Advanced Leadership Skills Are Needed to Manage Change

Success depends on effective leadership and builds on individual talent wired to improve, enhance, and add value to a company’s activities. Executives face challenges and opportunities that extend beyond their own organization, across industries, and around the world. They require a strategic perspective and a global vision of what is possible. Aalto EE helps executives set a strategic direction for the future and strengthen their ability to lead and implement strategy in a global context. Our leadership, strategy, and advanced management programs are built to challenge your current perceptions and values relating to leadership while encouraging you to think and lead differently. We develop new mindsets and skills and prepare leaders for more senior positions and broader leadership roles.

Our world is changing at a faster pace than ever. Companies that can transform and adapt to our rapidly changing world will not only survive but also thrive in the competitive market. This calls for exceptional leadership.

The path to great leadership starts from within."

The path to great leadership starts from within. To succeed, leaders must gain a better understanding of their own approach to leadership and acquire new ideas in order to optimize and sustain their potential. The most effective leaders treat change as an opportunity to learn and grow as individuals, teams, and organizations. They handle both the structural side of change and the human side of leading transition effectively. They realize that new mindsets and skills may be required to create a successful future and that they may need to let go of practices that no longer serve their purpose.

Leading Change and Managing Transition

Exceptional leadership requires an understanding of the difference between change and transition and what it takes to maintain a balance between these from a leadership perspective. Successful leaders must recognize their individual and behavioral leadership styles and preferences regarding change and how these preferences influence their response to change. They must know how to lead more effectively and coach both themselves and others through the change process. They also need concrete tools for leading organizational change in the workplace.

Strategy Is about Building the Future of Your Company

Strategy is not only about setting goals. It is about solving problems, choosing and building your own competitive space, and developing skills and competencies that are hard to copy. It is about identifying a path toward success in an ever-changing environment of global competition and successfully pursuing that path. Strategy is about building the future of your company.

Strategy is a unique topic in management, as it cuts across all specializations, from finance and marketing to leadership and innovation. Strategic management deals with three interrelated elements: leadership and people, competition and the business environment, and organization and capabilities. Strategic management requires the analysis of each of these domain areas, the formulation of a strategy applicable to the situation in all three domains, and coherent implementation efforts that connect to and shape all three areas.

Digitalization and Globalization as Overarching Megatrends

Digitalization continues to be an overarching megatrend driving strategic change in several industries. It is shaping competition and setting new skill requirements for individuals, leadership, and management practice. It also has an impact on the design of organizations.

Another factor driving strategic change is the ongoing globalization of business. Organizational decision-makers need an international mindset to negotiate in the turbulent global environments they face. Internationalization is creating a need for agile responses to technological developments and new business models, the striking of a balance between local adaptation and global standardization, and the grasping of the new opportunities brought by a broader range of customers and innovative new ideas in the global marketplace.
