The five forces are: Technology, Institutional change, Demographics, the Environment and shifting Societal values. These are the T.I.D.E.S. of change. A guaranteed paradigm shaker, this powerful presentation or workshop overviews each of the trends, providing gripping examples, insightful case studies and powerful implications tailored for your business.
Leading in a Changing World
How to be a world class leader in the new world of work
To be successful in the turbulent decade that lies ahead, leaders – and all the people they lead – need to learn to deal with complexity, uncertainty and constant change. To do this effectively we must understand the context in which we find ourselves, be confident in identifying, anticipating and responding to the change drivers that will disrupt our world in the next few years, and learn new habits to help us personally navigate the turbulence. This multimedia-driven, often humorous presentation begins by painting a vivid picture of the changing world that will affect every aspect of our lives, from work to home and everything in between. We will focus on three key drivers of change, namely: a changing world, a changing workforce and a changing workplace. From this platform three essential leadership habits for leading in the new world at home or in the office become clear: adaptive intelligence, a balcony perspective and conversations. This is not your standard “leadership” workshop. Rather, it is an eye opening session that will set you on a new path for personal and organisational success. Unexpected wisdom meets practical reality to inspire your next developmental steps.

Back to the future
Engaging in the what and how of ‘Strategic Planning’ has been part of every business school curriculum for the past several decades. Within this context we have all been taught Porter’s model of formulating strategy and it has been a served as a reliable framework as to how strategy ‘gets done’. As a result sophisticated methodologies around data capturing, analyzing that data, execution and implementation have all been centre stage to our understanding of ‘strategic planning’. The process has consumed vast amounts of time, energy and budget. Will this understanding of strategic intent and practice need to change as we navigate the uncertain future? We believe it will – and must. Rethinking Strategy: Back to the Future navigates this change.

Roots & Routes

You lead out of who you are. Authentic leadership is always about character rather than personality whilst the context for leadership has shifted in the connected and globalized world in which leaders lead. To exercise leadership you need to build a systematic framework that will yield a bigger picture and give you access to a larger field of understanding and action. This starts with personal mastery. It starts with knowing yourself and building on one’s strengths. This dynamic workshop offers profound insights into why we act, relate and lead the way we do. It can be applied to a wide context within your business including leadership development, personal mastery, sales, customer relations, teamwork and really any part of your life and business that has to do with people!
