  • Program Overview

    Wherever your organization is on the spectrum of the digital journey, leaders need to realign the Mindset as well as develop behavioral competencies to navigate smoothly through the whole ecosystem of this Digital Era. The advent of COVID-19 has served as a black swan event for many leaders who were not used to another challenging aspect of the digital era i.e. leading others in a virtual environment. This 5-hour online training will help in equipping mid to senior management leaders to effectively lead their teams and to make their organisations thrive in a digital world while effectively dealing with the challenges of leading in a virtual situation, uncertainty and the disruption-based change that is pervasive today and is here to stay.

    The program focuses on creating awareness on the new ways of connecting, communicating, and collaborating by understanding the associated elements of Leadership Behaviors in the digital era.

    In order to achieve the above learning agenda, during the first half (2.5 hours), the focus will be on enabling the participants on how to influence others using a cognitive mental mapping model around a specific situation to determine the leadership needs of the situation, accounting for the performance levels of individuals. During the second half, the program uses a three-pronged cognitive framework of DIGITAL ACUMEN, DIGITAL ADAPTABILITY, DIGITAL AGILITY to promote self-discovery and awareness around this behavioral framework for leaders to be more effective and become what we call a Digital Leader.
