In the 21st century successful leaders must be authentic leaders. In this program, developed by leadership visionary Bill George and HBS Dean Nitin Nohria, you will explore your values and passions to find your own True North—an inner compass to guide you when nothing else can—and lay a firm foundation for leadership that will inspire new levels of success.
Rather than offering leadership tools and tips, Authentic Leadership Development (ALD) focuses on your personal leadership development. HBS professors will guide you and a select group of executive business leaders through a profoundly personal exploration, during which you will design a leadership approach fully aligned with and driven by your most deeply held values. You will work closely with HBS top leadership experts and program participants in intimate settings.
ALD guides participants through HBS's highly successful 12-week MBA ALD course in just five days. The program prompts you to explore the qualities of authentic leaders as well as the deeply personal core of your own leadership. In addition to examining your life experiences and identifying the essence of your authentic leadership in guided exercises and case studies, you will have the opportunity to create your personal leadership development plan.
Authentic Leadership Development is designed for senior executives of large established organizations who represent diverse functions, industries, and countries. It is particularly appropriate for those who are looking to enhance their leadership ability and prepare to take on a larger role within their organization. Individuals or teams from the same organization are welcomed to attend.
