THE FUTURE IS NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE
Though the most important competitive and growth factor is the development of key people, organisations continue to struggle to meet the challenges increasingly demanded within their industries. This is despite development initiatives and operational restructuring to build commitment, improve communication and generate creativity in action.
Clearly, entrepreneurial ideas have a greater certainty of being profitable and sustainable when supported by management attributes – though such attributes are often lacking in many organisations. What is not so understood is that executives must develop entrepreneurial thinking - the same inspirational leadership skills instrumental for the founding and successful growth of their business.
This balance of attributes is essential today for re-energising and developing existing valuable talent, maximising value opportunities, growing revenue and ensuring excellent execution of strategies and clear communication of objectives through entrepreneurial leadership. Organisations today must steer their companies to becoming creative with inspiring entrepreneurial leaders, while maintaining effective managerial structures populated with committed personnel.

• Address individual and organizational perceptions towards the future
• Explain the Principles of Entrepreneurial Leadership
• How to use The One Percent Solution to generate innovation and opportunities
