Curriculum & faculty

This Master Class is based on three pillars. You can choose to register 1, 2 or 3 modules, with or without the leadership track.

Module 1: strategic management

Leaders provide strategic direction and are capable of mobilizing others to collaborate and share their dreams. In this module you learn both how to deal with a turbulent environment and how to balance tensions and paradoxes. This module is composed of two parts.

In the first part, Strategy Formulation, we introduce the right tools and techniques to formulate a breakthrough strategy. Classic frameworks such as environmental scanning are complemented with the Jobs-to-be-Done Theory enabling the search for competitive advantage. Based on seven tests, we offer you some rules of thumb to improve the effectiveness of your strategy.

A strategy cannot be realized without a clear, explicit and widely supported Strategy Execution process. That is the topic of the second part of this module. We share proven methods to ensure strategy execution becomes an integral part of your day-to-day operation. We challenge you to achieve an execution premium that expresses the added value and impact of a disciplined strategy process.

After this module you can:

  • translate the complexity of your environment into a clear outline for strategy;
  • make the why, what and how explicit with a clear and robust mission, vision and strategy;
  • set to work with innovative strategy frameworks;
  • transform your strategic goals into a set of KPIs and use them in a motivatingmanner;
  • embed and optimize your strategy execution processes.

Module 2: digital transformation

Though many leaders in both public and private sectors use the term digital transformation lightly, most of them are struggling with it.

Taking a systemic view, our research tries to address the challenges organizations, and in particular incumbent businesses, are facing. Based on empirical data, we identified multiple interlinked constructs that help translate strategy into tangible outcomes.

Smart business, as we call it, can unlock new sources of value. Recombining digital and non-digital resources, enabling organizational capabilities and a drive to create meaningful value can boost organizational performance and lead to better offerings, lower cost, faster time-to-market and a greater impact on customer and employee experience.

With smart business, we deliberately do not distinguish between digitization and digital transformation. After all, capitalizing on technology to thrive can go all the way from being a driver of marginal efficiency gains to being an enabler of fundamental change.

After this module you can:

  • Understand the 2 drivers of smart business: awareness & adoption of relevant digital technology, and organizational capabilities;
  • Identify relevant technologies and prioritize their resource allocation by using the ‘Smart Adoption Model’;
  • Identify alternative strategic responses to technological change;
  • Effectively make choices on how to best use technology to engage stakeholders and create a distinct advantage;

Module 3: strategic leadership & high performing teams

The ultimate goal of this module is to prepare you for the ‘human’ challenges associated with managing strategic transformation in your organization. This includes: understanding human behavior and motivation in the workplace, creating a sense of mission and purpose, self-leadership, gaining trust and commitment, executive communication and developing talent.

The first step is to create a solid base for your development as a professional and as a leader. Based on generated self-knowledge, you will discover your basic style that represents your strenght and potential biases and blind spots at the same time. You will learn how to reach your full potential. Via a 360° feedback exercise, you will receive feedback on a range of management competencies from collaborators, management team members and stakeholders.

Next, to integrate the changes within your organization, your management team members / colleagues will be invited to reflect on their team roles and levels of homogeneity versus heterogeneity. The team will receive feedback on its potential blind spots. They will learn how to build trust and protect themselves from the negative effects of groupthinking.

After this module you can:

  • Develop and affect cognitive styles and motives to lead organizational change;
  • Integrate skills of self-leadership and gain fundamental knowledge about one´s own sense of purpose, vision, and leadership;
  • Learn how to develop effective interpersonal relationships in the workplace, and especially how to develop high performance management teams;
  • Learn how to lead organizations and implement strategic change;
  • Know the difference between being a good manager or executive and an inspirational leader.

Personal leadership track

This leadership track is designed for managers / leaders who want to develop their full leadership potential. It will help them to develop the appropriate mindset and skills to deal with one of the greatest challenges in organizations: managing and motivating people to seek self-leadership, team cohesion and organizational efficiency, in both good times and times of crisis. Transforming leadership results in transforming organizations.

At our NeuroTrainingLabTM (unique in Belgium), we use a methodology for the development of leadership competencies that allows observing leadership behaviors and measuring associated neuro-cognitive activity. Its purpose is to increase EQ, performance and health in professionals by providing additional, task-based neurofeedback. Participants confront emotionally challenging business situations, interacting with one another and a specially trained actor.

You have an entire professional team at your disposal. They are well trained in integrating ‘diagnosis’ and ‘treatment’. This will not only help you to become a better, high performing leader, but your equilibrated mindset will also help you to balance your personal life. Our feedback allows you to test, observe and improve your responses, arguments, behaviors and your biometric / EEG activity.
