Open MLI Programmes: Future Skills for Agile Leadership

Do you want to handle complexity and uncertainty confidently in your leadership role?

Do you want to understand how to influence social dynamics and win active supporters for your goals?

Do you want to prepare yourself for the leadership challenges in the age of digitalisation and artificial intelligence?

Then the programs of the MLI Academy are the right thing for you: You can use relevant cognitive research findings in practice and transfer them to your situation in order to take leadership more effectively.

The programs are based on the findings of the Future of Leadership Initiative, founded by the MLI. In research projects on the future competencies of leadership, we have analysed success patterns of contemporary leadership in in-depth interviews with 150 global thought leaders and in the interaction with more than 500 decision-makers, and didactically prepared them effectively.
