Why Choose this Training Course?

We foster a culture of “Growing Talent from Within” by providing training and development opportunities for our staff to better equip them for the challenges of today and readiness of tomorrow. - Jan Kincaid

The world is changing faster than ever, and so are organizations.  As a result companies need leaders now and in the future who can manage change while executing complex business strategies. To ensure that you have the right leaders in the right places at the right time with the right skill, there needs to be a focus on leadership development. It is absolutely vital, therefore, that organisations need to build a succession planning program that creates leaders faster than the traditional training and development programs and will be able to identify the key business positions within the organization and to develop potential future leaders to occupy them and, consequently, maintain the continuity of business success.


This training course addresses will focus on the need for an integrated approach to leadership development and succession management, one that aligns these efforts with overall business strategies and drives leadership readiness in high potentials across the organization and the best practice approaches to succession planning and leadership.
