Shifting global priorities present significant challenges for organisational leaders. Most will need to learn new skills and develop new ways of thinking as organisations and executive roles are transforming. Executive teams will need to appreciate the systemic nature of a shifting landscape, whilst balancing the corporate scorecard. Long term drivers of success will be the organisation’s capacity for change, risk management, learning agility and the development of a new generation of skills and talent. Greater emphasis will be placed on developing new techniques for improving performance, as organisations move towards more flexible work environments, multidisciplinary teams, and the management of a multi-generational workforce.

What our learning partners had to say

It offers a study opportunity with a wide range of interesting themes and modules that are relevant to the new world of business in which we are operating. Even though the leadership module was a key part of the programme, there is also interconnectedness with all other modules.

It helped me to know that the investment I made in myself was already paying dividends for our company too. The programme also created some longer-term goals within me. Through the discussions, it helped me to improve my own thinking about where I see myself going in the next few years, and beyond that. Beyond the business side of things, that helped me personally.

Ruan Venter

This executive development programme offers comprehensive knowledge, considering the fast-paced, ever-changing and challenging global business environment. I therefore highly recommend it to leaders who are looking to consolidate their learnings with their business and take their careers to the next level.
