Programme Overview

This workshop, Cultivating Strategic Mindsets in Leadership is targeted at Directors and Senior Management Team members who are seeking to be more strategic in their interactions as senior leaders within an organisation. It helps to address a challenge that many leaders face when transitioning into more strategic senior roles: shifting from “doing” to “guiding”. Strategic thinking focuses on finding and developing unique opportunities to create value for your organisation, so cultivating a mindset that constantly challenges conventional thinking is key for both Board & Management.

The workshop aims to help participants to become helpful strategic thought partners to their colleagues and teams. It is not about the latest strategic thinking or analytical tools – it is about understanding and shifting behaviours in order to interact more effectively as a senior leader or advisor – building capacity so you are in a unique position to guide the development and delivery of your strategy and maximise the impact that your business.

Participants will learn how to identify current behaviours or patterns, consider “default” behaviours to let go of, and practice new ways of engaging in order to provide a creative dialogue platform where different perspectives on critical and complex issues can be shared.. Key change leadership concepts and tools will be shared, including Adaptive Leadership, the Iceberg Model and the Influence Model.

The workshop is designed to be highly interactive, with a combination of presentations and plenary discussions, breakout group discussions, self-reflection and peer coaching.
