About the programme

Empower your teams, drive innovation

Humans are the lifeblood of every thriving organisation. Effective leaders empower their teams to unleash their full potential, fostering heightened engagement, productivity, and innovation. Our programme delves into the practical aspects, challenges, and real-world experiences of participants to equip them with the knowledge and skills essential for success as a people leader.

Practice-oriented and real-world based.

Organised in small groups of up to 16 people, this short programme is highly practical and interactive, focusing on the real-life experiences of participants who acquire the necessary frameworks to formalise their approach to people management.

Personal development through self-reflection and peer-to-peer coaching.

The programme offers a personal development plan, helping leaders understand, develop and adjust their posture in their three roles. By doing so, our participants increase their impact on their team, and through them on their results and organisation.

An opportunity to strengthen your network.
The programme emphasises interaction among participants and with trainers. This enables participants to enrich their own vision, exchange with specialists and other business leaders, and to expand their network.

Your Learning Path

The programme consists of 3 sprints of 3 weeks and a closing session. In each sprint, participants will go through the following steps:

  1. Theoretical concepts. Video clips and readings will allow participants to familiarise themselves with the concepts and frameworks used prior to the face-to-face sessions;
  2. Exercises and practice during the days in the classroom;
  3. Online collective supervision of your on-the-job practice;
  4. Personal development through self-reflection and peer-to-peer coaching.

What our participants say

Lionel Dieu
Fund Manager
EDFI Management Company

I‘ve picked the programme in People Leadership to have a little bit more of a theoretical background and to get the keys and concepts on how to lead, motivate and coach colleagues and people who are part of my team so we can reach common goals together. 

Claire Bernard
Head of Talent Acquisition

What I found super interesting in the People Leadership Programme is that it's a perfectly balanced mix between theory and concepts and also practical cases and knowledge and experience sharing. I, of course, like, the fact that both trainers come from the private/public world, which makes it for me more interesting and relevant. Also, the rhythm of the education is adapted to professional life.
