Upcoming Workshop: Leading Sustainable Organizational Transformation and Growth – 9th and 10th June, 2016

Organizations, faced with fierce competition, demanding customers and economic pressures, must learn to align themselves swiftly and effectively with the critical changes required for success.

Organizational transformations are inherently complex, multi-dimensional processes. Leaders today are aggressively trying to transform their companies, seeking radically to improve performance by changing behaviour and capabilities at all levels. Unfortunately, most leadership groups lack a proven way of thinking about the challenge. Without balance, integration, and focus, no disjointed set of initiatives can lead to significant performance-boosting transformation.

Our 2-day workshop addresses these concerns and helps leaders and organizations be more innovative, agile, effective, and future-ready. Using the Whole System Transformation model, we provide you the insights, framework and road map to transform your organization. This model transfers easily to any system or situation and is useful in any culture, industry or with any challenge.

What is an MDP?
Management development programmes or Executive Development Programmes are customized, and highly targeted short term workshops that aim to excite managers and leaders intellectually and also build competencies to face the challenges and opportunities at higher positions in the diverse work contexts.
Why are Management Development Programmes necessary?
Most new managers feel as though they have been thrown into the middle of the ocean without a life-jacket. Mastering managerial skills will provide managers with the confidence and skills required to manage themselves as well as the team. We have also designed the programs in a way that will provide intensive input for the more experienced manager. The training programs serve to sharpen the essential lessons which can be applied to real life circumstances.
What is the duration of the programme?
Our workshops offer intensive training and knowledge transfer in a short span of 2 days.
What is the format of the workshop?
The workshops are conducted as Instructor-led classroom trainings. These workshops are designed and delivered by experienced faculty from the corporate or academic world with proven expertise of executive education. The venue for the workshops will be a five star hotel where lunch and refreshments will also be served.
I already work as a manager or above and know the subject. Why should I enrol for this workshop?
Our management development programmes offer an enriching mix of academic concepts as well as real world, practical aspects. To support and enrich the core curriculum, the workshops integrate a variety of learning resources including practical and experiential learning through cross disciplinary case studies and sharing of real time problems.
How many participants will be there in each workshop?
Each workshop will have no more than 30 participants to ensure effective learning and personalized attention to the needs of all participants.
I like the programme, but the price is too high. What can I do?
We offer 10% discount for early bird enrolments for all our programmes. However, if you are really keen on attending the workshop but the price is a constraint, your best bet is to ask your Manager or Training Head to nominate you for the workshop, and thereby the cost can be borne by your company.

    I was in The Positive Change Management Class which Roland facilitated this February 2014 in Ghana. His passion and style is to immediately let course participants appreciate the change process and to see themselves as change agents. Expert that he is, Roland gradually switched roles with course participants. He stepped back and soon the trainees were leading the class discussions.
