Building Trusted and Relationally Competent Leaders is one of the most important pillars to building a Culture of Trust. Trust is the foundational ingredient to solving business challenges.
Today’s leadership is more burdened than ever to meet prevalent business challenges in this volatile environment. Among the top business challenges today identified by AESC in 2018 are: business growth, disruption and talent retention.
Nurturing a Culture of Trust helps leaders create the environment and practices needed to address these business challenges. A culture of trust is an enabler of culture of excellence, innovation, learning/growth and more, which promote positive business outcomes.

In our 11 years as a training consultancy, we have observed among our clients that their business needs and leadership challenges are primarily people-related.
In fact, as a leader advances in seniority, the people side of his responsibilities correspondingly increases. The people issues they handle also become more complex. His ability to motivate his staff and resolve conflicts becomes even more crucial.
As a leader advances in seniority, the people side of his responsibilities correspondingly increases. The people issues they handle also become more complex.
For this reason, relational awareness needs to be a prerequisite to taking on a supervisory role. Before top performers and high potentials are given leadership roles, relational competencies need to be developed to complement their existing functional skills. This sets them up for success.
We designed 4 Relational Leadership tracks that will help achieve the leadership goals of each level of leadership.
Hi-potential or high performing individual contributors who are not yet people managers
Newly promoted leaders who have been in a leadership role for one to two years
Individuals who have been leading people for more than 3 years
Individuals who are in the C-Suite or senior management team
Practice and feedback are essential to the learning process. That is why we have designed our leadership tracks to be learning journeys that incorporate experiential programmes, facilitation sessions and executive coaching. Customised assessment tools will also be used to gain insight to each leaders’ individual approach to leadership.
Learners acquire skills in contextualised programmes, immediately followed by a period of application back at the workplace which is supported by executive coaching. This way, the learning is immediately applied with the goal of making it practically useful for each person in their specific work roles.
Individual first go through a programme where they acquire relational leadership skills as a group. Depending on the group’s needs, the programme could either be a two-day workshop or a facilitation session.
After which, we will provide executive coaching to the individuals, to support them in applying the skills into their personal and work lives.

Now that we’ve been back in the office for a couple of days, I’m already seeing instances where my officers are applying the lessons learnt at ROHEI both by initiating conversations on difficult issues, and by responding with empathy and a genuine desire to understand the other person’s perspective and feelings. I’m so heartened to see this shift and I am confident that the ROHEI programme will make us an even stronger team. Thank you for this amazing gift.
