After having to innovate their way through the unique challenges of last year, many hotel and hospitality executives are now re-evaluating their leadership approaches for the years to come.
There are a lot of uncertainties in the post-pandemic market, but one thing is for certain: being able to adapt to this ever-changing environment is key. Diversity, fluctuation and rapid change will continue to define the hotel industry and the global economy in the future.
We are now in the middle of what McKinsey research consultants call “The CEO Moment” — the beginning of a new era in business, which demands new types of leaders.
Hotel leaders will have to use all their critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills to ensure their business can thrive in this environment. They need to be comfortable with being uncomfortable and able to respond to crises with flexibility.
Agility, communication, critical analysis, resilience, empathy and innovative capacity are the new essential skills for 2021 and beyond. Educators have a responsibility to teach up-and-coming hotel leaders the skills they need for tomorrow.
To support hotel leaders in developing these important skills, Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School (BMIHMS) at Torrens University is proud to offer a special short course bundle, completely free in the lead up to this year’s AHICE event in Adelaide.
The Creative & Critical Thinking Short Course Bundle being given away includes these six popular hotel leadership courses:
- Design Thinking
- Develop your Critical Thinking Skills
- Analysis Toolbox
- Art of Ideation
- Lean Startup
- Introduction to B Corps
These short online courses are on-demand, so you can begin them at any time of the day. They take 1-2 hours to complete and would usually cost around $100 each. To take advantage of this offer, use promo code ‘AHICE2021’ when purchasing this short course bundle.
