Introduction

We bring to the table those principles we learnt at West Point – self-discipline, commitment to goals larger than us personally,  persistence and a will to win, integrity, how to treat others with respect and dignity, and a passion to lead others such that people can identify with the mission and see a clear relationship between their daily duties and accomplishment of the overall goals.

Our experience in the business world has taught us that these same principles are valuable in leading any organisation. We have demonstrated that leadership is a set of skills that can be taught and further developed through training and practice. This programme cannot, nor can any other, jump from wish to fulfilment without concerted effort and active participation. The participants are the key to any success this programme may provide – they must be involved, committed and willing to take action to implement the concepts presented. The approach and design of all methods employed in our programme are both practical and action-oriented in keeping with our experience and our beliefs about adult learning.

The syllabus is designed based upon the adult learning model. Our facilitators guide participants in the learning experience so that each person learns in their own way and by practicing in the real world, translating theory into usable actions that improve their organisations.
