Strategic Leadership in Global Context
Panel session in English
Leadership is a powerful force that can enable an organization and the individuals involved in it to reach their full capacity – or prevent them from doing so. And only rarely today will an organization be able to achieve its full potential in isolation from our strongly globalized world.

We will therefore be looking at how schools of management can best help their students to be prepared for providing the leadership needed today and in the future. This is no small task in a world where conflicts of interest between individuals, groups, countries and even us human beings and the natural world we live in, call for leaders prepared for decision-making and action in unchartered territory. What skills and personal traits should young leaders develop while studying? How can schools foster a sense of social responsibility in their students? How can a future leader best develop cultural insight and understanding and learn to balance these with the needs of his/her organisation?

Issues for discussion:
  • What skills and personal traits should young leaders develop while studying?
  • How can schools foster a sense of social responsibility in their students?
  • How can a future leader best develop cultural insight and understanding and learn to balance these with the needs of his/her organisation?
