Strategic leadership occurs in three key places within an organization:

(1) At the top, where strategy for a number of business units is formulated over a given time period;

(2) In the middle, where top down strategy is translated into a business unit or regional strategy and goals are created; and

(3) At a department level, where the business unit strategy goals are translated into a number of individual objectives which are executed. At these three key levels, strategic leadership provides the scope and direction to help drive success for the organization. A major part of this success is derived from effectively managing continuous change through improvements to both people and processes. For that reason, all executives and managers must have the tools necessary for strategy formulation and implementation, and they must be ready to use those tools at a moment’s notice. Managing in an environment of change and uncertainty requires strategic leaders to consistently maintain a sense of direction, while simultaneously building ownership of goals and objectives for action within the teams they are responsible for leading.

 First Aid Training for All Walks of Life…

Why is First Aid necessary?

First Aid is the initial assistance or care of a suddenly sick or injured person. It is the vital initial care we all feel an impulse to give as soon as possible after an accident or illness. Not every incident requiring first aid will be a life and death situation and, most commonly, first aid knowledge is used to manage minor injuries at home or work. This prompt care and attention prior to the arrival of an ambulance can sometimes mean the difference between life and death, or between a full or partial recovery.

What is First Aid

First Aid training is for persons required to assess the emergency situation, to provide basic life support and basic First Aid in order to stabilize patients prior to the arrival of Emergency Services. People that have undergone First Aid training will be able to: demonstrate an understanding of emergency scene management, demonstrate an understanding of elementary anatomy and physiology, assess an emergency situation, apply First Aid procedures to a life-threatening situation and treat common injuries. 

 What does the Act say?

The General Safety Regulations, 1986 states that ‘an employer shall take all reasonable steps that are necessary under the circumstances, to ensure that persons at work receive prompt first aid treatment in case of injury or emergency.’ ‘All reasonable steps’ should include the training of employees in First Aid (done by a recognized training provider). Employees and other persons at the workplace are entitled to receive prompt, efficient first aid treatment without unnecessary delay.

As required in terms of the machinery, Occupational Safety Act, General Safety Regulation 3(4) (D), a percentage of your staff (if ten or more are employed) are required by law to be trained in emergency first aid procedures.

In accordance with the above we offer First Aid Training Program which is accredited by the Department of Labour, Health and Wellness SETA and the Southern African Resuscitation Council.

This programme focuses on learning basic and intermediate first aid skills. It is recommended for everyone as you never know when an accident might happen and you are the first person there

In our increasingly complex and interconnected world, nothing stands still for long. For leaders, the challenge is to understand how to navigate the latest developments and lead strategic change in response. But the processes which lead to effective transformation are often still ill-understood, and more than 70% of planned organisational change fails. 

When should organisations embrace and pursue change? How much change should be introduced? What parts of a system should be maintained? When change is handled badly, many problems can arise. When it is done well, change can open up many opportunities previously unrealized. Politicians, advisors, policy analysts, and public sector managers increasingly need to be effective change managers.

This course draws on state-of-the-art theory and practice of change management to produce insights for achieving successful change. Participants will gain the knowledge and tools needed to effectively plan and implement change efforts across a wide range of organisational settings, with a special focus on the public sector.

This three-day programme will equip leaders with the skills required to understand why change is needed and how to deliver it, effectively and sustainable.
