London, United Kingdom
The Building Game Changing Organizations Program is hosted by London Business School
Partner companies may send 4 participants.
This program would be especially beneficial to senior level line and HR leaders who are engaged in building next generation organizational capabilities in their companies. Partner business schools may send 1 participant
Game-changing organizations rewrite traditional playbooks. They stand out. They often create disproportionate value relative to their size and resources. They have big dreams but know how to get things done. These organizations have a palpable "buzz" to them. They have a breakaway business model, but they also have a breakaway spirit and organizational culture.
Leaders of these game-changing organizations understand the power and importance of telling their companies' compelling stories. They are hard-edged business leaders but they also embrace what others might consider to be the "soft side" of leading: purpose, vision, and climate. They know how to integrate the hard and soft sides of leadership into a powerful formula that makes them game-changers. These leaders and their organizations are purpose-driven, performance-oriented, and principles-led. The weaving together of these three capabilities simultaneously is what helps them get and stay out in front.
- Participants in this program will:
- Understand what it takes to build game-changing organizations.
- Be provided with the resources and tools to articulate their company's powerful story—what we call their "collective ambition".
- Examine how to integrate the "soft" side of leading (purpose, vision, culture) with the hard side (strategy, operational priorities, brand) into a powerful formula.
- Understand the importance of building an authentic and energizing culture.
- Understand what it takes to make their companies world class talent factories.
Who Should Attend
Sponsor companies may send 4 participants. This program would be especially beneficial to senior level line and HR leaders who are engaged in building next generation organizational capabilities in their companies. Partner business schools may send 1 participant.
