Course Description

The constantly shifting context of today’s business world demands a new approach to leadership. This new style of leading and managing requires in-the-moment approaches to relationships, work and change. You will explore the dynamic between planning and the in-the-moment leadership of others in execution of that plan. This highly experiential seminar is based on leading edge methods for leadership action and concentrates on teamwork, building relationships, and problem solving through structured practice. Acceptance, cooperation, supportive behaviour, interactive listening, and the ability to take forward-moving action on a given task are the rules of the game. It is a new and required approach to the successful navigation of complexity and change.
