Event Details

Target Group
Programme Directors, Associate/Assistant Deans of Teaching & Learning, and Senior Program Managers with a complete overview of (though not necessarily direct responsibility for) the entire academic cycle: admissions, programme design & administration, career services, and alumni management.

For each stream intake, the Executive Academy also seeks to accept managers of corporate universities or executives of corporate talent management departments to cross-fertilize group learning. Corporate participants can improve their understanding of and their ability to interact with business schools.

Context
Executive Academy journey starts with a preparatory phase, which includes self-study and a comprehensive 360° feedback exercise administered with the support of the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL).

The core of the Executive Academy is a face-to-face week in the selected region, with the maximum of 20 participants admitted to each stream.

Participants will:

  • Advance through a self-discovery process to better understand their strengths and limitations, which will contribute to the bridging of self-knowledge and self-leadership.
  • Learn how to drive a strategy-driven programme design and review process, how to manage different performance layers and how to interlink stakeholder expectations and satisfaction.
  • Understand and implement disruptive strategies in business education and map performance metrics to actions and milestones.

The face-to-face week will be followed by a project phase at the participants’ home institutions with support and feedback provided by faculty facilitators and personal coaches.

A rigorous and challenging admission process ensures that peer-to-peer interaction in the Executive Academy will be meaningful and ability-enhancing for all participants.

Application process:

  • 1. Please, fill in the application form and send it to exec.academy@efmdglobal.org.
  • 2. Your application will be reviewed by EA Director.
  • 3. You will be interviewed in a 30-minute call with the Programme Stream Leader.
  • 4. Upon completion of the steps above, the EA Director will submit the recommendation for your admission to a Steering Committee which approves participant’s enrolment

Pre-programme materials: All readings, including CCL 360 Assessments, will be made available the week of April 8, 2019

Self-Knowledge
This session facilitates self-knowledge through the interpretation of the KLIO-CS cognitive-style questionnaire. This test also allows participants to gain insight into their “brain- dominance”, which determines the way information is processed and related to others, as well as how decisions are made. This is a necessary basis for situational leadership and adapting one’s style and communication to different stakeholders.

  • Steven Poelmans, Leadership professor at EADA, Spain and Antwerp Management School, Belgium

This session includes half-hour coffee break

16:00 – 18:00

Self-Leadership – The Brain Balance
Participants focus on the skills of managing stress and harmonizing work, family and personal life. The “BrainBalance” is introduced as a model for taking care of one’s mental and physical energy and thereby increasing focus, efficiency and health. Participants diagnose their sources of stress and related responses while learning emotional regulation techniques for managing stress during peak periods.

Bridging Self-Leadership and Leadership – Competencies
In this session participants are familiarised with the concept of competency development. Based on the 360 Feedback exercise administered before the program, participants identify key development areas and begin coaching sessions and feed-forward techniques to address these areas.

Feedback and Coaching
As academics and professionals move up the hierarchy or broaden their scope of responsibility, they have to increasingly shift their focus from the expert / technical / content role to a leadership / social-political / process role in order to gain support from a broad range of stakeholders. This session focuses on critical competencies needed for leadership, feedback and coaching. These competencies are spelled out and practiced with a case.

Paradoxes of Leadership

In this session we introduce the challenges and types of leadership paradoxes managers face in contemporary organizations. Here the focus is on developing mental flexibility and emotional intelligence, in order to thrive in complexity, balancing seemingly opposite demands. Drawing on the neuroscience-based SCARF model, in this session participants develop ways of anticipating and dealing with resistance in others. The session outcomes are behavioural scripts for managing paradoxes and aligning the expectations and actions of clients, students, faculty and administrative staff.
