Because tomorrow’s leaders need to:


  • Comprehend the evolution of the wider business and socio-economic environment and understand the potential impact and opportunities;
  • Effectively manage and develop human capital;
  • Anticipate and overcome challenges with timely, relevant solutions and adaptations



At EDHEC Executive Education, we can support your organisation in developing your holistic leadership capabilities to enable your company to innovate, adapt and collaborate effectively. Together, we build truly customised and inspiring journeys that will support your strategy while respecting your culture and values.



  • Globalisation, disruption, digitalisation, social responsibility, crisis… Your organisation must constantly transform, adapt, and reinvent itself.
  • Constantly monitoring trends and changes, your leaders must anticipate how these evolutions can or will impact your business, your industry and your own internal organisation and so on. Your leadership team needs to be comfortable in ambiguous and uncertain environments, to be brave and take calculated risks to successfully overcome obstacles, whilst developing a resilience in the face of change.
  • To embody and champion change management and transformation initiatives and engage your employees and key stakeholders, your leaders and managers must develop their credibility, build trusting relationships to foster openness and collaboration. As a business you need to develop your individual and collective skills, and to refresh your knowledge and perspectives.
  • In times of crisis or in the face of a profound transformation, gaining and maintaining the support and alignment of key collaborators is critical; you need to create a mindset and environment which will allow everyone to express their potential; a culture which promotes gender and cultural diversity so that you are able to anticipate the expectations and needs of all the users of your products and services so that you can improve your potential and capacity to innovate.
