``The Pandae Management team engaged in the RainTree Empowered Leaders Group Session, a 10 session programme which aimed at developing new and enhance, existing leadership and management skills.

Each training session was carefully linked, to enable each manager to understand themselves, their strengths, and flaws, not just personally but professionally as well. This could only be achieved through the team’s honesty and willingness to learn. After each session you could sense an air of completeness and acuity of each other’s presence and potential in the work environment.

With the emphasis being on goal setting from the beginning of the program, this flow through during all sessions, set the rhythm of each session, which all managers enjoyed particularly the junior managers.

The sessions that focused on inter communication were extremely valuable to our team, as we have a large employee base of varying levels. It gave great guidance and vision on how to best communicate with all levels of employees.

Each session came with practical insight which accelerated the management team’s, maturity in dealing and bridging that generational & cultural gap between General Staff & Management.

The most prevalent note of the Rain Tree sessions is that it encouraged the junior managers to “branch” out of their shells, thus allowing them to explore entire new possibilities. They also realised their potential through authentic and active participation at each session of the training.

The changes are evident, communication has greatly improved, each department has adopted a learning culture mentality, which has assisted in creating cohesion in the departments.

The program was enjoyed, especially by the junior management who had not before been exposed or participated in such a program.``

    Igniting Leaders

    Igniting Leaders

    RainTree’s vision is to work with management teams and ignite your leaders to behave as though they are partners in your business. Empowered leaders are strong allies. There is no better advocate for your business than a manager who has partnered with you in the leadership process to grow your business. We stoke the fires within each participant, igniting and inspiring them to become managers and leaders that grow themselves and your business.

    Leadership Coaching

    Leadership Coaching

    Many companies look for management training programmes to instruct their management teams on how to lead. We don’t train your managers. We coach them.

    Through coaching, managers are supported to access their unique reservoir of leadership knowledge and talents. The coaching provides impactful tools that frame the leadership thinking and behaviors. Managers take ownership and craft how they will influentially lead. Coaching does not prescribe a solution but allows the leader to understand themselves and develop a leadership way that works for their team and the business as a whole.

    Sustainable Empowerment

    Sustainable Empowerment

    At RainTree we believe in sustainable solutions. We work to ensure that the lessons you (and your management team) learn about yourself, and your leadership style stay with you for life. We know that efficiently maturing strong, resilient and confident leaders will support long term business sustainability across the African landscape.
    Coaching does not prescribe a solution but allows the leader to understand themselves and develop a leadership style that works for their team and the business as a whole, and can be applied throughout their professional lives.
