“Leadership, like swimming, cannot be learned by reading about it” – Henry Mintzberg
However, leadership CAN be learned and mastered through our program. The MSB Max program is designed specifically and uniquely to emphasize not only knowledge but practical application and mastery of the skills involved in being a Leader.
Leadership Skill Development
Why is Leadership so important?
Success in modern business depends on people, and in order to achieve success, people look to leaders for direction. What we need in all walks of life and all endeavors is leadership. Leadership is the catalyst which makes everything else work flawlessly, without leadership all other business resources are ineffective! Effective leadership is important because it creates confidence among the participants in an organization and encourages a professional and positive environment. It is from this foundation that all other success is possible.
The world has changed; modern leadership is an essential skill-set organisations’ require within their ranks at all levels to be able to thrive in the new era. We have moved from an Industrial economy (age) and entered the human Innovation and Information economy (age). Old leadership models based on authority, dominance, power, Command & Control no longer work.
Simple, these old methods do not promote and sustain innovation or motivate and inspire your people! Yet this redundant approach and an imbalanced emphasis on management skills over leadership skills is still the accepted standard within most organisations.
How many times have we heard management proclaim, “Our greatest asset is our employees”? In 2015 a national survey found that 73 percent claim employees were their company’s greatest assets. This same survey found that 98 percent of executives agreed that improving employee performance would significantly increase company productivity. But when asked to rank business priorities, these same executives relegated investing in people to fifth place on a six-item list. Time has changed and to be successful you have to change – the new age requires LEADERS! You invest in them – We develop them – for You.
This program is designed to develop tangible, usable Leadership skills relevant to your specific current and future needs!
