If you scour the market, you'll find the investment for the 'Work of Leaders' Five Session program is a low-cost/ low-time commitment option at £1,249 per participant compared with academic institutions and business schools offering strategy courses at anything from 4x -10x higher cost.
Coupled with the advice and guidance you get from 'practitioners' as opposed to professors or lecturers from the business schools or consultants from the likes of the large corporate consulting firms who know a lot of the theory but have little real-world business experience, your investment will be a wise one.
VISION is an overused but much-misunderstood term that has the power to create inspired people all working towards an IMAGINED FUTURE CONDITION.
The 'Work of Leaders' includes crafting a vision of new possibilities for the future through the process of exploration, being bold (not reckless) and testing assumptions.
ALIGNMENT means GAINING BUY-IN from your team and all relevant STAKEHOLDERS.
Effective leaders build alignment by communicating two-way with clarity, engaging in dialogue, and providing inspiration so everyone moves in the same direction.
EXECUTION means TURNING THE IMAGINED FUTURE condition into a REALITY.
Leaders must champion execution through momentum, structure, and ongoing two-way feedback, to enable the group to capitalise on its talents while making the vision a reality.
You'll learn about the priorities that influence your leadership style, along with others that can be used to achieve effective influence and achievement of the desired end results:
Pioneering | Energising | Affirming | Inclusive | Humble
Deliberate | Resolute | Commanding
