The LLC Academy, a 73.57% Black Owned Level 2 Designated Group Supplier, offers a vast array of courses intended to educate and uplift your organisation’s employees, while ensuring that this investment in the future of your business goes even further to positively benefit your B-BBEE scorecard. One such course is the Vision Led and Values Driven Leadership Programme.
“The Vision Led and Values Driven Leadership Programme has a focus on crafting stronger work cultures with high employee morale and engagement,” says Eileen Thornhill, Director of The LLC Academy. “It helps students to learn to see every part of a business through the lens of its values and purpose. It is about creating congruence between purpose and values, as well as profit, and ultimately shaping a culture that is conducive to success.”
“The benefit of this is, of course, ongoing sustainability,” says Thornhill. “For far too long, businesses have focused on profit and generating value for shareholders to the exclusion of anything else. It’s all too easy to focus on those who are providing your funding and whom you need to keep happy, but to make this focus all encompassing, to the exclusion of all else, is where things being to fall apart.”
“There needs to be a balance between recognising and rewarding those who have invested in your business, but also in building continuity, in making your business sustainable,” says Thornhill. “This is why the Vision Led and Values Driven Leadership Programme explores how students can become more anchored in Servant Leadership, with a strong emphasis on ethics and integrity.”
“With COP 27 flooding the news headlines, and a greater global recognition of the need for humanity to pay attention to the ways in which we are denuding non-renewable resources, this programme is of particular significance,” says Thornhill. “While it is not focused on ethics and integrity with regards to the environment, it is worthwhile to note that the business ecology is as much a part of a sustainable future for all as the renewed focus on our environment as a whole. The Vision Led and Values Driven Leadership Programme aims to help students learn to create a work environment in which employees at all levels of your organisation feel respected, appreciated, and valued – building blocks to empower them to become ethical leaders themselves.”
“Additionally, the Vision Led and Values Driven Leadership Programme is an in-depth learning journey, in which we explore and equip leaders with ways to embody agile leadership,” says Thornhill. “This leadership agility allows students to lift their relevance levels and become future fit. It is about using rank and power consciously, in a way that empowers the organisation and drives the culture you want to achieve.”
