Supporting material
A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

This course will create a thinking step-change for delegates inspired by exploring the profound changes emerging in the 4th industrial revolution.

You'll experience and explore tools and techniques which will enable you to not only survive, but thrive under the increasing pressures exerted in the digital workplace. You will walk-away with a kitbag of tools and behavioural approaches which will enable you and your team to manage and bounce-back from the challenges you’ll encounter every day.

We'll focus on empowering you to build a new vision and strategy for their organisation utilising the Three Horizons model developed by the Futures Forum. Here shareholder returns were shown to be markedly improved in companies who looked 5 years out and beyond in their planning cycles (85% vs 47%). The Three Horizons approach will enable delegates to stimulate visions and strategies born out of the future (‘future-back thinking’). Where appropriate, brand essence and positioning or organisational values and culture focuses can also be adopted in the session.

The course is facilitated by experts in strategy, visioning and behavioural change who have extensive experience as c-suite leaders in business. They will draw on leading-edge research and the latest behavioural science to provide a highly experiential course that will inspire profound leadership development.

Our Visionary Thinking in the Digital Age course is offered as a private training session and can be delivered at our own training venues in the Rosebank Link, Johannesburg or Umhlanga, or any location of your choice.
