Answer Intelligence
Brian Gibkowski
Innovation culture is the work environment that leaders cultivate in order to nurture unorthodox thinking and its application. Workplaces that foster a culture of innovation generally subscribe to the belief that innovation is not the province of top leadership but can come from anyone in the organization.

Reflections with Frans Campher

Crucial Conversations
Celia Moore

Some conversations are important yet have the potential to result in conflict and negative emotions. At the same time, not all potentially conflictual conversations need to be had. How do you decide which difficult conversations you need to have and how can you best approach these conversations?

Cognitive Diversity and High Performing Teams
Frans Campher

In this session, we will talk about the diversity challenge facing managers in modern organizations. But while effectively managing diversity is challenging, it also creates important opportunities for building teams highly effective, cognitively diverse teams.

Participant testimonials

"It was a fantastic combination of lectures, real life experiences from CEO's who have faced the challenges of strategy transformation in a technology driven world as well as hearing from those that are real game changers, leading the way in what successful digital transformation looks like and the tools and mindset that make it successful. As a leader it’s easy to neglect the regular health check on how I am doing in the eyes of the people I lead but also ensuring I have the right toolset to adapt to the constant fast-paced changes driven by technology developments. The leadership course gave me the space and structure to do that which is invaluable. It resets the mind, the motivation and is a chance to keep developing. The six days were stimulating, motivating and really highlighted what an incredibly exciting time of change we are working in. The leadership course gave me the tools to draw on to help manage transformation in a refreshed and relevant way that can move with the pace of our digital transformation."
Zoe Carter
Director of Content Operations, ITV
"The programme was excellent and following a few epiphanic moments throughout the course, I now understand what is required to move from Director to Leader. Creating department strategy and recognising the value of reaching coach status. I would recommend the course for anyone who would like a high level understanding of leadership and access to the tools required to achieve this."
Marie Ravetta
Director of HR, Workshare
