Executive MINDSET: 23rd November

Most suitable for CEOs and senior managers, this one day Masterclass takes you on a journey of understanding your own entrepreneurial and leadership mindset. This course is built on the premise that human behaviour is driven by passion. However, our ability to absorb and utilise information is limited as our Mindset filters knowledge based on our education, culture, experience and skills. Outputs will include:

·         Develop the traits of an entrepreneurial manager

·         Develop a more authentic leadership mindset in order to lead in challenging times

·         Explore the evolution of high-performance teams and team profiles in order to drive more   positive interactions

·         Understand the power of storytelling and why it’s increasingly seen as a key leadership skill.

This is an immersive deep-dive into the theory and practice of developing a more authentic leadership mindset, entrepreneurial traits of great managers, motivating high-performance teams and having greater impact through communication.  Through understanding and learning about how we lead, our style and philosophy, we can help change and implement our company’s strategy, the behaviour of colleagues and teams. It costs €750 and includes light lunch, snacks and refreshments throughout the course.
