If you want to know how to manage with more impact and better connections to the people around you, this course is for you. You will analyse in detail the main challenges you face, with input from International faculty and – even more importantly – experienced managers from around the world. This is an unusual opportunity to examine the complex reality you manage, especially the aspects that cant be solved by an off-the-shelf quick fix. Rather, you will be guided through a ‘slow fix’ – and by the end of the week you will be clear about what to do.
At the same time you will have gained deep insight into management in other cultures and industries, working on the challenges faced by peers from all over the world – experienced managers dedicated to a level of understanding that goes beyond abstract theory or first impressions.
This course is about connecting – to peers, to your values, to humane and effective ways of managing. We look forward to getting to know you and the managerial challenges you face.
Managing Around the World: RoundTables for Experienced Managers is a one-week intensive course for people who find themselves leading and managing in complex environments. Now in its 14th year, the course has a reputation for both thoughtfulness and pragmatism. The course is unusual in several ways: it is centred around the current managerial challenges that participants face in their jobs; there are very few formal lectures – but skilled and experienced faculty work alongside participants in structured activities – not role-play or management games: but detailed and sustained analysis, based on innovative concepts and techniques.
Some of these are described in more detail on this website; but often the most important ingredients are the conversations that happen in between, amongst participants and with faculty.
