Landbank Certificate Ceremony 25 May 2012
“I now know the theory behind the course. How to delegate and engage staff in projects you are faced with. We learnt about the 5 ‘P’s. ‘Proper planning prevents poor performance’. Sometimes uncertain circumstances prevent you from performing. We also leant make sure that staff grasp what is expected of them – this will enable them to perform accordingly. I enjoyed the course on a personal level – it was interesting to learn about leadership styles and our thinking preferences. People have different thinking preferences and bring their own strengths to a project.”
"I am a new manager. The course helped me a lot to understand the team I work with and my manager. It helped me to look at 4 different perspectives before taking a decision."
"Personally I thought it was a fantastic course. It is a great privilege for managers to have the opportunity to attend a programme like this. All future business leaders should have an opportunity like this."
Stephan van Vuuren
"This course comes at a right time. When management feels that they are part of a strategy of the bank . It is now easier for management to communicate with staff as they are now aligned to what senior management wants to achieve."
