What does the workforce of the future look like?  How can we engage with young people at work so they can deliver their best performance?  What do we need to ensure is in place to support succession planning as we consider the needs of the business moving forward.

You are exploring the concept of what leadership means to you and your organisation and want to learn more about leading edge thinking about leadership for the future.  Through the sessions we will challenge some traditional views of the role of leader and will consider the implications to organisations.

As we move out of recession many organisations are refocusing their strategies around growth.  The natural resultant question is how do we get from here to there?  And importantly do we have the leadership capability to make the transition?  These sessions will help you to explore these leadership challenges, regardless of the size or sector of your organisation.
