About the course

Over this extremely intensive four-day programme, executives will explore the latest ideas in high-performance and sustainable leadership. The focus is on organisation-wide and strategic-level leadership, and on enabling participants to develop plans for change within their own enterprises. A variety of teaching techniques are used, including plenary lectures and discussion sessions, workshops, and planning exercises. Plenary lecture/discussion sessions provide participants with valuable frameworks for understanding leadership issues at different levels, and are designed to be relevant to participants’ own experiences and issues that they face. A wealth of real-world cases drawn from a variety of industries enliven the conceptual points and make them vivid and memorable.

During workshops, small groups of participants typically examine specific leadership issues based on past international case studies. During planning exercises, participants work together in teams as they analyse specific leadership issues. Participants often use these different class sessions to develop their own leadership strategies, drawing on the expertise of other executives in the programme.

The full fee must be paid no later than 30 days before the start of the programme. Applications made within 30 days of the start of a programme require immediate payment. Any successful applicant for programmes offered by CEIBS Executive Education Department via the official website will be entitled to a 1,000-yuan discount per programme.
