"I was motivated to join the Adaptive Leadership course at IHEID because it is uniquely geared toward development professionals, and not just business persons as most other executive courses are, while at the same time promising diverse perspectives from multiple sectors.
During the course we were challenged to think, reflect and solve on the edge: for unpredictable futures, complex systems that only got more complex as you dug deeper, and most importantly, within ourselves.
I would call those five days expansive. I came into the programme hoping to better shape myself to the kind of leader I ought to be, and came away with the higher and more purposeful realisation of the kind of leader I want to be."
