The demands placed on today’s managers of teams are intense. No matter how impeccable their technical skills - whether in their own function or business in general they are constantly asked to get more out of their teams. Even in the comparatively early stages of an executive career, there is pressure not just to manage but also to lead.
INSEAD’s High Impact Leadership Programme enables managers to rise up to the leadership challenge. Over five days, it guides participants from ‘macro’ issues such as organisational structures, incentives, and informal networks to ‘micro’ topics like managing performance, providing and using feedback to enhance personal and professional growth. The macro and micro components of the programme are linked through the notion of ‘X-teams’, an influential concept co-developed by INSEAD faculty that helps participants learn how to design effective internal team processes and external networks to achieve the team’s objectives.
