In today's action-driven, 24/7, email-overloaded workplace, leaders are expected to act and react more quickly than ever before.
INSEAD Executive Coaching conducts scientific research to discover new ways to help individuals deal with challenging real-life leadership situations. Our research is grounded in academic scholarship, yet offers practical relevance for today's leaders.
Your contribution today could make a difference in tomorrow's management and leadership programmes. The findings from our study will be used to create practical leadership development tools that will enable us to further improve our programmes such as the Management Acceleration Programme and other leadership development programmes.
