Mumbai: Harvard Business School (HBS) will host an executive education program Maximizing Your Leadership Potential—India, from December 4 to 7, 2013 at the HBS style classroom at Taj Lands’ End, Mumbai. This new program provides organizations the opportunity to invest in one of their most valuable resources – their talent. Why do some companies thrive and recover faster than their competitors during times of economic downturn—they continue to make smart investments in their critical assets, even while they are disciplined about cutting costs to gain operating efficiencies. The program is designed to allow participants to explore critical management challenges while gaining insight into their leadership style and approach.
“The constantly changing and increasingly complex nature of competition between global and local firms requires leaders who can build organizations with the capabilities to both execute and innovate. Maximizing Your Leadership Potential—India will help individuals enhance these capabilities by focusing on the three imperatives of leadership – managing yourself, managing your network, and managing your teams. One of our key program goals is to help participant expand their repertoire of leadership skills” said Linda A. Hill, the Wallace Brett Donham Professor of Business Administration and the faculty chair of Maximizing Your Leadership Potential—India. Named a top global management thinker by Thinkers50, Hill has explored the intersection of leadership and innovation through her best-selling book, Being the Boss and her forthcoming book, Collective Genius: The Art and Practice of Leading Innovation.
Designed for executives with at least 10 years of experience and significant management responsibilities, the program is appropriate for general managers and functional executives. A diverse mix of industries, sectors, countries, and cultures creates a dynamic exchange that draws on leadership experiences from across the globe.
“Maximizing Your Leadership Potential—India, is built around highly illustrative regional and global case studies. The curriculum will allow participants to better understand the distinctions between management and leadership, develop their emotional and contextual intelligence, and prepare for leading during turbulent times. Now more than ever, it is important for organizations to invest in their talent to ensure that managers are prepared to address ambiguity and leverage change,” said Anthony J. Mayo, Thomas S. Murphy Senior Lecturer of Business Administration, Director of the Leadership Initiative, and co-author (with Dean Nitin Nohria) of three books on great business leaders including, In Their Time: The Greatest Business Leaders of the 21st Century.
As with all HBS Executive Education programs, the India portfolio will be taught by members of the School’s own full-time faculty using the renowned HBS case method. Faculty lectures, discussions, assessments, and case studies will help participants acquire knowledge and skills needed to meet their corporate responsibilities.
