Increasingly leaders face pressure to facilitate their organisations through continuous change. Transforming and up-dating management styles is critical to building an organisation capable of operating and innovating in a contemporary environment. This scenario explores current organisational trends and resultant challenges to leadership. Through forum theatre we follow a day in the life of two leaders working in a large organisation, exploring the behavioural competencies required to enable good leadership fit for the future.
We identify some of the typical challenges faced by leaders in any organisation and explore the key aptitudes, competencies and behaviours required to manage and lead effectively. Topics covered include the need for flexibility, leading through influence not hierarchy, enabling autonomy or collaboration and catering for individualisation of the work-force.
