Prepare your leaders for future challenges!
An enormous untapped potential lies in the diversity of a companies employees and the varied skills, talents and background of its employees. Leading with Impact is a Leadership and change management programme designed to develop collective leadership capacities across generations, departments, and teams in your company to tackle pressing challenges of our times and increase the overall performance.
Disruption, diversity, globalisation and digitalisation are some of the major challenges our world currently faces. At the same time, a new generation of young people is entering the market, placing new demands on companies. Along with these changes, new needs emerge such as participation, flexibility, self-responsibility and a trust-based cooperation. These new ways of working often do not fit into the existing working cultures and management structures. Adverse consequences include misunderstandings and risks of conflict across generations, hierarchies and business units.
To effectively address these challenges, new sets of skills and competencies are required. Foremost among them is the ability to find innovative solutions and design new strategies with new business models. Leading with Impact is a leadership and change management programme which prepares current and future leaders to effectively address these challenges and offers an intense and direct exchange between executives and young talents of the Y and Z generations. Participants reflect on their own leadership style and learn the necessary skills to become the leaders of the 21st century.
