Leadership development remains a key priority within the Group as part of our cultural transformation journey that started in 2019. The AfroCentric Leadership Competency Model, encompassing our five leadership competencies of ownership, credibility, influence, collaboration and entrepreneurship, drive our leadership behaviours across the Group. Leadership Competency Enablement workshops, Grow Coaching workshops and Lessons in Leadership sessions took place for all leaders across the Group to continue to educate our leaders on those competencies required of an AfroCentric leader.
Through our accredited Learning and Performance Academy, we promote a learning culture and provide opportunities for leaders to participate in one of our two Team Leader curriculum or one Line Manager curriculum intakes throughout the year.
44 Team Leaders and Operational managers attended the internal leadership development curriculums.
