An advanced leadership development program: from self-discovery to team empowerment
Self-awareness is the number one predictor of overall success in leadership, according to research. Leaders who know themselves are better equipped to understand the people they work with, make mindful choices, and provide authentic leadership that inspires trust.
Feedback is also critical to successful performance, but it becomes rare as you move up the hierarchy. Top management teams often regress and struggle with team dynamics, which impacts creativity, productivity, and effectiveness.
On IMD’s Mobilizing People program, you develop your self-awareness and grow as a leader through powerful experiential exercises, constructive feedback, and reflection. You explore the “inner game” (self-awareness, authenticity, and personal growth), and the “outer game” (energizing and mobilizing people to achieve organizational goals).
Working mainly in groups in leadership situations, and guided by experienced executive coaches, you identify the hidden dynamics that influence teams and their performance. The practical tools you learn enable you to turn those insights into action in your daily life.
Mobilizing People has transformed leaders since 1987 and constantly evolves to reflect new realities. It is a chance to focus introspectively, renew your energy, and redefine your leadership approach – an opportunity that you may never have again.
Develop a deeper understanding of yourself, your personal story, and how you lead yourself, others, and your life.
Grow your consciousness of team dynamics to be better prepared to tackle difficult conversations and manage challenges that arise within teams and larger systems, such as departments or organizations.
Augment key skills for mobilizing others, such as delegating, giving feedback, and coaching, through a deeper understanding of the underlying personal changes that influence your leadership.
Define clear next steps to ensure that you continue to shape a truly authentic and fulfilling personal leadership style and career.
Mobilizing People is particularly beneficial for senior executives who want to more effectively lead themselves, their teams and organizations. You will also gain from the program if you have experience in leading projects and initiatives involving multiple stakeholders, even if you do not formally lead a team.
Join other executives from different industries, cultures, and nationalities for an enriching learning experience. This diverse group of global peers will become a trusted resource and network as you go through your leadership journey and advance your career. Read more about the admission criteria.
