``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.``
