Who are you capable of being?
You want to forge ahead and make things happen, but transformational leaders know that pausing, reflecting, and sense-making are just as important as acting.
IMD’s Transformational Leader is a personalized transformation journey that teaches you how to unlock the full potential of your leadership in four stages: mindful, resilient, adaptive, and evolving. The program takes place over three months, which allows you to process, reflect on, and integrate your learning between sessions. Your coach accompanies you every step of the way.
The program takes a three-dimensional approach to transformation. You explore your personal and professional identities to understand your behaviors and reshape your future. You look at how you show up as a leader in different contexts, and discover levers and tools for self-transformation. You also understand the impact of your leadership context, and how you can exercise your agency and choices with confidence.
Over the three months that follow the program, one-on-one calls with your coach and Program Director, and a coaching call with a small group of peers will continue to support your transformation journey and keep you focused on achieving your goals.
Free your leadership from limitations created by behavioral patterns, scripts, and routines, and become deeply self-aware of how you show up in each moment.
Exercise your leadership in the complex contexts shaped by your teams and your organization.
Build your adaptability and flexibility to successfully drive organizational change.
Discover and apply five essential practices that will enable you to continuously evolve over time.
Tackle your biggest challenges through experiential and reflective exercises during the program’s face-to-face stage.
Are you an experienced manager leading in increasingly complex contexts? Are you looking for opportunities for personal growth to unlock your full leadership potential and successfully lead change?
Then join other executives from different industries, cultures, and nationalities for an enriching learning experience that will help you transform yourself and your future. 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.
