Dear Reader,

Upon being confirmed as IMD President for a permanent term, IMD Professor Dominique Turpin stated: "I am looking forward to partnering with all of our stakeholders in making IMD's vision a reality."

This vision is embedded in IMD's values: Open, Collaborative and Pioneering. In our final Webletter of 2010, IMD Professor Bettina Büchel looks at characteristics of a pioneering leader, while Professor Bill Fischer outlines how collaboration can lead to co-creating "wow! effects."

Check out these articles and more. And by the way, don't forget this is one of your last opportunities to play IMD's contest "Go Beyond What You Think is Possible," which will give you the opportunity to win a free seat in the Orchestrating Winning Performance program.
Wishing you a happy holiday season,
The IMD Webletter Team
