About the course
Module 5 is designed to help PLDers frame and address the unique challenges they face in helping the company build the capacity to achieve and sustain organizational success. By identifying the experiences and passions that inform your leadership, you will learn how to inspire through example and empower your team members to lead more effectively.
The most successful executives never stop learning. Harvard Business School (HBS) enables past participants of the Program for Leadership Development (PLD) to continue their learning experience with a special two-week session that grants HBS alumni status.
By advancing your decision-making, execution, and leadership abilities, PLD Module 5 helps you become an authentic leader who empowers others, lead capably even when confronted with complex and contradictory demands, and generate more value for your business and society.
Through dynamic case studies, small group discussions, and leadership exercises, you will reassess your personal goals, determine your leadership blind spots, and apply different leadership styles to different scenarios. You will emerge from Module 5 with a personal action plan for accelerating your career and sustaining your company's success.
Module 5 is designed for PLD past participants who may be current or future general managers, consult for or invest in operating companies, and represent diverse disciplines, industries, and specializations. Even if you have moved into a different position or organization, Module 5 will contribute to both your leadership development and your company's overall growth. In the spirit of growing our alumni community, we would be delighted to see all PLD classes represented.
Key elements of this module include:
The best leaders are authentic leaders—people whose inner compass guides their daily actions and enables them to earn the trust of their subordinates, peers, and shareholders. By determining what qualities define an outstanding leader who empowers others, you will develop greater self-confidence and emotional intelligence—the two keys to becoming a successful and authentic leader.
Senior leaders are confronted with complex and often contradictory demands from a range of stakeholders—customers, employees, investors, and governments. While assessing your responsibilities as a decision maker, you will establish guidelines for making decisions that support your organization's financial needs, legal requirements, and ethical obligations.
Facing heightened competition and transparency, executives are expected to consider the impact of every decision on their organization and their community. Examining innovative ways to create greater value, you will explore your personal role—and your company's organizational role—in generating more value for the business and for society.
