Learning Model

360° feedback and coaching: a personalized approach to leadership challenges

Participants will have the opportunity to fill out the SDA Bocconi Responsible Leadership questionnaire and involve others to observe their leadership behaviors (supervisors, peers, direct reports). On the basis of the responses, each participant will receive a personalized report aimed at outlining the leadership strengths and improvement areas. Participants will have the opportunity to meet a SDA Bocconi coach in order to develop an individualized action plan to better tackle their personal leadership challenges.

John Red Simulation: an action-learning perspective to leadership

JR is a web-based simulation which challenges participants in leading their teams in the process of developing and launching a new product. The simulation unfolds along different rounds and participants have to collectively discuss which kind of actions to undertake in order to keep a diverse team motivated while maintaining focus on the task accomplishment. The simulation “reacts” on the basis of participant choices offering an opportunity to learn based on interaction and discussion in a dynamically changing environment.


The course aims at developing global leadership skills by embracing different topics:

  • • The role of the global leader: how to combine a global perspective with local challenges and needs
  • • Leveraging on diversity: how to engage and motivate people to tackle the global challenge
  • • Influencing with impact: how to take advantage of your network and to influence stakeholders and organizational actors
  • • Developing resilience: how to deal with pressure and stressful situations leveraging on mindfulness and positive psychology.
