Instructor: Valerie Gauthier
Credentials: Gauthier is an associate professor at HEC Paris. A graduate of the Stanford Graduate Business School’s executive program who also holds a Ph.D, in comparative literature, Gauthier’s research focuses on leadership, business communication, cross-cultural management, and intuitive intelligence. She is the author of Leading With Sense: The Intuitive Power of Savoir-Relier, which was published in 2014 by Stanford University Press.
Description: Leadership – You know it when you see it, right? Is it charisma, vision, toughness, or know-how? Is it the ability to chart a direction and convince people to enthusiastically follow? In this course – the third in a series from HEC Paris – students will apply the self-awareness, communication, and problem-solving techniques learned in the previous two courses. In particular, according to Gauthier, they will “apply the 4 steps of The Savoir-Relier protocol to your group: 1. defining the group identity by working on the group self-awareness, 2. creating quality relationships within the group, 3. working on resilience for the group to then be able to overcome difficult situation and 4. Making the organization grow by creating sense and meaning.”
A hands on, case-driven course, Leading Organizations will show students “how the genuine, generous and generative characteristics apply to the development of successful organizations. For example, you will apply the Relational Circuit to recruit effectively, or the Self-Portrait and Conversation exercises to create team cohesion and resilience to overcome crises and interpersonal conflicts. You will be able to form trustworthy relationships in spite of diverging or different views, and you will grow respect in your environment where sense will be a driver for you and your surroundings.”
Review: No reviews.
