Leading for Strategic Success will help you to develop your leadership capability, whether you are in a profit-based business, a non-profit organization or a public sector body.

This training focusses on leadership of course, and also on the group dynamics caused by change. You will develop a deeper appreciation of how leadership is exercised through relationships, groups and organisations; shaped by the situation and the needs of your people.

You will explore the power of leading with an understanding of the concepts, methods and tools to think strategically and view your organization and its partners, competitors and industry as an integrated, complex system.
