actively shape the future of the organisation they lead.
A global study of 35 countries indicated that the ability to think and act strategically is the most valuable attribute of effective business leaders. Research shows that employees value strategic thinking as the most effective leadership quality, twice as important than communication. Leading strategically requires a strategic mindset, forward thinking, and the ability to make sound choices to place the company ahead of competition.
This one-day workshop focuses on enhancing strategic thinking and strategic leadership skills. The intention of the program is to enable leaders to think more clearly about future challenges and design an action plan to drive business growth.
Who should attend?
Executives, general managers, business leaders and senior managers responsible for developing strategy for their organisation or business unit and those who are interested in enhancing their strategic leadership capability.
