Senior Vice President ABB, Finland

I was maybe a little bit skeptical on how well an online course could actually engage and inspire, but it did both. There were also a lot of off-line assignments. The program far exceeded my expectations … I appreciated the interactive element designed into the course: the coach … and the changing weekly working groups offered a great network of fellow leaders from different countries, organizations and backgrounds. Exchanging ideas and reflecting on the weekly topics in this kind of environment was great.
