Building a Drive Centric Organisation


The general objective of this 2-day workshop is to provide a detailed conceptual framework and specifics of HOW to design and implement an effective portfolio of behavioral and environmental stimuli that will lead to inspire and ignite collectively a new set of productive attitudes.

Five modules will be covered within a 2-day session, with a 2 hour follow up session to take place approximately 90 days after the training session has been held.

Target Audience

This workshop is targeted to persons who are responsible for leading and directing teams, which includes: Senior Managers, Executives, Team Leaders, and Human Resource Managers.  

Learning Objectives

Learning objectives of this 2-day workshop include:

  • To provide the participant with concepts of reference to advance and complement their understanding of the most relevant aspects of the dynamics of formal organisations. As well, participants will identify the role of critical dimensions of the formal organisation in shaping the collaborative and innovative processes and desired behavioral patterns.
  • To provide participants with the applicable tools to identify how informal organisations emerge, develop and change, and their impact in the overall dynamics of critical management processes and patterns.
  • To identify and be able to avoid or neutralise the normal decision making traps that top managers have, and reflect on the implication for organisational strategy.
  • To identify and understand the collective behavior that foster organisational efficiency, learning, innovation, and collaboration. These behaviors are critical in the execution of building a drive centric organisation.
  • To integrate all the concepts into applicable actions with direct effects on developing patterns and processes of innovation and advanced collaboration.
