What is Market Immersion Experience?
Effective leaders understand the importance of fresh, creative thinking in addressing their most persistent organisational challenges. Yet, one of the ironies of experience and success is that it frequently blinds us from seeing situations in new and different ways. Leaders who are able to see things from different angles and rise above limiting assumptions are the ones who drive change, innovation, and leap ahead of the competition.
“Outside – in” learning offers a key to accomplishing this. Leaders who routinely look for insights in less typical places are better able to shape their judgment and thinking. They become more agile learners.
The Market Immersion Experience is intended to help participants develop an outside-in orientation by helping them:
- Directly experience the market to gain insights on key leadership issues facing the organisations visited
- Look with a fresh set of eyes and challenge deeply entrenched assumptions held within their organisations
- Reflect on and capture personal and team learning as a result of the experience of being in the market
- Promote a practice of “outside – in” learning mindset as a regular leadership practice
What is Leadership by Giving?
Leadership by Giving is more than just about providing a financial contribution. It is about interacting and learning from those less fortunate than us True leaders realise that leadership is more about giving rather than taking or matching. Those who lead for personal gain run out of energy when the going gets tough, but those who lead to give, are energised when faced with unsurmountable odds because they have discovered the rewards of giving.
