Roger Lehman is Affliate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise at INSEAD’s Singapore campus where he designs and teaches in both open and company specific programs, providing a focus on executive leadership, personal and professional development, change management and high performance teams. In 2002 Roger was instrumental in setting up the INSEAD Global Leadership Center (IGLC) serving as its first Executive Director. He remains as a member of the core faculty team within the IGLC. As co-designer and Program Director of INSEAD’s innovative Coaching and Consulting for Change Program (CCC), he is deeply involved in supporting leadership transformational processes. Most recently he has been active in steering the CCC program through its own transformation into an Executive Masters Degree program, the first such degree program to be offered by INSEAD. In June 2010 Roger was appointed as Director of the INSEAD Executive Masters in Clinical Approaches to Management, an 18 month advanced degree program. As Chair of the Academic Advisor Committee for the Executive Masters Degree, Roger’s involvement continues to focus on the expansion and development of executive education at INSEAD.
Roger’s clinical, teaching and organizational consulting career spans over 35 years during which time his experience has included a variety of staff and leadership positions in both public and private institutions. Over the past 12 years his teaching and consulting have led him to a variety of international assignments on all continents… including Antarctica. In addition to his extensive involvement in the Executive Masters Program, Roger’s current focus is on leader development in Asia and Africa.
As a result of his extremely varied academic background (anthropology, sociology, clinical social work, psychiatry and religion, clinical and organizational psychology and psychoanalytic training) Roger brings a variety of “lenses” to his understanding of both leader and leadership development. His formal academic degrees include Masters degrees from both Rutgers (Social Work) and Princeton Theological Seminary (Psychiatry and Religion) as well as a Ph.D. from the Florida Institute of Technology (Clinical Psychology). He completed his psychoanalytic training at the Sigmund Freud Institute, Frankfurt Germany in 1996.
He is an active member of the American Psychological Association, the International Psychoanalytic Association and the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations. Over the years he has been instrumental in helping to bridge the gap between the psychoanalytic and business communities.
When not traveling, Roger resides in Singapore with his wife, Tessa. They have two adult sons who are completing their university studies in the US.
