Back2Better Webinar: The Leadership Core with Gianpiero Petriglieri

Gianpiero Petriglieri

How can you remain grounded in your intent, open to learning, and available to others in times of strain and change? How do you cultivate integrity, commitment, and outstanding performance? How do you balance delivering quarterly results and developing for the long term? And how can you ensure that your work and private lives enrich rather than deplete each other? These questions are always pertinent to leaders across sectors, but in times of crisis they become more pressing.

Crises reveal the core of leadership.

In this interactive session, INSEAD professor Gianpiero Petriglieri, an expert on leadership and learning in the workplace, will help you consider

  • what the core of leadership is made of
  • why many leadership practices are counterproductive
  • how to develop a core that gives you strength, stability, and flexibility as a leader

Ultimately, a strong leadership core will help you hold yourself and your team together, and sustain performance, even when everything around you seems to be falling apart.

A medical doctor and psychiatrist by training, Professor Petriglieri has been studying leadership, and working with leaders across the world for two decades. His award-winning writing and teaching focus on what it means and what it takes to become a leader in a world in constant flux. At INSEAD, he directs the Management Acceleration Programme, the school’s flagship programme for emerging leaders, and he also designs and directs experiential leadership development workshops for multinational organizations.
