Sustainable Transformation: Using Foresight, Innovation & Leadership to Create Integrated Value

Wayne Visser, PhD Academic Director Knowledge Community The Sustainable Transformation Lab

Are you fit for the future? Is your strategy aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030? Will your product, organization, community, city or country survive and thrive in 10, 20, 50 or even 100 years? This half-day elective will introduce you to the global mega-trends and frameworks for innovation, leadership and value creation that you can apply to be more resilient and successful in the 21st century. 
This course explores these questions through four pathways to sustainable transformation: Positive Futures, Integrated Value, Meaningful Innovation & Purposeful Leadership.

When the shit hits the fan, how will you manage?

Professor Hugo Marynissen, crisis strategist, Academic Director Executive Phd, AMS

Whether you like it or not, one day things will go awfully wrong in your organization. The question is not if it will happen, but when. When a crisis hits you hard in the face, nothing is under control. Moreover, others will suddenly intervene; media, shareholders, customers, regulators, and many more you wouldn’t expect to have a say in your misery. The question is though: how do you manage, and what and whom can you rely on? 
Based on recent real-life cases in various fields (finance, health, food, just to name a few), you will get all the practical ins and outs that will help you to keep your head cool when things get terribly out of control.

Corporate Entrepreneurship / Entrepreneurship in large companies

Professor Robin De Cock, Acedemic Director, Master in Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Many new waves of the digital revolution, new business model innovations and a move of young intellectual capital to the start-up world are hitting an increasing number of established companies, harder than ever before, affecting even companies in very traditional industries. The (future) leaders in any industry will be forced to implement an entrepreneurial mindset and strategy in their established companies to deal with or proactively orchestrate constant waves of innovation. 
The session builds on academic insights and frameworks to better understand how corporates can think and act as start-ups to convert new business ideas into business successes. It provides a better understanding of how corporates can become more entrepreneurial by either building on their existing workforce or making stronger connections with the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Neuroleadership

Prof. Steven Poelmans, Professor Neurosciences & Strategic Leadership, Antwerp Management School en EADA Business School (Barcelona)

This seminar is for the leaders and shapers of this new world. Those who understand that the level of complexity of the change we face requires many individual brains to be orchestrated in unison. This requires changing and accelerating our processing power through leadership, to intertwine individual intelligence and create a higher-order, collective acumen. 


It is about how to lead and interconnect people in the knowledge and service society, with the brain in mind. The knowledge base of this session consists in the integration of different sources: Intelligence about how the brain works, based on the most recent advances in neuroscience; hundreds of coaching processes with managers from more than 30 countries, helping them with a diverse range of (self)leadership issues; data gathered over the last four years using a proprietary methodology called the “NeuroTrainingLab™”, observing over 500 processes of manager-employee interactions, gathering multi-level data of their discourse, non-verbal behavior, and neurophysiologic activity while confronting challenging social situations involving real people in realistic simulations. The session builds on academic insights and frameworks to better understand how corporates can think and act as start-ups to convert new business ideas into business successes. It provides a better understanding of how corporates can become more entrepreneurial by either building on their existing workforce or making stronger connections with the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
