Senior leaders are responsible for the performance and health of their organisations, as well as developing and cultivating talent within their workforce. The leadership in today’s business environment demands individuals in senior positions to be agile and diverse, to have a significant impact on the business and positively influence those around them. A senior leader needs to extend themselves beyond being just a competent manager. The industry demands innovative thinking and excellent leadership for business success. This is can be achieved by being conscientious about how processes are conducted and how you can rally subordinates to prioritise company objectives. People respond to good leadership, and this influence is pivotal for the success of a company.
UKZN Extended Learning’s Senior Leadership Development programme is designed to assist senior executives to strengthen their abilities to lead change and transformation in their respective industries. Our delegates are also trained to work more effectively in uncertain and volatile environments such as the conditions brought about by COVID-19, to harness technology, and to align the organisation’s strategy to performance and the achievement of results. Our learning methodology creates a platform for interactive facilitation which allows for delegates to share and exchange leadership experience while acquiring knowledge and skills from the industry experts.
Delegates will learn how to identify the gaps in their roles that are required to meet the needs of the business, colleagues or clients. Fully understanding and immersing oneself in the company culture, is a way for individuals in leadership in making the best decisions for the company. The ability to be versatile and adept will assist in making the necessary changes that will help the business thrive in uncertain times. By confronting the reality of what is happening in the world right now, senior leaders will learn how to successfully spearhead operational success in areas of management. Embracing innovative thinking and an organisational approach can help every leader withstand any challenge in the business environment.
The upcoming intake for our Senior Leadership Development Programme commences on the 28th of July 2021. If you would like to secure your place or find out more information about this programme, please click here.
