Ben Bryant

Keynote Speaker: Professor of Leadership & Organization at IMD

Ben Bryant Biography

Ben Bryant has been a Professor of Leadership at IMD, Switzerland since 2006. Throughout his career, he has worked with hundreds of executives, from CEOs to middle managers, to develop their leadership capabilities. His provocative style challenges leaders to look deeply within themselves and their contexts to question, reflect and transform themselves and their organisations.

Bryant has been sharing his research and experience for over 30 years. He has worked closely with many CEOs and executive teams from several diverse industries. He has designed and delivered leadership interventions in Europe, the USA, Asia and Australia for middle and senior managers and executives. His most significant long-term clients include Mars Inc., GlaxoSmithKline, Zurich Financial Services, LVMH, Maersk, Daimler, China Light and Power, UCB, as well as several others.

The focus of his current research is how leaders can be both reflective and transformational in highly complex leadership contexts. As Director of the IMD CEO Learning Centre, he has focused his research specifically on the challenges of learning, growth and transformation of CEOs and senior executives.

Before coming to IMD in 2006, Bryant was a Fellow of the Centre for Management Development at London Business School for 8 years, where he was also Director of their flagship program – the Global Business Consortium.

Bryant is Australian by birth but has lived and worked in Europe and the UK since 1993.

Can Senior Leaders Really Learn

While most senior leaders say they are open to learning, and therefore change, do their roles really enable learning and change. In this session we shall explore the four learning disablers of senior managers and executives

  • Cognitive Overload
  • Excessive Conviction
  • Accumulated Success
  • Isolation – and the spotlight effect

Leading in Turbulent Times

The 21st century has so far proven to be the century of the unpredictable. Financial Crises; Climate Change; Digital Disruptions; THE Pandemic; War in Europe; Civil unrest and inequality. What is the role of leadership in this unpredictable century? How has the concept of leadership changed, and what are the key attributes of effective leaders? We will explore mindfulness, resilience, adaptation, containment and negative capability.

Archetypes of Personal Transformation

While the world around us changes at an alarming pace, in this session we explore how leaders create their own personal transformation. Through several transformation archetypes, we explore:

  • Triggers of transformation (internal or external)
  • Dissonance and hidden comments that resist change
  • The importance of the here and now
  • Finding purpose in Expectations, Goals and Exploration
