Leading People and Teams

Executive education program in English

Leading People and Teams is a leadership laboratory aimed at enhancing participants’ abilities to address the complex sets of challenges facing managers in their leadership roles. The program's experiment­-based structure helps participants to gain awareness of their blind spots as leaders and develop strategies to correct them. Participants will learn how to influence decision makers in support of their initiatives, how to diagnose and remedy potentially toxic organizational dynamics, and how to bolster their leadership through a well­-functioning, productive professional network.


The laboratory’s challenging but safe environment provides participants with the opportunity to reflect on their experiences as leaders, experiment with different leadership approaches, and receive valuable feedback and support from both faculty and peers. The individual learning experiences are seconded by a full day of group executive coaching as well as post-­program follow­-ups.
