ELH Team

In my leadership journey from a PwC Advisory leader to Country Leader, CEE Regional CEO and Member of the Global Strategy Board, I learned and developed very much in action, relying heavily on myself as a resource. I would have welcomed the opportunity to attend a programme that would give me time for quality conversations and insights from other senior leaders and experienced knowledgeable Faculty to intentionally strengthen my skillset.  
The challenges I had to face, like dealing with increasing numbers of very diverse stakeholders, mobilising people that I didn’t meet personally to engage with and implement ideas and strategy, together with sheer physical exhaustion from travelling across different time zones, would have been easier to address had I  been better equipped. 
Therefore, I have put my energy into creating this opportunity so that other leaders having the similar challenges could be more ready and make more of a difference.

We created this special learning experience to help post-MBA leaders to further expand their leadership competencies. Using experiential learning methodologies, delivered by expert Faculty in a purpose designed facility, participants explore, practice and design their own responses to global challenges. Our aim was to create an environment in which we close the gap between knowing how to be a leader and being a leader.

DO YOU ASPIRE TO BE A
GLOBALLY MINDED LEADER?

Are you ’damn’ curious about what is going on – on the micro, macro and meta levels?
Are you ready to test and challenge your current beliefs and assumptions?
Do you have the courage to face complexity and turn this to opportunities and actions?
Do you really love people with all the diversity and chaos they bring to your teams and projects?
Do you understand your key stakeholders and how to navigate shared and conflicting goals?
Do you know how to engage with different generations of employees and clients?
Do you have mental toughness to handle fear of the unknown and stay resilient?
Do you know how to let go of the past and lead from what emerges in the moment?

These are just a few examples of questions the globally minded Leader should ask himself.

We will challenge and guide you to answer “Yes” to these questions with confidence!

ART AND SCIENCE

AS FACULTY, WE BELIEVE LEADERSHIP COMBINES BOTH ART AND SCIENCE.

 

We provide the SCIENCE including inspiration, tools and methodology to help you improve your impact as a leader. You bring ART which means your unique personality, skills, values and experiences.

 

We EXPERIMENT to discover how TO CLOSE THE GAP between KNOWING AND DOING: studying how to be a leader and acting as one.

 

In the self-directed and experiential learning environment you will be supported by a dedicated executive coach and be inspired by the Faculty, international experts as well as a diverse group of participants.

WHO IS OUR PROGRAM FOR?

This Programme is for Polish and international leaders at C level whose role involves leading complex teams because of size, variety of roles, importance to the future of the business or geographical spread.  It is a useful boost to post MBA learning, but is not required to complete an MBA to participate.
 
Because our Labs are designed to be experiential and reflective, they require participants to be highly curious and open to learn. Participants should be ready to step out of their comfort zone to explore new ways of thinking and acting, to look critically at existing practices and experiment with new approaches.
 
We have a selection process to ensure that each person will add value to the learning experience for the cohort as a whole.  This process includes a 1-1 conversation with one of our faculty to confirm your motivation, needs and expectations.
