Energise your people

Virtual leadership, management and workplace learning for Africa's ambitious companies and people.

About Our Learning Approach

AMI’s learning model is built around the simple evidence-backed principle that adults learn by doing.

Instead of training teams using concepts and theories, we introduce them to practical business and management tools that can be immediately applied at work. Through powerful learning experiences and peer-to-peer support, we encourage our users to implement these tools in their organisations over time, until they become a habit.

We invite you to connect with us to learn more of how we can support you and your team.

The most valuable lesson I took away from this training is that in order to successfully lead others, you must learn to effectively lead yourself. While this seems like a simple concept, it can be challenging for many managers. Learning how to accept criticism and feedback from team members is difficult and uncomfortable, but crucial for continuing to learn, grow and develop important leadership skills.
