Astute Leader

Never in our lifetime has there been a greater need for outstanding leaders with societal impact. Before the outbreak of Covid-19, leaders across the globe were fixated on the disruption that was rolling out with the 4th Industrial Revolution. Little did we know how quickly those changes would seem tame, in light of this black swan event and the wicked problems it would exacerbate.

In the last year or so, several lists have emerged of 21st Century Leadership skills necessary to navigate increasing complexities, changes and conflicts, but research is indicating that most leaders do not possess these skills and they tend not to be taught in management development programmes. We have consolidated more than 50 skills identified in those lists into 4 critical leader competencies, and designed a system to develop them.


This system is based on the Astute Leader Foundational Skills Programme, which is crafted to enable deeply personalised, practical and progressive development for leaders who wish to equip themselves to be powerfully effective in the next decade. The modular programme is highly flexible, participative and experiential – even when conducted online!
