10 Sep 20 Leadership Checkup Series 2020/2021

INSEAD / 14:30 - 19:30

Dear INSEAD Alumni,
We hope that you have been able to navigate resiliently through these unprecedented times. If you are to perform at the highest level in the ‘new normal’, it is more critical than ever that you continuously develop your leadership capabilities, remain adaptive and manage your energy holistically. In this spirit, we are delighted to invite you to the Leadership Check-up Series (LCS) 2020/2021 delivered through a powerful combination of face-to-face and virtual sessions.

Join us for a multi-session leadership development journey exclusively for INSEAD alumni in Switzerland. You will apply state-of-the-art methodologies and tools to take your leadership abilities to the next level with coaching from leading experts in their fields. In between the four main sessions, each of you will have the opportunity to benefit from two individual coaching sessions and two group coaching sessions to further accelerate your growth.

Leadership Check-up Series 2020/2021
To stay on top of their game, elite athletes and teams constantly review and reflect on their performance, taking stock of their achievements while learning from setbacks. Executives can benefit from applying this same philosophy to their leadership development. Setting new personal development objectives regularly and evaluating progress is the best formula for achieving high performance and promoting lifelong learning and development. The LCS was launched with great success in Switzerland in 2019 by Professor Vincent H. Dominé, INSEAD Adjunct Professor of Organisational Behaviour, and Fabio Coluccia, INSEAD Leadership Consultant. We look forward to having you join the journey!

“Leadership always starts with oneself and it is a
lifelong learning journey. The Leadership Check-up Series 2019 grew my self-awareness and provided insights on how physical, mental and emotional energy contribute to higher performance. The LCS offers a great balance between peer learning within the powerful INSEAD network, theory and real-life implementation.”

Leadership Check-up Series 2020/2021

Session 1: Leadership Diagnostics and Outlook at the Individual Level
Where do you currently stand in terms of leadership effectiveness? What are strengths that you may not be leveraging to the fullest? What are your possible areas of development? What are some of your drivers and blockers for change and what are concrete action steps you can take to reach your personal development objectives? Session 1 will help you reflect and find answers to these questions.
Delivered by Professor Vincent H. Dominé and Fabio Coluccia
Timing: September 10, 2020, 14:30h – 19:30h CET
Location: Zurich 

Session 2: Leadership Diagnostics and Outlook at the Team Level
Leadership never happens in a vacuum – it is always embedded in a context with other people. Whether you are leading or are part of an intact team, a project team, a work group, a committee or a board of directors, one of your key responsibilities as a leader is to continuously manage collective performance. In this session, you’ll be able to assess your ability to achieve team effectiveness, learn about the conscious and unconscious factors affecting group dynamics, and explore drivers and blockers of change affecting collective development. You will then identify specific action steps to increase collective performance.
Delivered by Professor Vincent H. Dominé and Fabio Coluccia
