About the course

As a future C-level manager, you rely on your extensive experience, proven impact and a specific set of skills. You know that different times and different circumstances call for different approaches. But when it comes to managing your own career, how do you prepare yourself to move up? What abilities and skills should you hone as you strive to reach the next level?

Through the Master Class Business Strategy & Leadership, we will gear you up for future challenges with advanced strategic, digital and leadership skills. The combination of these three components already make for a unique Master Class. On top of that, you also get to unlock your full potential in our exclusive NeuroTrainingLab™.

Advanced strategic, digital and leadership skills Our faculty in Business Strategy & Leadership takes you through the entire process of formulating and implementing a strategy that leads your organization to success. This is a continuous process, based on 3 equally important pillars:

  • formulate and execute your strategy
  • by using / implementing the right technology and processes
  • and capture the ‘human’ challenges associated with transformation.

This structure allows us to take things a step further than classic strategy programs. You will not only receive the necessary know-how, tips and tricks to strengthen your strategy, you will also go through a personal development trajectory that will not only reinforce you as a manager, but your entire management team and / or organization as well.

Extra bonus: you will be a front-runner when it comes to discovering the power of the neuroscience technique, through the integration of leadership sessions in the only NeuroTrainingLab™ in Belgium.

Curriculum

This Master Class is based on three pillars. You can choose to register 1, 2 or 3 modules, with or without the leadership track.

Module 1: strategic management

Leaders provide strategic direction and are capable of mobilizing others to collaborate and share their dreams. In this module you learn both how to deal with a turbulent environment and how to balance tensions and paradoxes. This module is composed of two parts.

In the first part, Strategy Formulation, we introduce the right tools and techniques to formulate a breakthrough strategy. Classic frameworks such as environmental scanning are complemented with the Jobs-to-be-Done Theory enabling the search for competitive advantage. Based on seven tests, we offer you some rules of thumb to improve the effectiveness of your strategy.

A strategy cannot be realized without a clear, explicit and widely supported Strategy Execution process. That is the topic of the second part of this module. We share proven methods to ensure strategy execution becomes an integral part of your day-to-day operation. We challenge you to achieve an execution premium that expresses the added value and impact of a disciplined strategy process.

After this module you can:

  • translate the complexity of your environment into a clear outline for strategy;
  • make the why, what and how explicit with a clear and robust mission, vision and strategy;
  • set to work with innovative strategy frameworks;
  • transform your strategic goals into a set of KPIs and use them in a motivatingmanner;
  • embed and optimize your strategy execution processes.

Module 2: digital transformation

Digitization is growing at a fast pace and will thoroughly transform the landscape in the following years. The battle for consumer attention will get more fierce, both in B2B and B2C. Who initially thought that digitization was just a hype or a trend, knows better now. Organizations will have to invest in business and IT innovation projects to be able to extract value from digital transformation. We provide you with a governance method for managing a digital project portfolio.

In this module you will also learn how to turn innovative business ideas into action. We give you insight into the Belgian tech market and benchmark it with strong international players. We study the business models of innovative scaleups and we identify tactics to outperform the competition. Finally, we demystify blockchain technology and explore multiple applications.

After this module you can:

  • identify technology trends that may disrupt your business model;
  • enable your processes, products & services and business models by smartly adopting a digital strategy;
  • identify whether you have the necessary competences to enable digital transformation;
  • allocate scarce resources wisely to a portfolio of business and ICT initiatives.

Module 3: strategic leadership & high performing teams

The ultimate goal of this module is to prepare you for the ‘human’ challenges associated with managing strategic transformation in your organization. This includes: understanding human behavior and motivation in the workplace, creating a sense of mission and purpose, self-leadership, gaining trust and commitment, executive communication and developing talent.

The first step is to create a solid base for your development as a professional and as a leader. Based on generated self-knowledge, you will discover your basic style that represents your strenght and potential biases and blind spots at the same time. You will learn how to reach your full potential. Via a 360° feedback exercise, you will receive feedback on a range of management competencies from collaborators, management team members and stakeholders.

Next, to integrate the changes within your organization, your management team members / colleagues will be invited to reflect on their team roles and levels of homogeneity versus heterogeneity. The team will receive feedback on its potential blind spots. They will learn how to build trust and protect themselves from the negative effects of groupthinking.

After this module you can:

  • Develop and affect cognitive styles and motives to lead organizational change;
  • Integrate skills of self-leadership and gain fundamental knowledge about one´s own sense of purpose, vision, and leadership;
  • Learn how to develop effective interpersonal relationships in the workplace, and especially how to develop high performance management teams;
  • Learn how to lead organizations and implement strategic change;
  • Know the difference between being a good manager or executive and an inspirational leader.
