This programme is about navigating the space middle leaders find themselves in, as the channel between senior leaders and employees. The middle leader needs to find his/her True North and use that as a reference as they lead upwards, downwards, transversally and as they step into various roles.
This programme will help middle leaders navigate their way as they understand, in detail, each business function and the end-to-end value chain. The high-performance mindset required to lead teams into the future is a key focus of the middle leader development programme.
These skills will allow the emerging leader to harness their personal power, to make decisions in the context of their environment, and enhance their leadership effectiveness.
The shift from the fourth industrial revolution to the fifth industrial revolution has been accelerated by the COVID-19 global pandemic. This has amplified the need for leaders to up-skill to be able to lead teams differently.
This course will prepare middle leaders to boldly navigate and lead with confidence: upwards, downwards and in all the demanding roles required of a middle leader.
The importance of harnessing your True North (your purpose and values) as a middle leader is relevant as the demands on you have become increasingly complex. You will learn how to lead purposefully as well as foster the key business skills to become a high-performance leader.
80 hours of virtual classroom learning over 5 months. The 80 hours are divided up over 2-hour virtual classroom sessions on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
