Program content

This empowering management development program will begin with a deep-dive into strategic issues relevant to board-level executives from a range of different angles: a view on corporate transformation from a CEO’s perspective, concepts for strategizing in markets with disruptive competition, and tools for strategic negotiations applied to mergers & acquisitions deals. In addition, you will gain insights into stakeholder activism and an international comparison of corporate governance models. Further, you will be provided with an executive insight into data analytics and discuss the challenges and opportunities of digital transformation.

As a participant, you are encouraged to bring their individual strategic challenges into the classroom and discuss these with your peers and our program facilitators in a confidential and closed environment.

The second part of this exceptional learning journey will focus on inspirational leadership. Again, we will look at leadership challenges from different angles: What are the traits of an inspiring leader? How can I expand my inspirational leadership capabilities? What is the positive side of failure? How can I prevent organizations from falling into the acceleration trap and avoid a decrease in employee motivation? And finally, how do emotions interact with leadership and how can I boost my emotional intelligence?
