Training: The Impact Leadership Program

Starting on October 19, 2017 Save to calendar

At Lausanne Lausanne

Organizer: Business School Lausanne, supported by the Global Compact Network Switzerland

The world has become VUCA – volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. New mega trends, such as demographic shifts, digital transformation, broken systems or climate change are creating a new landscape with new opportunities and risks. Social media redefines corporate reputation and stakeholders use their voice to actively question the purpose of the organization in relation to societal, environmental and economic problems.

Social entrepreneurs link business with solving these problems, thus shifting organizational boundaries. The challenge of the next decades is to develop future-capable solutions with the potential to propel an organization in new fields of activity, exploring markets that don’t yet exist. Such innovation requires companies to ››develop a strategic resilience, and ››build leadership competencies for the future.
Personal development takes time, so does a strategic innovation. Yet, time is running out: there is an increasingly large gap between organizational efforts and the state of the world. This gap can be seen in many ways: the technology gap, the generation gap, speed-of-transformation gap, the workplace gap, etc. The time is ripe to dedicate a full year part-time to quantum leap forward in both domains.

A top-level business advisory board co-created the Impact Leadership Program which is launching in 2017.
