How to reconstruct the potential of senior leaders?


An internal crisis is an opportunity to correct a mistake, while an external crisis is an opportunity to push the boundaries.

Due to the current situation, enterprises are facing a fiercer environment of competition with greater uncertainties. The uncertainty of the external environment means that the pace of change is much faster than ever, so is that of organizations in the new environment. More intense competition brings up higher requirements for the productivity of the organizations.

When there is still a lot of room in the market, the organization and the people in the organization are the core. Executives are thinking more and more about the issues of business growth and transformation in terms of culture and people.

In the face of enormous changes, in addition to growth, more and more outstanding executives have also begun to "introspect", that is, to deeply reflect on themselves. Standing at the peak of their career journey, they are exploring the driving force that stimulates internal development again and the potential of reshaping their future career roadmap.

Given the current crisis, how can global leaders lead the organizations to weather the storm? How to quickly optimize the organizational structure design limited human resources? How to stimulate self-driving force and reconstruct the potential? And how to explore a new realm of life outside of the busy career and prepare for winning the second stage?

On March 28th, 2020 , emlyon business school, a global elite institution, sincerely invites senior executives and business leaders who are willing to challenge the times and continue to grow to participate in the Online information session hosted by emlyon Global DBA(Aisa Track) Program.
