Managers face many challenges caused by the relentless pace of change, whether it’s new business models or the latest technical innovation threatening to disrupt a traditional industry. Too often, these changes are seen as threats, but with the right analysis tools, an ability to think strategically and an understanding of how to communicate and implement the necessary organisational change, the best organisations are able to seize the opportunities in each situation. Many organisations don’t have the ability to adapt their strategy quickly enough to respond to, or anticipate the effects of strategic change.

This seminar shows you how to fix this by ensuring your leadership has real impact. You will develop a deeper appreciation of your prime leadership responsibility to make sense of external events, decide how to respond then lead your people to success.

You will explore the power of proven concepts, methods and tools to enable you think strategically about your industry, organization, partners and competitors as a ‘big picture’. You will raise your sights to the real leadership challenges you and your organisation face, rather than the technical, operational and managerial challenges many managers are more familiar with.

You will gain the competencies to identify and remove barriers to success and learn how to deploy a complete strategic management system to effectively and quickly make the right changes to deliver strategic success.

This training seminar will highlight:

  • Deep understanding of how to increase your leadership impact
  • Challenging assumptions to reveal and remove performance ‘road blocks’
  • Developing your ability to see the bigger picture and understand its impact
  • Insights into exercising leadership more effectively for high-impact
  • Communicating your insights to influence others’ behaviour and actions

  • Apply new approaches to leadership and change management
  • Be more resilient and adaptable in responding to change and uncertainty
  • Develop a more robust and explicit theory of leadership
  • Transform your approach to your team and your organization
  • Understand how to recognise and respond to and your leadership opportunities and challenges


This seminar uses a range of leadership and strategy models, methods and tools along with group work, reflective exercises, situational simulations, individual feedback and case studies.

A feature of this seminar is the use of a strategic management system that provides a complete framework to help you lead the development and delivery of a strategy for your organisation. We also provide you with insights into aspects of your approach to dealing with uncertainty and handling conflict through leadership assessment instruments.


You will learn new approaches to leadership and change management to enable you to help build a more effective organisation that is able to realise its potential by:

  • Developing a greater capability for leadership
