2021, 'Leading Change'
by Professor Robert Anthony from Harvard University with Hult IBS in Boston / USA. 

Change is a constant in the global business world. Being able to successfully undertake change is what allows extraordinary businesses to maintain their competitive advantage over time. The ability to lead and inspire change is one of the most important qualities a business leader can possess. The overall purpose of this course is to prepare future leaders to step-up and initiate, focus and plan successful change initiatives in different business contexts and to develop skills for personally leading change. Thus, the specific aims of the course are to acquaint students with resources and practical, proven approaches to envision an enhanced future state and a compelling reason to change; build ownership and commitment to the change; focus, engage and involve people in change initiatives; guide, direct and support change initiatives; demonstrate successful results and early wins; anticipate and address issues and challenges as they arise; and make sure the change "sticks".
... and the real question is the why we seem to be so obsessed, as in 'ocd' - with 'constant change' - and what this means. 

2021, 'The science of Well-being'
with Professor Dr. Laurie Santos, professor at Yale University New Haven (Connecticut) / USA. 
Content: Explanation of our own misconceptions about happiness and why we have then. Annoying features of the mind that can lead us to think irrationally about happiness, and the research that can help us change. How we can counteract annoying features of our mind that keep us from being happy. Active strategies to become happier and how to intentionally put them into place. Be prepared to successfully incorporate a personal wellness activity into your life. 
-> On a personal note: this course resonated with me, because in 1994, an English teacher in Sydney told me that the label 'well-being' doesn't exist, when I proposed this to be used in a 'wellness programme' - so naturally I cas curious and wanted to now more about the course that calls itself 'the science of well-being.

*Erfahrung aus dem EMBA Studium
Im 2-jährigen intensiven Teilzeit-Studium zum Executive Master of Business Administration gehörte es dazu, mit 17 unterschiedlichen Teams, bestehend aus je 4-5 Führungskräften zwischen 28 und 59 Jahren, mit verschiedenem kulturellen Hintergrund, Erfahrung und Charakterzügen, innerhalb eines sehr knappen Zeitfensters Resultate zu liefern.

Manuela van der Glas hat dies hervorragend gemeistert und mit 85 unterschiedlichen Führungskräften zusammengearbeitet sowie gute bis sehr gute und realisierbare Resultate geliefert. 

Die Resultate wurden in folgenden Geschäftsbereichen erzielt: business execution, global strategy, global management, corporate responsibility, information technology management, managerial economics, global operations, International marketing, quantitive analysis, financial management, corporate finance, international accounting und in einem 3-monatigen action project in value based pricing einer globalen Unternehmung im Nanotechnologie Sektor. Das Curriculum bestand aus business cases von: MIT, McKinsey, Wharton, Stanford und Harvard. 

Folgende Vertiefungsmodule rundeten den intensiven Executive MBA ab: In London / UK: principled leadership, change management, disruptive innovation, breakthrough strategies. In San Fransisco/USA:  corporate diplomacy & managing geopolitical risk.

Dieses breite Wissen sowie die intensive Erfahrung hat Manuela van der Glas zu einem starken Sparring-Partner auf Ihrer Augenhöhe geformt, welcher Ihnen mit Herz hilft, auch in knappen Zeitfenstern, realisierbare Resultate zu liefern.
