Program learning journey
Program learning journey
Step 1 - Reframe your thinking
LiVe virtual - 6 half-day sessions over 2 weeks

In this first step, we kick off the program together to ensure that you get the best value for yourself and your organization.

You identify the business challenge you want to work on, learn a complex problem-solving framework to apply to it, and start examining internal and external factors that affect your organization. In addition to complex problem-solving, key topics you will explore include macro trends and outside-in perspective, strategy design and execution, corporate culture, and high-performance teams.

After gathering feedback on your business challenge from your team at work, you refine it further with your personal executive coach.

These liVe sessions enable you to meet the other participants and form home learning groups.

Step 2 - Explore & design your strategy
Face-to-face - 2 weeks of experiential learning, coupled with a leadership workshop in the mountains

This step allows you to gain fresh insights by deep diving into foundational business topics. You will look at strategy, innovation, marketing and finance through the lens of transformation and agility, digital disruption, sustainability, and data-driven decision-making.

On top, the immersive 3-day leadership workshop in the mountains enables you to focus on self-awareness, team dynamics and the importance of adopting a growth mindset.

Working with a global cohort of senior executives, faculty and your own executive coach, you design your strategy and a concrete action plan to resolve your business challenge for implementation back at work.

Step 3 - Refine & take your strategy forward
