To develop leaders who are ready and able to master the new operating environment.

A new Industrial Revolution is fundamentally changing the way the global economy is organised. Whereas steam power, electricity, and computers defined the first three, the next is being shaped by algorithms, artificial intelligence, machine learning, mobile computing and the proliferation of inexpensive sensors collecting and interpreting terabytes of data.

Disruptive technologies are driving exponential growth for those who can master it, for others it spells disaster

Context and Overview by Shahid Din (Chairman, The Learning Initiative)


Leaders MUST

· Grow others
· Provide the personal & professional guidance each employee needs to assume increasing levels of responsibility in this digital world

To achieve this we need to reprogram ourselves to become  transformational Leaders, coaches, Learn Business Agility and Empower the workforce using TEECH

Transformation is all about creating the new future we see ahead of us and simply not just trying to do things faster. The People and Process side of things are very often overlooked with the buzz of ArtificiaI Intelligence, Data Science and Internet-of-Things but this is EXACTLY where we need to focus to get this right. After all, Transformation should be measurable and aligned to Business Results. 

We understand Digital Business Transformation and what it takes to be ready to embark on such a journey

  • Direction and Reality 
  • Transformational Mindset
  • What is the problem we are solving when we transform?
  • Execute

How you can become Future Ready by Tariq Qureishy (CEO, Xponential)


Selecting your Future Leaders runs deeper than simply identifying your top performers. The operational capabilities that once served them are no longer what going to take them into the future. 

Transformational Leadership Attributes are different!

 Future Leaders need to unlearn and relearn the new success patterns and in an era of machines it requires us to also have the TEECH attributes to ensure a successful future for them and also the organizations we entrust the run. 

We are moving into an era where we need to provide the machines with the guiding principles.

 Armed with the Mindset, the right attributes and knowledge, Tomorrows Leaders will change the world we operate in.

“Only when you know where you actually are… … then will you know where you need to go!”
