About the course
In this programme, we put the question of how managers can lead employees in times of change for maximal commitment and motivation centre-stage.
In times of crisis such as COVID-19, or rapidly changing business contexts, change is inevitable, and managers depend more than ever on their subordinates to get results.
Employees may thus represent both a key resource and a liability for managerial success. Tapping the full potential of employees, however, may require leadership and people management skills that stretch beyond ordinary managerial competences.
Grounded in rigorous, cutting-edge research, the programme aims to provide you with inspiration, hands-on tools, and knowledge that may enhance your emotional and leadership skills for managerial results.
- Inspire and motivate your employees under adversarial conditions
- Flexibly adapt your leadership style to meet the needs of your employees
- Effectively promote change in your organisation, and breach resistance
- Persuade your peers and get their buy-in to a new business idea they might find little appealing
- Create a culture in your teams where employees see failure as a learning opportunity.
The Live Online format of this programme provides the same, high-quality learning experience you can expect from Cambridge, where you will benefit from face-to-face interactions and discussions with your fellow participants and our world-class faculty.
