The program is specifically designed for executives and senior managers aiming to take on greater managerial and leadership responsibilities.

Most participants come from companies operating internationally and are required to have a very good command of the English language. 

  • Acquire a more in-depth understanding of your personal leadership skills
  • Develop your ability to lead people and teams in complex environments
  • Design a personal action plan for self-improvement in order to enhance your leadership skills
  • Foster a culture of learning and shared vision in order to manage change 

In an increasingly complex economic context and during major organizational transformations, managers must be able to align themselves, their teams and their organizations in order to achieve high performance levels.

The program is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of leadership, from the big picture of your organization’s context to your own leadership preferences. It will enable you to acquire a deeper level of self-awareness, and assess your leadership style, your goals and your motivation. 

Teaching methods

The program adopts a highly interactive approach, which enables participants to seriously reflect on their leadership styles and preferences. It includes psychometrics (MBTI), 360 feedback, experiential learning, case studies, lectures and action planning.
