This program is a leadership laboratory dealing with the why and how of behavior in organizations. Unlike many other programs, it goes beyond the obvious, conscious, and rational side of human function, adding the opportunity to explore productive – and destructive – drives that individuals subconsciously follow in organizations.
Leading with Psychological Intelligence responds to the increasing demand from executives looking to enhance their leadership efficacy through better connections with subordinates, peers, and superiors.
For an entrepreneur building a company – or an entrepreneurial thinker strengthening an existing organization – moving beyond the leadership comfort zone is more than an option: it is necessary for survival.
In management we tend to focus on success stories. But based on what we read and hear each day, it may be more interesting to learn how strong organizations get themselves involved in disasters or bankruptcies, despite the fact that their managers have solid professional backgrounds.
The Young Leaders Program (YLP) is an introduction to the reality, the contexts, and the personal aspects of leading. Participants will first reflect on the contextual aspects of their roles, relating them to corporate and departmental strategies, teams they lead, cooperations and coalitions within and outside organizational boundaries. In the second part of the program, the young leaders will work on their personal approaches to leadership. They will become familiar and experiment with various leadership styles, explore their personal leadership ambitions, and reflect on the responsibilities they have taken on by accepting a leadership role.
This program prepares participants to meet the problems that come with initiating and implementing change. During the three-day program, participants will examine change processes and the psychological, political, and organizational issues they induce.
