Your program director, Ben Bryant

Janus: Critical Dialogue for CEOs is directed by Dr. Ben Bryant, Professor of Leadership at IMD and Director of the IMD CEO Learning Center. Drawing on the Center’s research, he creates extended learning experiences to develop the potential of senior executives. Professor Bryant leverages the collective and individual potential of leaders by helping them learn new ways of working together and unlearn unhelpful patterns of beliefs and behaviors.

Executive learning facilitators

Executive learning facilitators will be an integral part of your learning experience. 

Before, during and after the retreat, your learning facilitator will prepare you, challenge you, create dialogue and follow up on your reflections and next steps. 

All members of the IMD team are highly qualified with vast practical experience working with senior executives including CEOs. Their insights will challenge your assumptions, beliefs, scripts, and routines.


CEO peers are vital sources of learning. Together you will question and challenge your assumptions, beliefs and approach to learning.

Distinguished guests

CEO chairs and experienced board members will be joining specific sessions and will share their own unique lessons and perspectives from many years of experience. They are carefully chosen for their capacity to help others learn.
