Why attend Building Game-Changing Organizations?:

Game-changing organizations rewrite traditional playbooks. They stand out. They often create disproportionate value relative to their size and resources. They have big dreams but know how to get things done. These organizations have a palpable "buzz" to them. They have a breakaway business model, but they also have a breakaway spirit and organizational culture.

Leaders of these game-changing organizations understand the power and importance of telling their companies' compelling stories. They are hard-edged business leaders but they also embrace what others might consider to be the "soft side" of leading: purpose, vision, and climate. They know how to integrate the hard and soft sides of leadership into a powerful formula that makes them game-changers. With organizational alignment, these leaders and their organizations are purpose-driven, performance-oriented, and principles-led. The weaving together of these three capabilities simultaneously is what helps them get and stay out in front.

Participants in this organizational strategy program will learn what it takes to build game-changing companies that make their teams and areas of responsibility world-class talent factories. They will also discuss the importance of building an innovative company culture and learn from the successes and challenges of various companies that have been on similar journeys of transformation.

 

Course Experience:

Building Game-Changing Organizations employs several teaching methods: faculty presentations, small group discussions, case studies, interactive exercises, and panel discussions with industry leaders from RBC and PWC. Participants will hear first-hand RBC’s journey to align purpose, performance and principles. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the distinguishing characteristics of a “Game Changing Organization,” based on real world research findings, and the challenges that accompany the journey to becoming a game-changer.

Each session is punctuated by small-group exercises, in which participants can actively apply the ideas and examples offered in class to their own specific, real-life situations. Participants will work on their own Collective Ambition and leave with an action plan on how to implement these concepts post-program.
