Vlerick expertise in People Management & Leadership

  1. Farewell, omniscient leader - from egocentric to ecocentric

    A leader is charismatic and visionary: this CEO cult no longer fits in with today’s complex dynamics. Research has shown that modern leaders are successful if they adopt modest, vulnerable attitudes, asking people around them for feedback to achieve widespread support.
  2. Six Batteries of Change

    In today’s fast-paced, uncertain world, organisations need to adapt quickly to survive. But change doesn’t always happen easily. And many change programmes don’t deliver the expected results. There are various models that set out a process or series of steps to follow to achieve successful change. But change is increasingly continuous – and in today’s change programmes, it’s hard to identify a start and end point. Which means seeing change as a purely top-down, sequential process can be dangerous. This is why we’ve taken a different approach. The starting point of our change model is that effective change is all about managing energy. Each organisation has a level of energy – and when you generate enough energy, you can use it to make lasting change happen. But if your energy reserves are running low, your change efforts will quickly fizzle out.
