Phil's Book Club

How to be an effective leader

Join us on 22 April for the first meeting of Phil’s Book Club, where we will discuss The Ride of a Lifetime, Robert Iger's analysis of the lessons he learned while running Disney. Even if you haven't had time to finish the book, join us to dissect the principles that are necessary for true leadership. Register below 

This session led by IMD Professor of Strategy and International Management Phil Rosenzweig revolves around “The Ride of a Lifetime:  Lessons in Creative Leadership from 15 Years as CEO of The Walt Disney Company”, by Robert Iger.

Iger’s book provides a brisk account of his years at company that we all know: Disney.  Along the way, he imparts his lessons about effective leadership that may be relevant for managers in all industries, not only entertainment and media.

This is a highly readable book that lets us ask some probing questions about leadership and success, and is a good way to start.

Time: 11:00 and 18:00 (CEST)
