According to a recent study by Silega™, 70% of organisations fail to achieve their annual objectives. Even the best-laid plans fail without proper
alignment, change in culture, capable leaders, ongoing performance feedback and proper resource usage.

Silega Expedition™ is a one-day business simulation program that places participants in a challenging and inspiring experience of climbing Mount Everest in order to win a prize. Everest has always been the supreme symbol of man’s personal struggle to achieve excellence, no matter the conditions. Succeeding on Everest depends totally on spirit, discipline, and will. And as in real life there are only two possible results: success or failure. Participants work and compete in teams of 5 or 6 people.

The main objectives of this program are to:
  • Inspire and mobilize leaders to achieve outstanding results in tough times;
  • Improve the leaders’ business planning and strategic planning skills;
  • Sensitize the participants to use all available resources in the best possible way; and
  • Identify and discuss the kind of leadership required to survive and thrive in tough business conditions
This simulation helps leadership teams unearth challenges in the following areas:
  • Planning and Priority Setting;
  • Managing Vision and Purpose;
  • Strategic Agility;
  • Decision Making;
  • Managing and Measuring Productivity;
  • Time Management; and
  • Motivating Others

Often time’s managers find themselves thrust into the role of management simply because they happened to be good at their technical skills or known area of expertise. Upon promotion they then find that they have to grapple with the issue of managing and inspiring others – if they are to achieve results. They can no longer work as lone rangers, and the attitudes and attributes that got them to where there are, are no longer adequate for success in their new role.

Without effective up-skilling, a star performer can begin to struggle and easily move from being a star performer to a low-key performer, as a result of the new portfolio.

Our programme is designed to equip and empower new managers to excel at their new roles, and to help participants to:

  • Understand and transition into the role of a manager
  • Explore different leadership styles as well as assess their own style, and understand the impact that different style have on teams
  • Learn how to leverage performance from those they manage
  • Explore workplace diversity and how possible conflict can be mitigated and managed

Who should attend?

  • Newly appointed team leaders and managers
  • Experienced supervisors who may not have had formal management training.

“Your success in life isn’t based on your ability to simply change. It is based on your ability to change faster than your competition, customers and business.” Mark Sanborn

When you think of change, what comes to mind? For some people, when they think of change, they think of: redundancies, extra workload, confusing emotions, etc…. The global environment has become extremely dynamic.

Change is bound to present unlimited opportunities and challenges depending on one’s outlook to the change. Individuals and organizations that anticipate and respond to change effectively and rapidly, will be better placed to compete in their markets than their competitors.

Change is inevitable in our personal as well as professional lives. What matters is how the change is managed; right from the onset – in terms of reaction and commitment – to the overall sustainability of the process. Managing change is a learnable skill, and with some practice and training, we shall equip you and your change management staff to make the most and the best of organizational change.

The Change Management Programme is designed to equip:

  • Leaders with tools to encourage buy-in and easier implementation of change by all stakeholders;
  • Participants with an understanding of how change is implemented and equip them with practical tools to make change initiatives successful.

Who should attend?
Project team members involved in any change management initiative within their organizations.

This programme is specifically conducted on an in-house basis.
