Why You Should Attend

Strategic Thinking Executive Presence

Tried and tested thinking is unfortunately often translating into tired and tested. Have you ever felt a sense of frustration hearing this same phrase over and over again: “You need to be more strategic”, “Strategically, this does not make sense” and etc. This feedback rarely comes with any guidance or direction as to what needs to be changed. Your current professional experience and business acumen in most cases follow pre-existing models or personal patterns that do not help your growth. Your existing planning and business strategy can be both your strength and your weakness. Some people have an aura of expertise. This engenders trust and support which company directors and clients constantly rely on to make critical business judgments. It could seem that these executives have some magical charm; in fact, they are exhibiting leadership behaviours and executive presence that can be learned, practiced and enhanced. These strategic thinkers anticipate, prepare, and put him/her in the position to continuously exploit future opportunities or avoid threats.

If you want to influence and engage it is paramount that you learn to think creatively around a vision, effectively communicate that vision to others and create a strong executive presence that engages. The art of managing emotions and leading people is taking greater importance in today’s digital era, as is leading diverse teams, engaging in effective dialogues and diffusing conflict within the workplace. Leaders within the workplace need to set the right tone when they walk into a room and capture the attention from the get-go the minute they address an audience. This 2-day training will push the boundaries of what is normally taught in most strategy and leadership trainings. Learn to be different, grab the attention of key investors and stakeholders and leave with a practical and concrete usable plan that will help you grow and create buy-in in personal and business endeavours alike.
