Our management training covers a wide variety of commercial and interpersonal skills, but above all, we focus on three key leadership behaviours.
The Future Talent ACT leadership behaviour model
The era of top down, five-year plans is over. Technological advancements have made the innovator’s dilemma a daily conundrum. Agile leaders must work in leaner and smarter ways to overcome organisational inertia and discover what works (and doesn’t) as quickly as possible in order to continuously deliver exceptional new products and services.
“No plan survives first contact with the enemy.” Helmuth von Moltke
A romantic ideal exists of the lone-wolf entrepreneur sitting in their garage, encumbered by nothing but their genius. Sadly, it’s just a myth.
Collaborative leaders embrace a diversity of perspectives. 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.
“None of us is as smart as all of us.” Kenneth H. Blanchard
Organisations that don’t change don’t last. And organisations that don’t learn, don’t change. Transformative leaders are committed to continually learning in order to shape change - rather than

“Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity rather than a threat.” Various
Why is the ACT leadership behaviour model important?
Technology is disrupting the world of work. But technical skills alone aren’t enough to achieve the near Herculean task of organisational transformation. That requires the right mindset. And a sophisticated set of soft skills.
Our online management courses help graduates and managers to become more agile, collaborative and transformative. They will gain the ability to work in more agile ways, the people skills to collaborate effectively and the mindset to see organisational transformation as an opportunity and not a threat. After all, we learn (and lead) best not by merely reflecting, but by doing – by acting.
