Understanding how to create a fit between our colleagues, our organisation and our corporate goals is incredibly important as we try to make significant contributions in our careers. Today we are talking about how to transform yourself and your organisation with our guests from the Executive Master in Change Programme.
Everybody has diverse needs for career support, whether they are already on their way to building a successful career in their current organisation, or looking to progress in a new organisation or a new field. Today we discuss Career Development and Career Fulfilment to help you engineer not just greater success at work but also personal and professional fulfilment. Our guests today Yassine Lahlou
Before it was cool, my father was an entrepreneur, and although he did not single-handedly invent the “nomad economy”, he certainly applied the concept of taking on new professional challenges every two years, sometimes it felt like every two weeks. For me, that meant constant change: new towns, new schools and new friends.
It is incredible how much has happened this year. As a recent grad and someone who is joining the labour force again, I wanted to share some reflections while answering the most popular question: why did I decide to do an MBA? Let’s summarise it into three reasons:
Most Executive MBA (EMBA) participants are looking for some kind of career change, either during the programme or after graduation. However, individual professional development needs and goals tend to differ widely amongst participants, and the INSEAD Career Development Centre for Working Professionals (CDWP) is in place to support you in the process of self-assessment and discovery, as well as execution of your individual career plan.
Executive MBA (EMBA) participants have diverse needs for career support, whether they are already on their way to building a successful career in their current organisation, or looking to progress in a new organisation or a new field.
I came out of the programme being a better friend, a better husband and a better father.
After INSEAD, I am no longer afraid of stepping into a foreign country.
When a consultant from an Executive Search firm called to sound out my interest for a position they were working on, I didn't know it would turn out to be my next career move. I wasn't actively looking, as I was well protected by the company-sponsored INSEAD programme and generous employment terms. I did know that my learning curve was flattening out, which is not something I particularly enjoy.
