Olivia Adins - Transuniverse Group
Director

“Thanks to the Leadership Transition Programme, I received input to my own (as well as my company’s) action plan, and I now have more clarity and structure in what I do. In this dramatically changing world – in which employee involvement and personal development can make the difference versus the competition – the people manager is becoming increasingly important. In addition to theoretical information, this programme provided easily recognisable case studies and practical exercises to work on, as well as the opportunity to share experiences and tips with fellow participants.”

Roger Langhout - Marriot Hotels
General Manager

“The Leadership Transition Programme has meant a lot to me. I was stuck in structures that I had acquired over the years. I've been in a leadership role for 15 years now, and I needed to progress − and this programme has helped me do that.

It’s a high-level programme, with outstanding professors who provide you with new knowledge that you can put directly into practice. Interaction with the other participants is extremely valuable: you get the chance to test out solutions on like-minded colleagues, which means that you can return to the workplace with more confidence and apply what you’ve learned immediately.

I have learned important new approaches, especially in terms of managing employees and recognising and appreciating the variety of leadership roles in the organisation. I’m now implementing these things, and I notice that they are already beginning to bear fruit. I’m still in touch with a number of participants − Vlerick also provides an environment in which you can expand your network in a meaningful way.”

“The Leadership Transition Programme helped me gain more insight into my own leadership skills and to apply them more effectively in practice. After the programme, I was able to successfully lead my organisation through a period of great change and to guide members of my management team in their growth.”

Vlerick expertise in People Management & Leadership

  1. Why acknowledging our emotions helps us to reap the benefits of diversity

    We’re living in an increasingly multicultural society, but people still tend to seek out the company of similar others, resulting in de facto segregated monocultural groups in which stereotypes about the other remain unchallenged. Research suggests that this is linked to emotion management, or lack thereof. Together with two colleagues, professor Smaranda Boros examined the role of emotion management in a professional multicultural setting, and its implications.
  2. What is the CEO disease?

    In this "What is" video, Vlerick Professor Katleen De Stobbeleir explains what the CEO disease is.
