Leading Leaders

Live Learning | Online courses

In our uncertain, rapidly changing world, the day of the individual heroic leader is over.  We face massive challenges globally–climate disruption, pandemics, water and food crises, to name a few.  We also hold great aspirations: to protect the health of our planet, promote pathways out of poverty, and assure health and access to education for all.  These challenges and aspirations cannot be addressed by any one institution or any leader alone, however visionary.  It requires collaborative leadership.  How ready are you to lead alongside other leaders?  How can you work effectively and closely with others who are leaders in their own right?  How can you elicit, support, and unleash the leadership capacities of your own teams?

In the Leading Leaders course, we will explore and deepen your capacity for collaborative leadership. Through dialogue, practice, and reflection, we will build your repertoire of leadership approaches that build your ability to lead with others.  We will address such modern leadership practices as using story to identify shared values with other leaders, helping others operate at their best, understanding how to handle complexity and remain centered, and building great collaborative leadership teams that help you achieve collective aspirations.

  • Understand how to build collaborative leadership through shared values
  • Develop your capacity to handle complexity
  • Understand how to build great leadership teams
  • Develop simple but profound daily leadership practices that enhance your effectiveness and resilience as a leader of leaders

For senior managers who want to deepen and expand their ability to lead other leaders, and meet the challenges of the future.

This highly interactive course blends team and individual exercises, lecturettes, case discussions, and guided practice to expand your capacity to strengthen your own leadership and that of others around you.

Advanced English skill is necessary to understand and to interact during this course.
