From management to leadership
The demands placed on today’s managers of teams are intense. No matter how impeccable their technical skills – whether in their own function or business in general – they are constantly asked to get more out of their teams. Even in the comparatively early stages of an executive career, there is pressure not just to manage but also to lead.
The High Impact Leadership Programme provides managers with the tools and processes needed to meet their organisation’s leadership challenges. Over five days, participants explore both ‘macro’ and 'micro' issues – from organisational structures, incentives and informal networks to managing performance and using feedback to enhance personal professional growth.
The macro and micro components of the programme are linked through the notion of ‘X-teams’, an influential leadership concept co-developed by INSEAD faculty, which helps participants learn how to design effective internal team processes and external networks to achieve the team’s objectives.
How you benefit
- Create and leverage networks to lead: Understand how organisations work and how to develop and use your professional network to achieve your objectives.
- Develop high-yield ‘X-teams’: Learn how to create and maintain a high-talent, high-energy and high-performance ‘X-team’.
- Improve leadership skills: Enhance your ability to obtain results through others by improving self-awareness, motivating your team and influencing your organisation.
The High Impact Leadership Programme is designed for managers with three to six years’ experience in leadership roles, including MBA graduates seeking to refresh their leadership and management skills. The programme welcomes participants from all functions and units within all kinds of companies, and will benefit a range of candidates – from high-potentials to experienced technical specialists who have come to leadership positions late in their careers.
This programme qualifies for the INSEAD Certificate in Global Management.
Featured interview with past participant of the recent
High Impact Leadership Programme
As a leader, I have become adept at what I would call the “human” side of leadership and the programme was a space to affirm and explore that further. And I’m very happy with that experience. So happy, in fact, that I’ve already signed up for my next INSEAD programme later this year!

When internal networking undermines innovation
Formal and informal communication networks often corrupt rather than complement one another.
When networks become shackles for aspiring leaders
Manoeuvering into a position of power requires building relationships that could restrain you later if left unchecked.
To change organisations, leaders need to better understand their environment, distribute leadership to their teams and improve their self-awareness.
High performing organisations distribute leadership to wherever the best information and capabilities reside.
