WHAT WE DO
TowerStone helps organisations embark on a journey that promotes fulfilment and engagement through Purposeful Leadership and Teamwork. If cascaded throughout the organisation, it will assist in creating a culture of Brand Ambassadorship. The following offerings support this journey:
As a Private Higher Education institution, TowerStone is committed to helping leaders discover ways to inspire their people to work at achieving fulfilment in all aspects of their lives. The Leadership Academy is centred on the belief that leaders are responsible for mobilising the hands, minds and hearts of their people to achieve sustainable results. TowerStone delivers accredited and non-accredited programmes that aim to empower our students to lead effectively in the business context by building a resilient culture that will sustain commercial growth – the real return on investment in leadership development.
Our facilitative adult learning approach focuses on convicting leaders of the need to develop their leadership style for the sake of those around them. This provides the foundation for sustainable application of learning in the workplace, integrated with a series of activities and assessments. We emphasise the importance of understanding behaviours against the context of the organisational brand, purpose and values. Central to this is the philosophy of Care and Growth (creating new levels of accountability) and Brand Ambassadorship.
