Strategic Leaders Program - Asia

As a senior leader, your effectiveness is measured by the performance of the leaders you manage.

Therefore, the ability to align and motivate your team to drive business results is crucial to your success. The Strategic Leaders Program, through The Competing Values Framework, will challenge you to adopt new research-backed ways of thinking that will increase your impact as a leader.

For over 30 years The Competing Values Framework has been used by the world’s most well-known companies to drive innovation, create high-performance cultures, explore and expand into new markets, and improve overall quality.

This program explores the critical components of effective management and leadership. You’ll learn to make better decisions under pressure, improve your leadership approach in increasingly complex environments, develop talent more effectively and lead with more creativity, energy, and intensity. Cultivating and leveraging individual and organizational capabilities will be emphasized throughout the program. You'll emerge with an action plan to help you advance your career and drive positive results in your organization.
