Delivered by the INSEAD Global Leadership Centre, the Leadership Development Programme (LDP) combines a wide range of innovative learning methods designed to expand your range of effective leadership styles. With the support of a digital holding space, the LDP accompanies you on your lifelong development journey both during and after the GEMBA program.
You can think of the Leadership Development Programme (LDP) as a comprehensive ‘programme-within-a-programme’ that follows and shapes your personal as well as professional development, running throughout your time as a participant and beyond. The LDP is delivered by the INSEAD Global Leadership Centre and combines a wide range of innovative learning methods designed to further develop your authentic leadership style.
LDP Overview & Learning Methods
Various courses include some leadership content. The Organisational Behaviour core course begins and frames the process while elective options complement leadership development.
LDP teaching sessions address specific leadership topics, such as leadership styles, adaptive leadership and competing commitments.
GEMBA Leaders Forum
The EMBA Leaders Forum invites senior executives and CEOs to address the class and offer testimonies regarding their lives and leadership roles. The setting is informal with time for Q&A.
You will have the opportunity to form a Peer Learning relationship with another participant. This will enable you to learn from each other by sharing experiences, spending time discovering each other’s professional or entrepreneurial context, or joining your Learning Partner in other purposeful and enriching social or cultural activities.
Experiential teamwork training
You will participate in a day of outdoor activities that will provide you with insights into teamwork and opportunities for self-development.
Using 360° feedback instruments such as the Global Executive Leadership Inventory (GELI), a personality audit and personal and professional background questionnaire you will be able to increase your self-awareness and define a learning agenda for expanding your leadership repertoire.
Together with 4-5 of your EMBA peers, you will create a "learning community" whose members will support, encourage and challenge each other during the entire LDP journey. An experienced IGLC executive coach will facilitate the initial coaching day and will accompany you and your group at different stages of your development over the course of the LDP. There will also be opportunities for one-to-one interactions with your executive coach.
The Leadership Development Programme was probably the biggest surprise. By the end of the GEMBA, some of my colleagues and our coach knew me better than some members of my own family. We’re still supporting each other today and see each other whenever we can.

Doing the 360-degree feedback and exercises in such a fantastic and supportive group made all the difference to me. The Leadership Development Programme gave me a lot more confidence and new perspectives about my work and priorities.
