About the course

Changes in our business world have never been as rapid and as fundamental as today. We live in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world where Leaders and Managers need to be agile and have the right leadership skills to cope with today's VUCA business world.

However, those companies that do not perceive these changes and are unable or unwilling to properly respond to disruption will soon be attacked, then eliminated by more agile competitors.

How can you prepare your organization for change and disruption?

Register for this 2-day leadership training and experience what you can do within your “circle of control” to ensure your company uses this “wind of change” to gain a competitive advantage. We offer you lots of windmills in this leadership course.

Your immediate takeaway:

  • 7 work hacks that will help you introduce “New Work” concepts, even in a hierarchical and traditional organization
  • The 4 NOPA principles as a roadmap for the transformation process in your company
  • A free software that allows you to immediately use the knowledge of everyone in your organization
  • Excellent opportunities to learn from other professionals as you broaden your professional network

All methods presented in the training are easy to implement in companies where parts of the organization are not, or not yet 100% ready for the change. We present you highly effective work hacks on how you can succeed even in such traditional environments.

This 2-day leadership training course combines proven-by-practice methods with new insights and ideas that will grow your strategic thinking skills. You will gain a wider perspective of management practice through breakout sessions, exercises, and case applications. The MCE Senior Associate and facilitator of this training is an award-winning keynote speaker and executive coach. His recently published “NOPA” – approach turned into an Amazon bestseller.
