NZLI Executive Leadership Programme
CEOs and senior executives in today's rapidly changing business environments need to redefine and develop different leadership mindsets and practices to lead successful and sustainable organisations.
Why redefine executive leadership?
Dramatically changing contexts are volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous; organisations are increasingly vulnerable to failure.
Many common beliefs about leadership are based on flawed assumptions, sweeping generalisations, and intuitively appealing but dangerous concepts.
And, 6 out of 10 organisations cannot effectively implement strategic priorities.
Executives from New Zealand's diverse private and public sectors will come together in this programme to:
- Challenge and reframe their perceptions about executive leadership
- Elevate their conception of responsibility, accountability and power
- Expand their capacity to rapidly enhance organisational performance
- Engage in context based learning and undertake a simulated leadership change experience
- Integrate and apply new leadership thinking and practices over a sustained period while maintaining their critical responsibilities
Leaders best suited to participate in this programme are CEOs/Managing Directors of SMEs, newly appointed CEOs, C-Suite executives, General Managers and Principal Advisors.
