Applying the Blue Ocean Strategy Approach to Strategic Thinking
The course targets CEOs, Board Members, Directors and Managers of all sorts of organizations.
Red Ocean Strategy metaphorically represents the common place scenario where competitors are fiercely fighting for a market share of the existing “small” market. The bleeding begotten of fierce competition turns the ocean red. Blue Ocean Strategy on the other hand, avoids the necessity to fight by making competition irrelevant. In this training, participants will learn how to discover, explore, create and profit from untapped markets, thereby establishing a blue ocean territory around them. It’s about becoming an industry leader and game changer rather than playing the game following the limiting rules set by existing competitors. Any organization can do it. This training teaches you how!

In these fast-changing times, innovation has become the ultimate source of competitive advantage. Organizations that do not take creativity and continuous innovation seriously risk dying out slowly and silently, but surely. Continuous innovation is the one factor that distinguishes those that complain of a saturated market from those that see exclusive streams of untapped opportunities for growth. But does your organization have established mechanisms to deal with creativity and innovations management as a key aspect of organizational culture? 
This executive training seeks to help you answer the question: How do you establish an institutional system to inspire and coordinate individual creativity into team creativity, leading to sustainable innovations? The course is designed to develop business leaders and managers into change agents with the right mental models, skills and tools required to transform their organizations into havens of innovation. We also explore why a designated officer for Creativity and Corporate Innovations is now a must-have for strategically-wired organizations.
 
Systems Thinking and Change Management
The course targets CEOs, and other corporate leaders and managers at all levels in organizations. 
One of the reasons why important change initiatives fail is because certain key aspects of the organization get ignored. 
Systems thinking is fundamental to managing change in organizations. Systems thinking offers us tools for seeing the whole organization as a complex constitution of various components and understanding the relationships between those elements. Moreover, systems thinking can also take us beyond merely understanding relationships to creating new relationships that yield the real desired change. 
This training will equip participants with tools and methods for understanding why things happen the way they happen in organizations. It is designed to unlock and unleash your ability to make decisions, design business changes and predict their results. It is an essential training for those seeking to plan and implement successful change initiatives in their organizations.

Emotional Intelligence for Managers
For CEOs, and other corporate leaders and managers at all levels in organizations. 
 
Why do people behave the way they behave? How can I behave as a leader so as to influence them to behave out of personal conviction in a way that produces the optimal results for the organization? These are the questions that this course helps participants to answer.
Emotional intelligence is about the mastery of one’s emotions and the ability to empathize. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage one's own feelings, and how these emotions can influence the motivation and behavior of others. Emotional intelligence gives managers the inner tools to use to elevate their own performance and that of their people. 
Low Emotional Intelligence breeds many negative emotions like fear, anger, hostility, and irrational resistance to positive change. These use up a lot of energy; they lead to lower morale, absenteeism and apathy; and they are an effective block to collaborative effort. Through closing the gap between the heart and the mind, emotional intelligence equips staff to handle the ever-increasing pressures of a modern workplace. 
The training is essential for catalyzing the peak performance of leaders and managers.
 
Strategic Management in Practice

Building Talent Management Systems at the Workplace
This course is especially designed for HR Managers, CEOs Senior Managers and Mid-Managers.
 
The greatest wealth of any organization is the talent portfolio of its people. Ironically, most organizations do not have deliberately developed systems for optimally tapping those talents. As a result, the people factor – greatest source of wealth - remains severely underutilized. 
In this training participants will learn how to;
  • Provide the environment for talent manifestation and nurturing
  • Develop a dynamic corporate talent portfolio
  • Establish an effective talent management system with in-built reward and recognition mechanisms.
 
Transforming Organizational Culture for the 21st Century
This course targets CEOs, HR Managers, Board Members, Directors, other corporate leaders and OD consultants.
 
Organizational culture is the fundamental determinant of the results and status of any establishment. Many organizations spend a lot of resources on unsuccessful change processes because their culture remains mal-aligned with the 21st Century environment. 
This training is specially designed for corporate leaders who want to embark on transforming their organizational culture. It explores how to redesign systems and work processes that enable the transformation and alignment of people’s perceptions, belief systems, aspirations, value systems and behavior towards the desired results.
 
Appreciative Inquiry Skills for Corporate Strategists: Tools and Techniques
The course targets CEOs, Board Members and Managers of all sorts of organizations.
 
Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is a radical departure from the conventional strategic planning approaches which are characterized by unrealistic idealism or deficit-based thinking (fixing the problem) and result into strategic plans that don’t work. Instead, AI empowers corporate strategists with tools and techniques for envisioning and creating the desired future with greater certainty. 
If you are looking for a proven method that will align all the strengths of your organization to create the results you want, this is the training you need the most.
     
 
Managing Social Media for Public Relations and Marketing
The course targets Sales and Marketing Managers, PROs, Small Business Owners and Civil Society Activists.
 
Due to the fast-growing coverage of modern ICTs, social media has become a very effective platform for visibility. It’s quick, cheaper, sometimes free, and effective. And it’s no longer a preserve of the young. But in most organizations it is abused and underused. They have not yet learnt how to systematically take advantage of social media as a mainstream visibility and PR platform. 
In this training, social media experts will explore the wide and deep ocean of social media, much of which is little known to many. Participants will be taken through step-by-step details on how to develop a social media policy and strategy for boosting the marketing and PR profile of their organizations.
 
Managing Workplace Learning and Staff Development
This course is especially designed for HR Managers, CEOs Senior Managers and Mid-Managers.
 
In order to stay relevant and highly competitive in the 21st century environment, institutions must become learning organizations. This entails developing a strong culture for continuous learning at both institutional and personal levels.

In this course, participants will learn how:
  • To develop a cultural environment that supports continuous learning at institutional level.

  • To establish and manage effective staff development policies and practices that ensure value for time and money.
 
Team Building and Supervisory Leadership

It focuses on helping participants to supplement their already proven managerial and supervisory abilities with advanced capabilities to inspire and rally staff along a strong sense of common purpose and synergy.
