  2. Adaptive leadership

    Adaptive leadership: the answer to shape your path through turbulence

    Senior managers expect more strategic leadership and process leadership from middle managers to be able to maintain and enhance performance amidst rapid, frequent and unpredictable change. That is the conclusion of professors Katleen De Stobbeleir, Carine Peeters and Steve Muylle, together with researcher Matthias Pfisterer based on recent research about leadership behaviours that contribute to organisations’ adaptiveness. The study was conducted within the Centre for Excellence in Leading Adaptive Organisations.

  3. Two Enablers of Leadership

    Great leaders nurture the strengths and talents of their staff and build teams committed to achieving goals. But what does it take for a leader to guide his or her team towards greatness?

  4. How Industry 4.0 will change the way you do business

    Running your company the smart way

    Everyone is talking about Industry 4.0 – from the Internet of Things, additive manufacturing and the cloud through to artificial intelligence, augmented reality and blockchain. But what does it all mean in practice? It’s not a question of if Industry 4.0 will drastically change the way we do business. It’s a question of when and how quickly. So how can you apply this technology in your business – not just to improve production and performance, but to make a difference for customers?

  5. Inclusion and diversity at work

    Inclusion? A matter of common sense!

    The war for talent is raging, yet lots of talent remains unused. Women are still underrepresented in STEM sectors, 1 out of 10 LGBT+ people feel discriminated against when looking for a job or in the workplace, for trans people this figure is 1 out of 3, and almost 11% of trans people are unemployed. What can we do to improve the inclusion of these target groups? That was the focus of a joint research project carried out by Vlerick and KliQ vzw.

  6. Digital Transformation Leaders Game

    You can't lead a digital transformation alone

    The success of your digital transformation depends on the agility of your organisation. You need to constantly evaluate opportunities and take action, preferably faster than your competitors. This is where the leadership challenges lie. Together with his team, Professor Stijn Viaene has developed a leadership model and a game, the Digital Transformation Leaders Game. This is a light-hearted way of gaining insights into the different types of leadership which contribute to the success of your digital transformation.

  7. How do you ensure a successful diversity policy?

    Diversity in the workplace goes far beyond ethnic, cultural or religious differences – and research shows it can lead to better performance and greater creativity. But organisations don’t always implement diversity policies effectively – partly because there are misconceptions about the role managers play. So Professor Katleen De Stobbeleir has developed a theoretical framework to chart the impact managers have on how successful a diversity policy is.

  8. The Agile Leader's Scrapbook

    Write your own agile story

    How do you become an agile leader - really? “You need to develop an ‘and-and’ mindset, because right from the start you are confronted with a double challenge: identify and build on everything that is relatively immune to the impact of volatility in your operating environment, while simultaneously experimenting with new systems, ideas, products and processes wherever possible.” With this scrapbook, Professor Herman Van den Broeck and Professor Barney Jordaan want to help leaders find a “sweet spot” – not necessarily a perfect balance – between stability and agility, between roots and wings, or what they term “rooting” and “soaring”.

  9. From egocentric to ecocentric leadership

    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.
