While it is critical for organisations and individuals to stay ahead of emerging trends and adapt quickly to disruption, there is a risk of teams and organisations becoming distracted by the constant change. In times like these, it becomes especially important for leaders to draw upon their capability of defining purpose and providing guidance and direction for their teams to thrive in the ever-changing digital age.
This is why the University of Zurich Executive MBA has incorporated a robust and transformative leadership journey that spans the length of your Executive MBA.
Beginning in the very first module, you will define your leadership purpose. Under careful guidance, you will examine critical aspects of your professional journey so far to determine what drives your desire to lead. Drawing from the collective experiences of your class, you will identify behaviours that are the trademark of effective leadership and analyse those that are counterproductive. You will also undertake a series of exercises to uncover how you can channel your EQ to fulfil your leadership potential.
You will combine this knowledge to think about how you can create environments for your teams to perform at their best, and leave with a personalised action plan that provides you with a snapshot of your current leadership style, your desired end state and a four-week and six-month plan to close the gap.
Therefore, this course not only delivers evidence-based frameworks drawn from the forefront of cutting-edge research, it is also carefully delivered to ensure you have sufficient opportunity to understand, apply and practice these concepts so you can act decisively when your leadership moment arrives.
As you move through the program, you will test your new knowledge back at work and bring the learnings from your experiences back into the classroom.
Midway through the program, you will expand your focus from introspective leadership to organisational leadership. Building upon your work on self-awareness and emotional intelligence, you will analyse and develop strategies to influence and motivate teams, lead across differences to unlock the power of diversity and shape the organisational culture needed to embrace digital innovation.
Finally, at the end of your transformative experience through the Zurich Executive MBA, you will define your leadership legacy. In a constantly changing world, what lasting impact will you leave at the end of your career?
