To drive organisational growth and deliver excellent results, leaders need to be empowered with requisite skills for the development of relevant, essential and actionable frameworks leading to operational efficiency.

This was the view of stakeholders at Texem, while unveiling a capacity building programme titled ‘Developing and leading high-performance organisations for superlative results’, scheduled to hold in Lagos, next week, July 18th -19th.

In a statement made available to The Guardian, organisers of the event explained that the programme will cover themes bordering on building and nurturing organisational culture for success; positioning companies for future success by developing growth strategy and honing long-term strategy; the role of the leader in driving successful change and stimulating innovation; developing and disseminating the organisational vision and inspiring focus in turbulent times; and CSR as a source of generating a competitive edge and sustaining it.

Explaining the rationale behind the programme and the need for participants to attend, Professor Rodria Laline, a visiting Professor of Harvard, Insead and IESE and Chair of Intrabond Capital, said: “Participants are assured of geometric return of investment via enhanced social capital through networking with other impressive leaders and future partners – both during the executive development programme and after.

“Furthermore, leaders will have the opportunity to challenge and debate with the faculties who have a wealth of applicable theoretical and practical leadership experience-For example, at the risk of being accused of being self-asserting, permit me to say that I have delivered executive development programmes in almost every continent in the world and for participants from over eighty countries through my work at Harvard, Insead, IMD and IESE.

“I have practical senior executive and board-level experience and I have advised many boards across Europe, America, Asia, and Africa. Specifically, upon completion of this programme you will be more self-aware and equipped with critical and relevant strategies on how to propel your leadership trajectory for improved capacity to inspire your organisation to deliver results in a resource-constrained operating landscape.

“Other vital takeaways include actionable learning outcomes such as improved leadership quotient on how to bridge differences and explore synergies more effectively, via case studies translate leadership concepts into action, and being more adept at articulating goals to increase individual, organisational as well as industry influence and impact”.Some participants that attended the programme in the past acknowledged the benefits from the programme.

According to Karen Daniel, a Procurement Director at Nigeria Breweries (Heineken), “I think the biggest take away for me from the programme is that sometimes the obvious objective isn’t really the intended outcome. I think it was quite insightful for me compared to all other trainings that I have attended. The facilitators are very knowledgeable. I think they have done a good job in selecting of the facilitators”.

To the CEO Communication Network Support Service Limited, Gbenga Adebayo, he said: “I have enjoyed the training particularly areas taking about how to turn around business in a recession. It’s been educative, informative and also interactive. I recommend this programme to any executive who wants to turn around his business in time of crisis. And anyone who wants to meet people of timber and calibre should participate in Texem programmes”.
