WEBINAR: Leading at the Edge: Overview
Please join us on September 9, 2020, for this special overview webinar about our upcoming Leading at the Edge programme.
About the Webinar
Why do some leaders overcome impossible barriers, go beyond unbearable pressure and frustration, and persevere in order to achieve outcomes seemingly beyond reach when others would give up? The answer to that question has never been more clear: Leaders at the edge can unlock the highest levels of performance from themselves and others.
Building on CEIBS’ renowned leadership programme conducted in Shanghai and drawing on the latest research into high performance in sports, business, medicine, hostage negotiation, multicultural teams, and women’s leadership, our Leading at the Edge programme can help participants to turn knowledge into practice and better lead ourselves and others.
During this open overview webinar, participants will get an introduction to our 5-day Leading at the Edge programme and have the chance to ask our experts any questions about the programme.
