Programme Description

This executive training (to be held in presence in Florence) tackles a wide range of topics related to diversity and inclusivity (D&I) in management from both a neuroscientific and a systemic/institutional point of view. Addressed at leaders in private and public organisations, the goal is to offer an open and secure space to explore, grow awareness, experience and discuss human behaviours in the face of diversity (as mediated through personal bias); people’s attitude towards change and growth; and the challenges of overcoming resistance and transforming organisational cultures. Instructors will include academics and practitioners and methods will combine lectures, storytelling, games and the sharing of personal experiences through conversation. The focus of this programme is on identifying and building key conceptual models that participants can dynamically apply to their organisation with new forms of humanistic leadership being brought to the fore.
