Unique Senior Leadership Development Programme – The Explorer Mindset

Start date: 26/11/2017 - 30/11/2017

Picture from the Explorer Mindset

Uncharted business territory requires new navigation skills. Successful business leaders and entrepreneurs view the fast-changing landscape with excitement. Where others see disruptive threats and challenges you see opportunities.

What is The Explorer Mindset?

The Explorer Mindset is a new senior leadership development programme for the 21st Century. An immersive residential course – uniquely structured to fit around management work commitments – created by Møller Executive Education at the University of Cambridge.

Senior management, C-suite, partners and founders are operating in the most complex, competitive and unpredictable environment since the introduction of the printing press in c1439. Continuous disruption is the norm, information no longer provides strategic advantage, and agility is fast replacing every other parameter of business success.

You know the world is changing. You know a new leadership mindset is needed to navigate these turbulent times. This is your time.

The Explorer Mindset Programme – framed around the five dominant forces re-shaping our world – is designed to equip you with the cognitive, emotional and behavioural resources to confidently lead your organisation at this critical point in history.

Unfortunately, too many executives underestimate the risk of their leadership capabilities not keeping pace with these seismic shifts, a 2017 report by Deloitte found*. Its survey of 800 global business executives found 90% are redesigning their organisations to be more dynamic and agile, yet they underestimate the crucial demand for “a completely different type of leader”.

Do You Have an Explorer Mindset?

Explorers share a natural curiosity, resilience, determination, focus, preparedness, entrepreneurial risk appetite and sense of higher purpose that often means they achieve highly in leadership positions.

The following five dominant forces, which are challenging ambitious leaders at personal, team and organisational levels, will be interwoven in The Explorer Mindset programme:

  1. Globalisation implications
  2. Socially created information
  3. Nationalism’s resurgence
  4. Digital technologies
  5. Millennial demographics

While these factors pose threats and opportunities for all organisation leaders, The Explorer Mindset senior leadership development programme is particularly useful for those experiencing an inflection point. This may be personal – transitioning to or between new roles, for example – or organisational – priming for funding rounds, IPO or sale of a business. At such inflection points, the benefit of taking on new skills, knowledge and ideas to continue progressing is magnified.
