Introduction

This fast-paced seminar provides an opportunity to stand back from the day-to-day pressures of managerial life and focus on the wider arena. Rather than covering all areas of management, the program focuses on those topics that many Management Professionals find little time to address during their typical busy working day. The aim is for participants to gain a holistic view of their wider organizational and strategic context and give them the tools to formulate meaningful longer-term personal and organizational objectives.

The highlights of this seminar are:

• How to analyze the external and internal forces at work in an organization
• How to develop and communicate a compelling strategic vision
• How to measure and manage performance
• How to interpret organisational culture
• How to build influence and trust within and beyond the team
• How to delegate effectively
