Gianpiero Petriglieri (@gpetriglieri) is an Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. He directs the Management Acceleration Programme, the school’s flagship Executive Education programme for emerging leaders, and is the Academic Director of the INSEAD Initiative for Learning Innovation and Teaching Excellence.
Gianpiero's award-winning research and teaching focus on what it means, and what it takes, to become a leader. He is particularly interested in the development and exercise of leadership in the age of "nomadic professionalism," in which people have deep bonds to work but loose affiliations to organizations, and authenticity and mobility have replaced loyalty and advancement as hallmarks of virtue and success.
Gianpiero's research has appeared in the Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Learning & Education, and Organization Studies. He also writes regularly for the Harvard Business Review , where five of his essays have been included among the "ideas that shaped management" in the last decade. His work has been featured in a range of media including the BBC, Financial Times, The Economist, Businessweek, and The Washington Post. He has chaired the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on new models of leadership and has been named as one of the 50 most influential management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50 .
Building on this research, Gianpiero has contributed to refining a unique approach to experiential leadership development that aims to accelerate the development of individual leaders as well as to strengthen leadership communities within and across organisations. Alongside the Management Acceleration Programme, he designs and directs customized leadership development programmes for multinationals in a variety of industries. He aslo speaks widely on how to live, lead, and learn "on the move" without losing one's roots.
In the INSEAD MBA, Gianpiero teaches the core course "Ethics: Value-based leadership for cosmopolitans." He taught the "Leading People and Groups" core course for five years, receiving the students' Outstanding Teacher Award, and has earned numerous Dean's Commendations for Teaching Excellence in MBA and Executive Education. His executive programmes have also received school- and industry-wide awards for exellence in the practice of executive education.
