First week of Module 2: Test your idea in a strategy lab
On-campus combined with off-site workshops

Start your week with a leadership retreat in the Swiss Alps, to work on strengthening your executive presence as a senior leader.

Heading into the second module of the program you move from idea to reality: crystalizing, stress-testing, and gathering evidence for your solution. You will become astute — understanding the challenges that commonly trip up innovation and you will become savvy to reposition yourself and accordingly.

Through training in small groups with professional actors, you will master new ways to communicate your vision with passion and confidence. Peer coaching will bring about a deep change in the way you think, work and lead.

At the end of the module, you reconnect with your workplace to jump-start your new big idea.
