Course Description:

Strategy is not the same as operations and with it the risk context is critical to your planning. Managers should understand that learning styles vary and that the speed of learning, along with delivery, make an impact on success and long-term change. The next valuable question lies ahead, are you in a risk averse or risk tolerant zone?

It is vital for Business Managers to know whether they are working in a risk averse or risk tolerant environment. To be  successful in the 21st century, employees need to be more innovative with diminishing resources and risk context is paramount to your strategy. Employees should be trained to maximise their contributions to the organisation within the risk context. As we all know, change is a constant and we need to be agile to engage all generations in the workforce and place.

This is an interactive workshop where participants will combine theory with experience. Not just theirs but that of their peer group. Participants will look at how to think out of the box and how this influences the way those around them think! They will address real challenges and create solutions to them.

There will also be a short debate on the importance of building the group’s confidence in order to maximise potential and results, focused outcomes that are measurable, valid and reliable and transferable to the organisation.

In Day 1, the course facilitator will begin the process of building a team using Bruce Tuckmans’ Model of Team Building to bond and move forward effectively and efficiently. Participants will then look at strategy and why the risk context is critical to the outcomes. Final session will be working on a draft to take back to the work place, incorporating the workshop key learning points.

In Day 2, the class will develop the cycle of learning and then continue to the importance of thinking styles and how they are designed so as to be measured as well as reliable and valid and what is the risk context involved. Participants will also discuss the value of engaging the employees according to their style of thinking: progressive or defensive in their way of driving business. Planning, methodology and methods will be reviewed as what works for one, does not work for all. Participants will always have preferred styles of leading or managing. However, they need to be able to adapt to the environment and the group that they are working with.
