What are Harmonised World Business Learning Programmes?

The business and organisational landscape is constantly changing. Every day presents a new issue or an opportunity. Everywhere organisations are experiencing the effects. Overwhelm. Uncertainty. Fatigue. Rapid changes may be straining existing systems and your people. The pace of change is greater. There is more data to process than ever before. Staying competitive presents more and more challenges. Crisis’s can be triggered through changes beyond your control.  Even top performers may be feeling under-resourced and overwhelmed by the avalanche of information, email, and outstanding action items.

Deciding what to focus on, and what to do when, has never been more critical – for you, your team, and your entire organisation. The largest barrier to any business or organisation is the leader’s skillset and psychology.

Organisational culture is shaped by its leadership.  Leading a start-up or a multinational corporation requires those at the top of the organisation to be the most effective in their abilities.  Every day crucial decisions are made that directly affect the overall financial performance of the organisation. You want results, your team want leadership. Our Business Learning Programmes enable executives to use their natural talent to adapt and execute efficiently.

Aimed at public and private individuals, CEO executives, business owners, managers, and those wanting an effective, valuable, and enriched life.

No matter how well articulated or researched, strategy is only as good as its implementation.  In many organisations there is a significant challenge for most leadership teams, and quite often failure to translate business strategy into operational reality.  In today’s continually changing environment while increasing efficiencies, business and organisations, more often than they have had to in the past, will have to retool, reassess, reposition themselves, and most importantly achieve true behavioural change each time from their team.

Your team are critical to the organisations success.  They are challenged with ever increasing responsibility and accountability for financial, strategic and operational decisions. They must possess the confidence and business acumen to make decisions that build shareholder and stakeholder value supporting the organisations overall strategic objectives.

Your team require business acumen to the fundamentals of how your organisation works, how your company makes money.  The team requires understanding of the overall big picture of the business and its interrelationships.  If they are not clear on what drives efficiency, profitability, and cash flow, the results will be limited.

We create and deliver high-impact experiential learning initiatives that drive alignment, mindset change, building execution capability around strategic and tactical priorities. Most of our clients have a wealth of professional experience, but have received little or no formal management training, undermining their confidence in their own leadership abilities. Many Clients have businesses that they consider reasonably successful and secure, but they have a feeling of suppressed ambition, and are searching for inspiration.

Are you and your team properly equipped with the skills, knowledge and ethical understanding you need to perform at the highest level?

Running your business on gut-feeling and personal attachment can never be objective. Clients turn to Harmonised World Business Learning Programmes to create and maintain progress in one or more of the following areas of their business or organisation…

  • Leadership Development & Management
  • Brand Strategy & Positioning
  • Team & Company Culture
  • Products & Services Innovation
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Operations & Processes
  • Relationship Advancement

Most courses and programmes teach a great amount, however there is little learning. When combining action, learning and support, when we are asking or being asked insightful questions through regular, consistent contact leads to progress on problems that are not being resolved. We can use your unique brand values and culture to create a custom Development Programme.

Examples of the symptoms of problems in areas of business and organisations…

Businesses can maintain alignment and ensure simplicity for customers when a company is small. However, once alignment is lost in a growing company, gaining it back requires experienced management and a control system that protects and enhances the business or organisation’s core value proposition. Every business or organisation that is in operation will have problems in their journey. What solutions are implemented, and how fast they are implemented can have severe operational and financial effects.

Lack of Inspiration, Ineffective Policies, Managerial Ineffectiveness
“There are too many meetings with too many people with too few constructive outcomes.”
“We’re stuck in analysis paralysis in a culture of risk aversion and fear of failure.”
“Decisions take too long. Our policies and processes are getting in the way of getting the job done.”
Poor Strategy and Implementation, Lack of Clear Value Proposition
“We continually miss our quarterly goals.”
“Our strategy doesn’t make sense.”
Lack of Talent, Lack of Trust, Work Overloading, Resource Squabbles
“The work keeps piling up. We don’t know why we’re doing this work, nor what good it’s doing.”
“There is too much politics. Unmet expectations have made us suspicious or resentful of each other.”
“We feel …unsafe, not respected, over or under supervised, directionless, unsure who really is my boss.”
Lack of Innovation, Lack of Inspiration, Too much fire fighting
“There is a lack of innovation and creativity in our organization. Opportunities to improve productivity are lost. We seem hidebound.”
Ineffective Systems, Poor Implementation of Sales Strategy, Production/Stock Not Available
“The projects and initiatives we launch come in late and/or over estimated resources.”
‘We are always chasing targets but we never reach them’
‘The rest of the company don’t have to deal with customers who keep getting let down’
Unproductive Meetings, Lack of Decision Making, Resource Squabbles
“We have to fight for the support we need from other departments.”
‘There is no communication from the top, we could do this so much better’
‘Our systems and procedures are stopping us from growing’
High customer churn, Little long term relationships
“We keep having to get new customers because we cant look after the old ones properly”
“We have never met all of our stakeholders, we only need to look after our customers”

Where training attempts to standardise by blending to a norm and adapting to the status quo, development strives to call out the unique and differentiate by shattering the status quo. Training is something leaders dread and will try and avoid, whereas they will embrace and look forward to development. Development is contextual, collaborative, fluid, and above all else, actionable.

Are you managing a business, organisation, or team of less than 249 people? You are not alone. Many have been through the same problems you may be facing.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for over 95% of all enterprises in OECD countries, making crucial contributions to job creation and income generation; they account for two-thirds of all jobs worldwide.  There is hardly any item or activity in our life that is not affected or influenced by business or organisations.  It is estimated that there are 420 to 510 million SMEs worldwide, of which 9 per cent are formal SMEs (excluding micro-enterprises) and 80–95 per cent are in low- and middle income countries.  In the majority of businesses the owner manager typically is the business and the business reflects the owner manager.  That means the largest barrier in any business or organisation is the leader’s skillset and psychology.

95%

Does your business or organisation have unique value, and is it what it is built on?  By its very nature, growth brings about significant change. The systems, processes, procedures, staffing, financing and other factors that helped your company grow to 10 employees won’t work when you have 50. And what worked for a 50-employee company won’t work when it grows to 100 employees. Nearly all aspects of your business must evolve or be reinvented along the way, from restructuring your leadership team to developing your staff to accommodate significant change.

Business may have compelling reasons to change in order to…

  • Increase market share
  • Develop new products and services
  • Sustain better margins and volume
  • Achieve faster time to market
  • Deliver in shorter lead times
  • Operate more efficiently
  • Make better use of human capital
  • Innovate to keep ahead of the market
  • Increase profitability and stakeholder value

It is clear that a range of important economic and social policies, such as those centred on macroeconomics, infrastructure or social protection, have a substantial impact on SMEs.

While most parts of the business change to some extent during periods of growth, experience and data has shown that the largest changes occur with human resources. People’s jobs and skill sets must grow to match the needs of a larger and more complex organisation.

To stay ahead of this takes great recruitment and training practices where the aim to hire and train people today with skill sets that will be needed one to three years down the road.

With the right staffing, emerging challenges related to growth can be handed down to capable managers, leaving fewer burdens resting on the Directors shoulders.

If you are looking to develop yourself or your team we may have some ideas that could help.

Tying learning and development to real on-the-job projects that have a business impact and improve learning, it is amazing what scheduled guidance, training, understanding the parameters, and understanding the mission can do for the success of an individual and organisation. It’s not easy to create opportunities that simultaneously address high-priority needs—say, accelerating a new-product launch, turning around a sales region, negotiating an external partnership, or developing a new digital-marketing strategy—and provide personal-development opportunities for the participants.

When it comes to planning the programme’s curriculum, companies face a delicate balancing act. On the one hand, there is value in off-site programmes that offer participants time to step back and escape the pressing demands of a day job. On the other hand, even after very basic training sessions, adults typically retain just 10 percent of what they hear in classroom lectures, versus nearly two-thirds when they learn by doing.

The ability to push training participants to reflect, while also giving them real work experiences to apply new approaches and hone their skills, is a valuable combination in emerging markets.

Our Learning Programmes push each and every delegate to gain a rigorous personal insight into what makes them tick and then, with that understanding of themselves, to stretch their ‘comfort zones’ into new and challenging territory.

If what you desire is a robotic, static thinker – train them. If you’re seeking innovative, critical thinkers – develop them. It is impossible to have an enterprise which is growing and evolving if leadership is not.

  • Business owners and executives who want improve their skills in a specific area
  • Small- and Medium-sized businesses who want to be more effective valuable enriched versions of themselves
