    Going Beyond Traditional Leadership

    Being a trailblazer now requires a new skillset. You’ll learn how to work across all types of boundaries, enabled by digital age tools. As you develop a personal development plan, you’ll pinpoint ways to bolster your own success.

    Long-Lasting Digital Impact

    Build the expertise you need to stand out today—and long into the future. Your in-demand knowledge and skills will help you fearlessly lead any organization through continuous change. Onsite dynamic learning mixed with self-paced pre-work and post-course coaching add immediate and lasting value to you and your organization.

    Learning From Digital Frontrunners

    The world-renowned faculty and industry leaders who transform how companies compete in the digital age are ready to share their insight and expertise with you. The community you gain during these two days will support your growth for years to come



      1. Leading Beyond the Edge. Digital Age tools enable you to lead beyond your unit, organization, and geography, to provide innovative solutions to customers and other stakeholders.

      2. Building Deep Trust Relationships. In the Digital Age, trust replaces formal authority as the basis for leadership.

      3. Forming and Leading Virtual Teams. By recognizing that the Digital Age relentlessly shrinks time and space, virtual teams – when properly formed and led – turn this compression into an advantage over traditional teams.

      4. Collaborating and Co-Creating the Future. Multi-organizational value networks, formed from a portfolio of relationships with customers and stakeholders, are replacing traditional, single-company-owned, linear value chains. This new business model requires leaders to adopt a “co-creation mindset.”

      5. Learning Dynamically. The only sustainable competitive advantage in the Digital Age is the capability to learn, adapt, implement, and learn as you go, faster and better than your competitors.
