Prepare yourself for new frontiers in Leadership

This senior leadership development programme is designed for the C-suite, partners, founders and other senior managers (with 8+ years management experience), and is sector-agnostic.

About the program

We have developed the Explorer Mindset, a unique senior leadership development program, to equip senior executives with the cognitive, emotional and behavioural resources required to confidently lead their organisations through one of the most competitive and unpredictable environments for centuries.

The Need for an Explorer’s Mindset

The gap between available technology and human ability to use that technology for creating a better world has never been greater.

The gap between a networked, interconnected world and the growing forces of nationalism and protectionism has never been wider.

Advanced robotics and ‘smart factories’ combining automation and artificial intelligence are poised to re-shape manufacturing.

The ‘gig economy’ and rise of flexible and remote working is already redrawing concepts of work and workplaces.

Millennials demand transparency and authenticity in leadership.

Organisations increasingly experience socio-economic and cyber risks, intense global competition and high-speed change.
