Programme Themes

The Explorer Mindset programme will focus on

three key leadership themes:

1) Personal leadership development

2) Team dynamics and performance

3) Organisational innovation and growth

The Explorer Mindset programme is framed around the five dominant forces re-shaping our world:

  • 1. Globalisation implications
  • 2. Socially created information
  • 3. Nationalism’s resurgence
  • 4. Digital technologies
  • 5. Millennial demographics

The Explorer Mindset programme is designed to equip you with the cognitive, emotional and behavioural resources to confidently lead your organisation at this critical point in history.

Unfortunately, too many executives underestimate the risk of their leadership capabilities not keeping pace with these seismic shifts, a 2017 report by Deloitte found*.

Its survey of 800 global business executives found 90% are redesigning their organisations to be more dynamic and agile, yet they underestimate the crucial demand for "a completely different type of leader ".
