Why Choose this Training Course?
The human tragedy and economic devastation that the pandemic has bestowed on the global condition, forces all to profoundly reflect on how we rebuild the future. In facing this challenge, the role of leadership has never been more critical to regenerate, repair and restore the human condition. Unpredictability, uncertainty and chaos have become the “new normal” in the leadership environment. Recent events have reinforced our thinking that leadership is not solely concerned with immediacy, growth and profitability, rather in these unprecedented times it requires a broader perspective that balances the competing demands of the organisation and the welfare of its people, whilst responding positively to the wider global and environmental issues that currently face the planet.
This ‘holistic approach” demands praxis, pragmatism and indeed ‘prophecy’ to build the robust, responsive and sustainable organisation. The current challenge to leaders is to embrace digital transformation to become agile and innovatively adaptive. Whilst the traditional qualities of focused drive, conceptual thinking and emotional intelligence remain fundamental, dealing with crisis has emerged as an area for serious consideration for leadership to address. In the new normal “crisis does not build leadership characteristics, rather it reveals it the qualities that underpin it”. Essentially leadership is a never-ending learning experience.
