About the Executive development Programme

“Top Performers Don’t Always Make Great Leaders”

Being a top performer doesn’t guarantee great leadership. Excelling in your role doesn’t automatically translate to leadership success. To become a great leader, you must develop a distinct set of skills and knowledge essential for success in leadership. Research indicates that around 80% of newly promoted young executives/managers struggle within the first 18 months in their new leadership roles due to lack of preparation.

Therefore, the primary goal of this 10-day Executive Development Program is to equip young staff members with the skills and mindset needed to excel in executive positions and become future leaders.

“Research from the Corporate Executive Board (CEB) estimates that 50% to 70% of executives fail within 18 months of taking on a role, regardless of whether they were an external hire or promoted from within.”
