Strategic Leadership with Impactful Influence
Senior leaders are responsible for their organisation’s performance and health, as well as developing and cultivating talent within the workforce. Today’s business environment demands that those in senior positions are agile and diverse in order to have a significant impact on the business and positively influence those around them. A senior leader needs to extend themselves beyond just being a competent manager. Industry demands innovative thinking and excellent leadership for business success. This can be achieved by being conscious of how processes are conducted and how one can rally employees to prioritise company objectives. People respond to good leadership which is pivotal to a company’s success.
UKZN Extended Learning’s Senior Leadership Development programme is designed to assist senior executives to strengthen their ability to lead change and transformation in their industries. Delegates are also trained to work more effectively in uncertain and volatile environments such as the conditions brought about by COVID-19, to harness technology, and to align the organisation’s strategy with performance and the achievement of results. The learning methodology creates a platform for interactive facilitation which enables delegates to share and exchange leadership experiences while acquiring knowledge and skills from industry experts.
Delegates will learn how to identify the gaps in their roles to meet the needs of the business, colleagues or clients. Fully understanding and immersing oneself in the company culture, is a way for leaders to make the best decisions. The ability to be versatile and adept will assist in making the necessary changes that will help the business thrive in uncertain times. By confronting the reality of what is happening in the world, senior leaders will learn how to successfully spearhead operational success in areas of management. Embracing innovative thinking and an organisational approach can help leaders to withstand any challenge in the business environment.
The intake for the Senior Leadership Development Programme commences on 28 July 2021. To secure a place or find out more about this programme, click here.
