Executive Diploma: Leading With Motivational Intelligence

There is one fundamental truth that applies to every organisation's ability to adapt to changing market dynamics.  Businesses transform at the rate they can get their employees to embrace change.  Getting people to let go of long-held ways of doing things, moving them outside of comfort zones and gaining employee buy-in to new ideas and approaches is the single greatest impediment to organisational transformation and transition.
Neuroscientists have now discovered the reason people resist change and cling to the legacy ways they approach their role.  They have also found an effective approach for removing this resistance and fostering greater employee accountability, adaptability, and resilience.  The answer was uncovered in the emerging field of Motivational Intelligence (MQ).

Thank you very much for all the leadership insight you provided last week. Even in this short time, I have noticed a dramatic change in how I look at and address certain situations and adapt to change more easily. Going into last week, I was not really sure what to expect, but I can tell you I didn’t think I would be provided with so many lessons to better myself as a leader inside and outside of the workplace. Yet that is exactly what happened. Once again, I cannot thank you enough. It was a joy to be part of this course.
