This KC Academy Leading for Organisational Impact training course can dramatically change your work, career, and life to be more productive and meaningful. It will give you the tools and a sense of purpose to change the way your team sees you. It will transform your role from a manager to a leader, coach, and facilitator.

In a nutshell, it will speed up the journey from average to excellence. 

The time for a renewed approach to leadership and organizational performance is at hand, and the need is urgent. Albert Einstein said that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is insanity. And yet, most organizations continue to have practices that reflect outdated circumstances and, as such, are inefficient, time-consuming, and frustrate both employees and clients. These organizations have too many managers and also a few leaders.

Unless you’re in a start-up, your organization is probably governed by a culture that represents the past. But the future is where you’re going to be spending most of our time. So, building a new culture, one that embraces challenges and change, is essential. It is the task of leadership.

This training course will highlight:

  • Anticipating the future
  • Getting ahead of the change curve
  • Creating an agile work environment
  • Understanding why the new generation of employees – the Millennials – are different and need new organization strategies to leverage their talent better
  • Building change into daily management practices
  • Welcoming new challenges with a can-do attitude
  • Incorporating leadership best practices to fit your context
  • Understanding the biochemical impact of effective leadership
