The UB Business School Executive MBA organised on 24 and 25 April a practical leadership workshop in a Sitges hotel for two intensive days. The training was directed by Victor M. Rodriguez Ardura, a consultant specialized in leadership and business management, and was based on a learning methodology focusing on games and group dynamics. The participants explored the challenges of leadership in managing change, one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century.

During the workshop, students learned about the challenges of a leader, the alignment of personal and organizational values, the characteristics of a transformation leader, and the phases of personal change, among other topics. The ‘Learning by playing’ methodology was central throughout the stage, with the game and experimentation as strategic learning engines. At the end, the participants became aware of the difficulties of leadership in managing transformation, finding themselves better prepared to face the challenges of the business world.
