An innovative package of leadership and management development
Leading for the Future is an innovative package of leadership and management development which has been designed specifically for people in senior leadership positions within a corporation headquartered in Western Europe. Active within the energy industry, this corporation has worldwide operations and is facing relevant challenges requiring effective tools and mindsets.

Integrating high-level technical skills to a broader organizational awareness
One of the biggest challenges in career development is integrating high-level technical skills to a broader organizational awareness. It requires shifting perspective from concrete, specific skills to more abstract, multifaceted views that come with higher levels of complexity and ambiguity. In other words, a more strategic understanding of the entire organization and the ability to manage and to enhance the decision-making processes in volatile, uncertain and complex environments.
Leadership mindsets for an uncertain world
Leaders are decision makers in a VUCA world: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. How to be effective leaders at home and abroad? How to make smart decision? What neuro-strategy can teach us about good decision-making?
Today’s executives must deal with continual, rapid change. Management techniques must track the business environment continuously, to assess change and adapt. Managing change does not mean controlling it, but rather understanding it, being more sensitive and flexible, and guiding it as much as possible. Business leaders should think in terms of goals and barriers. So, how To Think in Terms of Goals and Barriers? How to deal with challenges and obstacles in an effective way? How to Facilitate Change and Adaptation at a Personal and Organizational Level?
Senior executive roles and challenges
What is exactly about senior executives that sets them apart from everybody else? We’re talking about the rare quality or qualities that elevate them above the rest of the workforce. What are their short and long-term targets for the organization, and what are the obstacles likely to stand in the way of success? Senior executive roles require the vision and clarity of mind to identify these challenges, then select the course of action that delivers the most favorable outcomes.
The latest discoveries from neurosciences

Communication and leadership: Visual techniques and cards for collaboration in order to facilitate a team workshop, plan an event with a team, capture the attention of people, ease the tension during a negotiation, clarify the main points in a board room discussion, stand out from the crowd of presenters at a management conference.
Managing a high performance organization: Managing strategically the processes with a customer focus.
How to manage in the era of the digital revolution? How to increase competitiveness and corporate social responsibility—and sustainability–at the same time? How to take really care of stakeholders and shareholders?
Today’s businesses face unprecedented challenges. Leaders are confronted with increased competition, globalization, demand for growing social responsibilities, technological changes, and new strategic thinking. These need to be managed to build and sustain a high-performance organization.
Working on behavioral leadership is crucial for creating awareness about managers role, building up safety leadership skills, motivating them to get on board in this process, engaging them through the personal commitment and supporting them with some effective tools, both at personal and organizational levels.
How to inspire and influence?
How to inspire and motivate individuals, manage talent, influence and lead teams?
How to survive, navigate and lead organizational change?
Which are the competencies related to self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management? How to enable people to understand and manage their own and others’ emotions in social interactions? How to be intelligent in an effective way, from an emotional and social perspective?
How to deal with employee resistance and work-based identities?
“Glocal” and virtual teamwork
How to manage and lead an international team? What are the main challenges and risks of leading intercultural teams? Why and when the today’s world is “glocal”? How to succeed? In a “glocal” world, where problems cross borders between cultures, we need leaders who can cross those boundaries and cross cultures too. How to leverage networking and virtual team-working using technology to communicate and collaborate?
Contextual and cultural intelligence
How to develop contextual intelligence to succeed in a complex environment? Contextual intelligence is new on the scene: it deals with the practical application of knowledge and information to real-world situations, and can be defined as the capacity to exploit business moments and operational events in a way that enables to make informed decisions and take effective action in varied, changing and uncertain situations.
How to negotiate in uncertain situations? And how to manage a conflict or a meeting? Trying to apply management practices uniformly across geographies is a fool’s errand, much as we’d like to think otherwise.
Diversity and inclusion
A strategic challenge of leadership is to find the right balance between impact and versatility and the successful crafting of an identity that merges the leaders and the surrounding culture. If leadership is going to achieve acceleration throughout the organization, leaders are expected to be four times more effective in their roles. If the organization is also fostering diversity management as a best practice, encouraging all the corporate people to be comfortable with diversity in the workplace and develop an appreciation for differences (mainly in ethnicity, gender and age), the path to the success is there.
What is disruptive innovation? Why are some organization more competitive than others? Why do some people get ahead while others do not?
