The Modular Approach to Executive Development
To stay ahead in the fast growing Asian economies, most businesses compete for a limited talent pool of potential leaders.
The Accadence EDP equips your front line managers with the awareness, concepts & key skills to lead in a fast-moving, growth business.
Accadence recommends a modular program, where you select only the modules that you need when you need them to enable your managers to be successful. All the modules are half a day long, so you have flexibility to define the duration and the content of your program.
Modular means: You can access world class executive development in a format that suits you.
From a half day module to plug into your team meeting to a structured, year-long development program. You choose.
It is a practical program combining facilitated-learning, action-learning, coaching and learning on the job, which suits whole management teams or selected Talents from a single organization.
The participants will grow from Managers to Leaders through what they learn, but also due to the intense team-working, experiences and experimentation together, it can be designed as a landmark transitional experience on their journey to leadership, which accelerates the career and heightens commitment and engagement when back at work.

"I have helped hundreds of professionals to get the roles they want, succeed at work and lead their teams or organisations. I have learnt that the most effective executive development comes from working interactively in small groups on real issues. Accadence Workshops address the key challenges you face at work today.
We learn best together. So we focus on learning in action, where the participants put their learning into practice in the room and help each other to polish their game. My role is to facilitate the learning, teach some best practice and offer objective insights. We learn from each other's experiences, challenges and 'Aha' moments.
We learn best hands-on. So we work on the authentic challenges, problems and questions brought by the participants. The workshop focuses on learning through the participants' live issues. We learn from each other's real world experience, and we all coach each other.
Some Workshops are packaged with Psychometric Assessments or one-to-one Coaching where helpful to integrate the learning experience. All Workshop participants receive homework to complete before the workshop to get the most out of the experience."
