Today’s global economy and increasingly complex world require organizations and their leaders to develop the specific skills to anticipate, adjust, and adapt to this rapidly changing business landscape. The Global Leadership Executive Forum is the demanding flagship program in the leadership seminar curriculum of Carnegie Bosch Institute, enabling participants to make a greater impact on the success of their multinational companies. The program is specifically designed to provide international managers with the knowledge and skills in the key areas necessary to effectively lead in a global business environment.
Led by world-class faculty from around the globe, the intensive four-week program integrates three focus areas in an international context:
The program addresses key issues of strategy, business and leadership. By learning and working together with peers from other functional areas, industries and cultures, participants gain different perspectives of topics with broad economic and international scope.
Learning occurs in a highly interactive setting that incorporates thought-provoking lectures, case studies, experiential small group workshops, team coaching, learning stewardship, and innovative project work with real-life business partners.
The program provides a transformational learning experience. Participants will test their individual assumptions, provoking new ways of thinking about global markets, strategy, value creation, and leadership. Personal growth is an important element of the program, with 360 degree feedback and team coaching integrated into the curriculum.
Emphasis throughout the Global Leadership Executive Forum is on shifting the learning from classroom concept to relevant application in the real world.
The following topics are typically covered over the course of the program. The ever-evolving global marketplace drives final program content.
