Learn to lead in a fast-changing digital world

Faced with new responsibilities, emerging leaders need to learn new skills and gain more self-awareness in order to motivate, inspire and lead high-performing teams. Moreover, in today’s increasingly digitised and interconnected world, boundaries are blurred, collaborations are more fluid and the pressure on businesses to be agile is immense.

Developing Emerging Leaders provides a unique perspective on leadership, designed to help executives adapt to the challenges faced by organisations in a digital environment. As an emerging leader, the programme takes you on a journey of learning to lead yourself – and then translates that knowledge into leading others and forming effective team collaborations. It will equip you with skills to overcome the constraints of your organisation’s leadership culture, and help you to step forward with a new perspective on leading your team in the digital age.

Deepen the impact of your Action Learning Project (ALP) with more extensive, in-depth coaching

Working closely with your coach throughout the programme, the Action Learning Project (ALP) is a key cornerstone of the learning journey and impact of our online programmes at INSEAD. They enable you to fully customise your project around a specific need, challenge or opportunity that you or your organisation are facing.

The Premium Journey offers a more extensive, accelerated and in-depth learning coaching that gives you the chance to take your ALP further and translate all the key learnings from the programme into an impactful plan. This additional on-going support after the programme enables you to iterate your project with the support of your experienced learning coach. They will continue to support you until the final coaching session, acting as a sounding board to help you deeply reflect on the concepts and tools and to successfully apply them to your project.
