Next Generation Leader - PwC’s New Leadership Programme

A journey into leadership, strategy and transformation for the 21st Century

What is the programme about?

Today, leaders are asked to lead in a world that is unlike anything anyone has ever experienced. Rapid advancements in technology, changing employee and customer demands and the evolving world of work means leaders must be equipped to champion and manage these challenges effectively. With evolving socio-demographic forces and changing workforce expectations affecting individuals, organisations, governments and society alike, the need for a new form of leadership has never been more critical.   

There are six leadership paradoxes which are becoming increasingly important for leaders to navigate. Our learning journey helps you experience how these paradoxes should be considered as a system; how they impact each other and how they all need to be balanced simultaneously. By the end of the programme, you will truly differentiate yourself as a leader, learning how to comfortably inhabit both elements of each paradox with great success.
