What movies did for leadership development at Rabobank

Watching a movie is usually something fun to do in your leisure time. But did you know that movies can also help you to become a better leader? Movie learning is a new and narrative way of improving social and visionary leadership skills. The methodology used in this learning format is based on a selection of inspiring movie clips and stories in which various leadership practices are shown. Movie learning is a community-based learning process, allowing participants to connect with fellow learning companions and give them the incentive to adopt new leadership practices.

This highly innovative learning approach has been introduced in the learning journey that we have newly developed for Rabobank. It has proven to be very effective in giving the participants the opportunity to reflect on their personal leadership challenges through dialogue and sharing experiences, resulting enhanced leadership skills and fresh ideas on how to lead.

Instead of presenting a vision for all members of the organisation to pursue, the CEO needs to encourage collaboration and create relationships of trust.’
