REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

Today's business leaders face tough challenges. At the same time, more and more pressure is being imposed on their professional and private lives. During an impactful week of Orchestrating Winning Performance (OWP) in Lausanne, more than 350 executives recently explored various ways to achieve sustained leadership by focusing on mental, emotional and physical health. Here, we bring you highlights from the program. 

The leadership journey continues as IMD heads to OWP in Singapore, taking place November 17-22, 2014. We hope to see you for the opportunity to explore global trends in Singapore!

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
