Is your current leadership development practices and culture enabling business success and providing the type of environment that supports innovation? Organisation’s face multiple challenges, threats and opportunities – to cope, it is critical for Human Resources to manage talent, nurture and develop leadership capabilities and create a business culture that supports strategy execution.

CorporateLeaders in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership is hosting the ‘Leadership for Business Success’ series of Executive Briefings. Supported by recent research (interviews with CEOs across Western Europe), David Learmond, Senior Advisor Human Capital at The Conference Board will present the Top 5 Challenges CEOs are faced with today. Followed by a presentation from Jean-Michel Estrade, Senior Vice President Global Employee Services, Atos on how they are transforming their leadership development and how HR is supporting the CEO. The meeting also includes roundtable discussion leader Florence Plessier, Practice Leader, Organisational Leadership and Senior Team Development, at the Center for Creative Leadership.


During the second event of the series held across Europe, we will explore how the field of leadership development is emerging as a new agent through which to achieve sustainable organisational development. We will look at specific case-studies of multinationals who have started a journey to transform their Leadership Strategy to meet the challenging requirements of the business. Agenda topics include:

  • What are the key characteristics a leader must have in an increasingly VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, changing & ambiguous)
  • What challenges do CEO’s worry about the most and what strategies do they adopt to tackle them
  • What can we learn from ‘best in class’ companies for leadership development
  • How can companies transform their leadership culture to attain superior performance and innovation and how is HR supporting the CEO vision

This Executive Briefing is an intimate peer-to-peer roundtable discussion meeting for an intimate group of senior corporate executives to share knowledge and best practices, debate key development practices, and network with peers and leadership experts. The presentations and discussion will be followed by cocktail and an exquisite meal for networking and to carry on the debate.

"Every CEO wants fast, capable responses to the challenge of change. Faster, better, cheaper is not achievable without collective leadership capability to continuously reframe dilemmas, reinterpret options, and reform operations. The imperative is to collaborate and transform." "Developing leadership to the next level of maturity while implementing strategic imperatives is the glue of change."

McGuire & Rhodes, (2009)
