Description

To keep up as a leader today, one needs to have a finger on the pulse of global leadership. The Executive Development Programme (EDP) at the GSB equips executives and senior managers to adapt and stay ahead of the curve by exploring the best leadership practices and latest strategies for sustaining a competitive advantage in the long term.

This cutting edge programme focuses on strategy, values-based leadership, change, and innovative thinking. It takes a novel approach to learning and unlearning. Delegates will update their knowledge, absorb new skills and gain an appreciation of the dynamics of the increasingly complex emerging markets. They will also be required to shed mental models that are no longer effective.

The assumption is that executives and senior managers already understand their strengths and weaknesses and have acquired the necessary management skills. Rather than personal or traditional functional skills, the Executive Development Programme is about developing your organisation’s ability to leverage core competencies, to stay ahead through innovation and to pursue heroic goals despite resource constraints.

This leadership course provides an important opportunity to learn from other leaders across industries, through lectures, case studies, syndicate discussions, as well as interaction with faculty, other participants and guest speakers. Delegates will broaden and deepen their understanding of an ever-changing South African, African, and global economy.
