MBA in a Day
Fri. 21 April 2017, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm British Summer Time United Kingdom Time
In any week, leaders are expected to lead teams, manage budgets, strategise, thrill their clients and keep their own mojo meters high. The MBA in a day short course equips leaders with a wide range of relevant and practical skills that help them thrive in their roles, rather than merely survive. Participants will engage with a range of skills that they would expect to cover in a regular Masters of Business Administration, but enjoy the way in which the EC team makes these concepts highly relevant. A great course to re-inspire an established leader, or prepare an emerging leader, the MBA in a Day is an intense and fun day, high on take home points.
10am to 11:15 Morning Session - Leading Self
We begin the day by allowing participants to engage in introspection on their self-leadership, knowing that this is the foundation for successfully leading others. We focus on the key behaviours and positive habits that enable leaders to perform at their peak and sustain their efficacy at both personal and professional levels. Sharing the powerful practices and working from a strength basis, we look at how leaders can ensure their wellbeing is high as they continue their challenging work leading others.
11:30 - 1:00 Mid-Morning Session - Leading Others
This session enables participants to focus on the most powerful strategies for engaging members of their staff, including a range of tools and tactics for getting around difficult staff - the blockers. We dive into the tangible actions that can enable leaders to lead more effectively by building ownership, motivation and expertise. Participants reflect on how to keep their team happy and engaged as they contribute to the vision of the organisation.
1:30 - 2:45 Afternoon Session - Leading Organisations
The final session takes the strategies from the first two sessions and determines next steps. We share the power of aligning work to cultural pillars to help create more powerful workplace cultures.
