What You Will Learn

Principles of Building A Flexible Structure

We know that the spine is central to physical well-being. Likewise, a Requisite Enterprise requires you to have a strong spine for organisational and individual effectiveness. A healthy organisational spine is made up of distinctly different themes of work for effective results.

The number of work themes that your organisation requires highly depends on external and internal complexities and the time span of your intent and strategies. No organisation is able to function effectively with missing, confused or incomplete themes. Learn how you can get your spine right to improve clarity of purpose and empower your teams to create conditions for success.

The Critical Aspect About People and Work

The capability to deal with the complexity of work is the lifeblood for a Requisite Enterprise. People need to feel valued and know that the work that they do is meaningful. If people are underutilised or overextended, it can have a significant impact on them and eventually organisational performance.

Human capability is an expression of an individual having the cognitive ability to handle the work complexities of their role, the requisite skilled knowledge and emotional maturity for relationships at work. Employee well-being is critical for performance and that comes with an effective structure, good people management and leadership.

Equipping Your Team With Basic ORGANISATIONAL Leadership Skills

Global research and experiential learning has shown us that there are certain basics that leaders must understand and practise. Understanding these competencies provides a common operating framework for your company, builds trust and a lingua franca for your employees.

The leadership competencies are built on common sense and are practical and relevant from the CEO to the frontline manager. For example, for work to be done, decisions need to be made quickly at the right time and place with the availability of requisite resources. Role design, including cross functional roles and clarity on authority and accountability is critical to achieve this.
