"Leadership is a conversation and by truly listening and going through the change process rigorously you will have the greatest chance of successfully leading change. All of us – the professors and students – made sure we fostered a safe environment in which we could dig deep, learn, and grow together. After each module I left invigorated and confident with what I had learned and experienced.”
“A great learning experience! The programme combined new theoretical support and tools with discussions with like-minded professionals. I liked the different approaches within each module, the varied faculty and the focus on three core areas: leadership, finance and strategy. The modular flexibility suited me and it was good to network. Also, RSM’s reputation is appealing and delivered its promise. I’m certain that this will help me in my current role and support my development in the future.”
“I learned to listen to my peers and interact with them more strongly than I had before. Understanding this leverage has increased the possibilities of developing my organisation further – and in a smarter way – than in the past. Understanding my impact, my power to influence, and the way I behave to consciously drive human developments and corporate developments is the biggest insight from the programme. I use this at work every day."
“As a first-time manager I wanted to learn how to create a strong and efficient team, and empower team members to grow, develop themselves and work confidently. RSM really exceeded my expectations. The professors did a really good job balancing theory with practice, and I learned a lot from the other participants’ diverse experiences and backgrounds.”
