The Essential Ingredient for Business Success

Format availability:

Introduction to the course

Our legacy as executive leaders will stand or fall on our ability to grow and develop others who can succeed us. Good Leadership is never about taking the glory for ourselves. Like it or not, we will one day have to stand aside and hand the organisation's reins down to our successor. The Leading Beyond Ego training course will help you to leave your legacy by growing leaders today who can lead the organization after we have stepped aside.

Growing leaders to take over means letting go of our ego, delegating and deputizing more, and managing to transition from being the one who gives the orders to the one people come to for advice and wisdom. This training course is a powerful and thought-provoking look at how people at the very top of their game can leave a legacy that lasts. Leaving the organization in safe hands and ensuring the long-term sustainability of the organization will cement your reputation as a true leader, and it is a job that starts today.
