In today’s dynamic and ever-evolving business landscape, senior leaders face an array of strategic transformation challenges.


Navigating these challenges effectively is the key to not just survival but flourishing in the global market.


This is also a major focus of United Kingdom based leadership development organisation, These Executive Minds (TEXEM) whose founder is Nigerian born, Dr Alim Abubakre.


TEXEM’s forthcoming Executive Development Programme on Leading Transformation for Strategic Outcomes equips leaders with the tools, insights, and strategies they need to overcome these hurdles and achieve unparalleled success.


TEXEM’s programme from Nov. 27 to Nov. 30, is not just about individual success; it’s about helping Nigerian organizations to surmount their challenges, prosper, and contribute to the greater good of society.


Today, a very huge challenge is that of change resistance faced by many organizations.


One of the most pervasive obstacles in strategic transformation is the resistance to change, often deeply ingrained within an organization.


TEXEM’s programme recognizes this challenge and offers a solution that has proven successful on the global stage.


Take IBM, for instance, faced with the need to shift from hardware to solutions and services, they employed a clear communication strategy and engaged their employees in the transformation.


The result? A successful transition and thriving global business.


Furthermore, resource limitations can often stifle transformation efforts.


TEXEM’s programme addresses the challenge by focusing on strategic resource allocation.


Even giants like General Electric have encountered resource hurdles.


Yet, by streamlining their operations and concentrating on core businesses, they achieved remarkable success.


Cultural misalignment can be another major roadblock in strategic transformation.


TEXEM acknowledges this and emphasizes the importance of aligning the new strategic direction with existing organizational culture.


Apple, under the leadership of Tim Cook, provides a stellar example.


They retained their culture of innovation while expanding into services, striking a balance that led to unprecedented achievements.


Overcoming the expertise gap is one hurdle for leaders of organizations as

lack of expertise can hinder the transformation process.


TEXEM’s programme encourages leaders to bridge this gap by hiring experts, training their teams, or partnering with organizations possessing the necessary expertise.


Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn is a prime example in this regard.


This move enhanced their capabilities in social networking and professional development, strengthening their competitive edge.


The benefits of successful strategic transformation extend far and wide, impacting leaders, organizations (both government and private), and society at large.


It is a known fact that successful transformation earns leaders recognition as change agents, enhancing their personal and professional reputation.


Apart from this, accomplished transformations open doors to new leadership opportunities and career progression.


The icing on the cake is that success in strategic transformation often comes with financial rewards, further motivating leaders.


And for organizations, there is improved competitiveness, since successful transformations position organizations as more competitive in the market.


Transformations foster innovation, making organizations more adaptable to change while

streamlining operations often leads to cost savings and increased efficiency.


Talking of talents, organizations that successfully transform attract top talent, ensuring a continuous stream of innovation.


Successful organizations contribute to economic growth and create job opportunities as well.


The society where the organizations operate, benefits from improved products and services resulting from transformation.


With respect to giving back to society,

successful organizations often engage in social responsibility and philanthropic activities, making a positive impact on society.


Overall, the success of strategic transformations elevates living standards in society.


As the examples of global giants like Apple, IBM, and Microsoft show, strategic transformation is not only possible but can lead to remarkable achievements.


TEXEM’s Executive Development Programme provides the guidance and knowledge needed to tackle the challenges and reap the rewards of successful strategic transformation.


By attending this programme, senior leaders can equip themselves with the skills and strategies essential for making transformation a reality and turning challenges into opportunities.


Testimonials by Nigerian leaders who attended similar TEXEM programmes in the past are pointers to the high value placed on them.


Previous TEXEM delegate,

Otunba Sonya Ogunkuade, Hon. Commissioner and former Special Assistant to the President has the following remarks.


“I have enjoyed the orderliness of the organizers. I’ve

enjoyed the presentations of the consultants. I’ve enjoyed the practicability of the consultants.


“They bring in life examples in all their presentations, then with that one the participants were able to be carried along. It’s not theoretical.


“You know, you can see they also practicalise, by bringing in life events, even using themselves as examples. So that really sends the message deep into our hearts. And that’s wonderful”.


Prof. Kabiru Bayero (Hon. Commissioner Tax Appeal Tribunal) has the following comment.


“TEXEM is a very serious consultancy organization. I’m rating them as such because of the caliber of resources that have been mobilized to interact with us to discuss all the issues that are needed in building our leadership capacity further, in ensuring that the Tax Appeal Tribunal becomes the best adjudicator of taxes in Africa and even globally.


“So I am very, very impressed with them, and I recommend them to other institutions that are serious about ensuring effective leadership and management”.


Another past TEXEM delegate, Prof. Olatunde Otusanya (Hon. Commissioner Tax Appeal Tribunal) remarks as follows.


“TEXEM, is a good platform for advancing leadership training, and I would recommend them for any organizations or institutions that are, desirous of improving their workforce in leadership and strategic policy making”.


“I regard the These Executive Minds Executive Education programme as the best I have attended in recent times. Not one of them, but the very best as it was humanly perfect.


“My favourite thing about the programme would be…drawing our attention again to… change, which has been a constant in life experiences.


“You know, change in our lives, change, you know, in businesses,…the evolution of businesses and the way we do things…discussions, for example, on cyber security and mental health, which is not just equipping us to know what is happening around us, even equipping us personally, our mental health, paying attention to also the ever evolving cyber security,” says Ifeanyi Ani, CEO, Total Pension CPFA.
