SGS Academy Hong Kong - SPEED Leadership

SPEED Leadership

My Offerings


Over the last few years research has been increasingly interested in the impact of a leader’s preference for “speed” versus a “slow and steady” mode of operation. Research data discover that there’s a strong tendency for those with a “fast pace” to also have a strong preference toward “quantity” rather than “quality” of work (HBR).  However, for most highly effective leaders, neither making mistakes nor slowing down is an option. It’s clear that overall, organizational processes, communications, and human interactions in the world are speeding up and becoming more “agile” in the digital age. 

This workshop provides a framework by which participants can optimize their workplace performance through improvement in Agility and Speed. It explores Speed Leadership on two levels: on individual and team (or project) level.  During the workshop, Agile and DECA speed leadership model will be introduced and applied to enable participants following a structured approach as they apply the concepts and techniques back at their workplace.
