Leadership Apprenticeship Programmes from Future Talent Group operate in line with the ACT leadership behaviour model.
Agile leaders work in leaner and smarter ways to overcome organisational inertia. They quickly discover what works (and doesn’t) in order to continuously deliver exceptional new products and services.
Collaborative leaders embrace diversity. They make sure everyone feels they belong and understand where the business is heading. They make the whole far greater than the sum of its parts.
Organisations that don’t change don’t last. Organisations that don’t learn don’t change. Transformational leaders learn continually in order to shape change, not just respond to it.
