Students of the Executive MBA at the UB Business School took part in a dynamic workshop on leadership last week. During two intensive days, the group met in a hotel in Sitges, on the coast of Barcelona, on May 11th and 12th 2017. The workshop offered practical training through game-based experiences, group dynamics, role-plays, practical cases, videos and multimedia content. At the end of the stage, participants had a better understanding of leadership in the framework of the management of change, one of the major challenges of the 21st century.
Victor M. Rodriguez Ardura conducted this workshop titled ‘Leadership in times of change and uncertainty’. Rodriguez Ardura is a consultant, specialised in Strategy, Performance Management, Coaching, Change Management, Management by Values, Organisational Development, Human Resources Strategy, Organisation and Processes and co-creation models. He also gives training sessions and talks in numerous renowned business schools, including the UB Business School.
The ‘Learning by playing’ method, based on games and experimentations as key strategic drivers for learning, is at the heart of this stage. During this training session, the Executive MBA students will have a closer look at the challenges that leaders have to face, the alignment of personal and organisational values, the typical characteristics of a transformational leader, the need to break established patterns to enter the learning zone and the phases of personal change, among other things.
