Leadership Accelerated Performance

Managers oftentimes find themselves taking up responsibilities which they may not have been adequately prepared for and therefore lack sufficient managerial skills required for effective performance and productivity.   Using the experiential learning approach, the Leadership Accelerated Performance  (LEAP) workshop is highly interactive and engaging and deals with directly applicable competencies.  This Executive Workshop helps to uncover the richness of each participant’s own experience, knowledge and skill, by to unleash the creativity and awareness which we all share and which is essential for successful leadership. Leadership is a process that allows us to reveal and appreciate our many gifts and talents, and thereby transform our work in government, business and society. This three-day professional development workshop is designed for those in the public and private sectors, including development partner officials involved in the leadership and development of staff and stakeholders engaged in executive and managerial level positions, through the introduction of analytical frameworks and tools for leadership in the changing global context.  The workshop will address participants’ day-to-day work issues and challenges and provide tools to help them improve their performance back in the workplace.

    to be scheduled
  • Duration:

    3 days
  • Venue:

    Accra, Ghana
  • Price:

    1800 US$
  • Description

    The LEAP workshop  explores the changing face of leadership and the new roles and responsibilities of those involved in leading and managing organisations and staff. The emphasis on an analytical framework approach provides the participant with relevant and effective tools to assess and understand a given organization’s structure and leadership capabilities. Further it looks at models currently recommended by leadership gurus as well as those recently introduced by the various governments, and assesses their appropriateness in the developing country context. Context is given a central emphasis in this workshop since leadership models which ignore a careful consideration of the local context are unlikely to succeed. 

    We take participants from their current competencies to their full potential performance in this highly interactive workshop.   We aim at real managerial competencies, i.e. what will the participants do differently after the intervention.  We involve your direct hierarchy approach as much as possible to identify competency gaps and challenges.  We always adapt to your organizational culture and specific issues, goals and objectives.
