Welcome to the Virtual Leadership Academy. Well done on taking the next step in your journey to be a better leader.
“The job of managing is getting harder. The challenges of 21st century leadership and management include working in an environment of constant change and the increasing complexity of organisational structures. Managers must also deal with a tough economic climate and growing international competition. New technologies, the knowledge economy and the rise of social media, greater transparency, rising consumer demands and environmental resource concerns all add to a potent and complex mix of challenges that managers must negotiate to be successful.
The ways in which an organisation meets these challenges can mean the difference between business success and failure. Successive studies have shown that getting the right mix of inspirational leadership and effective management skills and practices can have a significant impact on organisational performance in terms of profit, sales, growth and survival”.
My vision at the VLA is to provide the platform through which individuals can develop their understanding of leadership and leadership practices.
I look forward to seeing you progress and hearing about your successes.
