Speaker(s) IMD Prof. Alyson Meister
IMD Prof. David Bach

The unprecedented events, movements, and crises of the past years have inspired leaders - and their organizations - to ask themselves the question ‘why?’, to seek a greater sense of purpose and to have positive impact through their work. In this session we will explore the anatomy and importance of ‘purpose’ for both individuals and organizations and discover tools to help us both cultivate meaning for both ourselves and those we lead.
