Initiate Strategy in Action

Resilient Futures' unique leadership professional development pathway, Initiate Strategy in Action is designed to help organisations strategically leverage disruption.  The pathway sets the foundation for embedding strategic thinking and action at all levels of an organisation — from board and executive management, to frontline staff.

Initiate Strategy in Action offers three programs which create distinct entry points for a grow as you go approach for organisations seeking to:

    1. Identify potential disruptors beyond those that are already known.
    2. Cascade and align strategic leadership as an active state of mind and management.
    3. Generate sustainable value through leveraging disruption.

The programs within the professional development pathway focus on activating strategic leadership at all levels of an organisation and are ideal for board members, executive managers, other leaders and managers as well as frontline staff who are experiencing or likely to experience the disruptive impacts of exponential change.

These programs can be combined to form a comprehensive strategic leadership development program and can also be customised to meet specific client needs. All programs can be delivered face-to-face or online based on client requirements.

A brief outline of each program is provided below and the full professional development program can be downloaded here.
