Wicked Leadership

As leaders, we are expected to solve problems or find the solution to every issue we face. But the realism of it all, is that only a few actual ‘wicked’ problems get solved! The coronavirus is the perfect example of the greatest wicked problem that the world is having to face and challenge, and is why we bring to your 'wicked' leadership training.

Even with all the leadership, power and authority in the world, there are some complications we simply cannot fix. Wicked leadership involves dealing with a complexity of problems that can cause a further chain reaction and multitude into more barriers and difficulties.

This online course from our Leadership and Management series, is specifically useful for individuals responsible with leading complex cross-cutting projects. We will dive into understanding the dynamic and hostility of the new coronavirus world and practice evolving applicable responses to these perplexing circumstances.  

At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.

Key training features:

  • Learn about the concepts of ‘Wicked and ‘Tamed’ problems and traditional versus systematic ways of thinking.
  • Understand how to lead through difficulty and uncertainty
  • Explore neuroscience awareness to reflect how individuals work together through understanding standard human triggers, behaviour and drive.
