What skills to develop to best hold your role as a manager or leader? What tools to rely on? What subjects to put into practice?
Negotiate while protecting the relationship over time
A successful negotiation is foremost one that leads to implementing an acceptable agreement for each of the parties involved. How can you pursue your interests whilst protecting a constructive relationship with the other party?
Seeking inspiration from stoicism to manage stress
How can you remain clam when the situation becomes tense and escapes your control? In the turbulent environments of today, the precepts of stoicism are more topical than ever.
Facilitating open expression in the company
Knowing how to speak honestly to one another is absolutely critical inside a company. Yet, many reasons push us, on the contrary, to hold our tongue. How can we set up the necessary conditions to enable free expression?
Deciding while under pressure
When we make decisions, we are inevitably subjected to biases—that are all the more powerful when we are under pressure and the challenge is at its highest. How can you nonetheless secure the vital strategic decisions?
Sharpen your attention focus
Our work environments do not lend themselves easily to concentration. At the time and age of collaborative spaces and new technologies, how can you stay in control of your attention focus and maintain your personal productivity?
Sharpen your sense of politics
We often consider only the downsides of the corporate political game. In reality, it constitutes a dimension that any business leader should master to increase his/her influence and ability to take action. How can you develop this essential leadership lever?
Selling your innovative ideas
Any innovative project owner faces a paradox: the novelty nature of his/her idea is precisely what gives it value; yet, it is also what generates reluctance. How can you release these brakes to get your innovative ideas across better?
Get back into the habit of asking questions
Business leaders are rarely represented as people who question themselves. Yet, managers should be equally able to question as they are to affirm; but it seems this capability has somewhat been lost. How to get it back?
Conflict: inevitable yet useful
Conflicts are inevitable in a company. They even have their usefulness by allowing us to uncover the diversity of outlooks and to manage dilemmas. How can we channel these conflicts towards a productive outcome?
Reaching an executive management position
Becoming a senior executive does not only involve taking on extended responsibilities: the conditions of success are often different from what we expected. How can you best prepare for these new demands?
