Introduction

This executive training program is a shared initiative between Vesalius College and the Club of Brussels (scrl. Otherways). It consists of an experiential action-based training for leaders to deal with the multiple historical challenges our current economy faces. Depletion and mismanagement of natural resources, climate change, talents, and a global pandemic are only a few examples that clearly demonstrate that our short-sighted economy is increasingly failing. As such, this training will support you in developing a different and encompassing strategic intelligence that will allow you to deal with all the complexities that a new approach to management requires.

We have to face over 25 historical challenges (ageing, environment, resources, recession, (re)education and an ageing pool of talents, technological developments, climate change, political instability, social unrest, …) in the near future. Most of these issues can not be dealt with with a singular focus, but require a “complexity” approach, targeting the overall underlying and surrounding broader ecosystem. As most of these challenges will converge before 2030, a focus on short-term emergencies will falter. Old methods and perceptions no longer provide the answers. Leaders have to get prepared for these multiple crisis management situations. In short, this training aims to provide you with the tools to face the most challenging times ahead of us, and to become a true “transition leader”.

This program is ideal for managers, entrepreneurs, leaders, political leaders and interim managers. It is run by experts and pioneering entrepreneurs, and allows the participants to project themselves in real-life situations. Through the focus on the Theory-guided, Practice-embedded and Experiential Learning (TPEL) pedagogy embedded in all aspects of this certificate programme, participants will further be able to apply the theory and practice to a real-life case of their own choice. This programme will familiarize you with a new approach to value creation which will drastically de-risk the next generation of business models, in a world where the old models have only proven to fail to address even a single challenge we currently face.

How does it work?

This certificate is a 6-weeks program followed by a formal evaluation.
The courses take place twice a week on
