Personal Letter From Gianpiero Petriglieri:
Gianpiero Petriglieri Masterclass:
Recently the IMI held a Masterclass at the IMI Conference Centre with Gianpiero Petriglieri on The Essence of Leadership. With the aid of concepts from psychology, mythology, sociology and neurosciences, Gianpiero’s session reached below superficial leadership theories to address the question—what makes a leader?
Gianpiero is an associate professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD and was short-listed for the 2013 “Future Thinker” award by Thinkers50 ranking. As he mentioned in the Masterclass his research explores the domains of leadership, in particular, exercising leadership mindfully, effectively and responsibly.
Following the Masterclass Gianpiero sent us a personal letter for the attendees of the Masterclass :
Dear Masterclass Participants,
Thank you once again for a lively and insightful conversation yesterday in Dublin, and for your warm welcome. I left with much energy and plenty of ideas to think about. Several of you asked for some of my writing related to the class theme and ideas. Here goes, as promised.
This is a book chapter summarizing my research and approach to leadership development. It is far from the traditional concoction of case discussions, great-leader-worship and self-help that many still associate to ‘leadership programmes,’ and much more aligned with the intent of fostering deep individual development and community building that several of you shared.
I write regularly on leadership and leadership development in the Harvard Business Review, these are some posts on the themes we touched upon.
On the need for more humane, connected leaders: There is no shortage of leaders.
On developing ‘global leaders’ who are skillful and trustworthy: Nomadic leaders need roots.
On helping leaders find their voice, and why it matters: Why work is lonely.
On leadership as engaged artistry: A lesson in engaged artistry.
There are more where these came from, you can find the full list here.
I also post new writing on LinkedIn and related musings on Twitter.
I hope you find some of this material interesting. I hope our paths will cross again soon.
With gratitude, and kind regards,
