In business, executives often focus on models of rational analysis, paying far too little attention to the idiosyncrasies and irrational processes that make up individual human behaviour. At the heart of success however, lies a true understanding of the emotional side of decision-making.
The Challenge of Leadership aims to improve your understanding of how human behaviour affects the functioning of an organisation. By focusing on conscious and unconscious behaviour, as well as rational and irrational action, you will learn to manage irrational and dysfunctional processes in your company. You will explore your personal leadership style and address ways of dealing with processes that fall outside recommended models.
Participants of this highly selective programme are: senior leaders from large and medium-sized firms; entrepreneurs; or senior executives in the public sector. Typically CEOs or board members, participants hold top-level positions and are in the mature phase of their careers.
