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.

What does it take to be an effective and mindful leader in such a dynamic world? How do you become more resilient and better at leading and making decisions in such uncertain times? Do the traditional models of leadership hold, or is the digital age seeing a new brand of leaders emerge?

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.

  • Discover how to create a workspace that motivates your team members to give their best while becoming skilful at providing feedback and having difficult conversations

Take your Action Learning Project to the next level for unprecedented impact


You now have the option to choose the Premium Journey for this programme and deliver an entirely new level of impact – for your organisation and your professional development.

The Premium Journey gives you the chance to take your INSEAD Action Learning Project much further. Working closely with your learning coach throughout the programme, you will fully customise your project around a specific need, challenge or opportunity that you or your organisation are facing. The journey begins with a phase of conceptual learning, during which you will formulate a plan for applying the concepts through your Action Learning Project, supported by in-depth conversations with your learning coach. This is followed by a phase of experimentation where you will iteratively implement your Action Learning Project in your organisation, assess results and adapt as needed. Your learning coach will continue to support you during this phase, acting as a sounding board to reflect deeply on what works, what doesn’t work and why.

By the end of your Premium Journey, you will be ready to deliver a robust, tested and validated plan for action – to create unprecedented value and impact for you and your organisation.
