Organizational success depends heavily on the leadership in place.
Leadership has a say in everything that goes on in the organization. Organizational attitude and behavior, work environment, conflict management, organizational structure, power and politics, culture and many other regulatory aspects are all affected by the actions of leadership.
This course looks at leadership from that perspective and provides participants with the opportunity to acquire an understanding of how leadership shapes and affects organizational outcomes.
Workshop elaborates on what it takes to become a great manager by focusing on two distinct managerial requirements: first developing business and economic acumen without which no manager can make value-adding decisions, and second by bringing out the best in people.
Participants on this interactive course will have the opportunity to strengthen their practice of adaptive leadership no matter what role they play in their organizations. Also, this course presents tools and tactics to help participants lead and mobilize people and tackle tough problems while reaching high.
This course includes the use of ExperienceChange™ simulation software which is an expert-guided program designed to help participants execute ideas while teaching the essentials of successful change.
ExperienceChange™ simulates a year-in-the-life of a team-leading innovation and transformation in an organization that is facing increasing competition and changing product landscapes.
