About the Course

Leaders are facing rapid change and disrupted contexts. Therefore, the need for effective leadership teams is more important than ever. But turning individuals into a cohesive and productive team is far from straightforward. However, with the right approach and the right design the potential of effective leadership teams is enormous. They allow us to draw on the rich pool of knowledge, talent, experience, and perspective of our most accomplished leaders in detecting opportunities, developing adaptive, innovative strategies, and steering the organization to sustainable success.
In this course, we address the pivotal question: What can you, as a senior leader, do to develop your leadership team into a superb team? What features can you put in place and which leadership choices can you make to get the most out of a fully aligned, smart, adaptive leadership team?

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the fundamental conditions needed for an effective leadership team
