Dear ICF members and friends,
There's no denying that life as a Globally Mobile Leader and his/her family can be full of excitement, challenge and overwhelming events. This is especially true in Luxembourg where many of us come from all over the world to be part of the new global economy. Leadership transitions are an issue that affect every company and every professional in Luxembourg.
We are pleased to invite you to Leadership Transitions, an in-depth conference held at the International School of Luxembourg on May 18, 2020.
Michael Watkins best-selling author of the classic onboarding bible 'The First 90 Days' was named one of the world's most influential business thinkings by 'Thinkers 50' who identify and rank the top 50 management thinkers globally. Watkins advises CEOs taking new roles, both externally hired and internally promoted. He works with them to plan their entry into their organisation and to create momentum once they are there. He supports them in working with their boards, building their teams and transforming their organisations.
Katia Vlacho's book was featured in the Financial Times 'Business Books of the Month' and her book 'A Great Move' provides the principles and proven success you need to follow to make a successful international move. She deals with the practical issues but most importantly the emotional aspects that impact the family and highlights the need for leaders to address these issues.
Rather than an escape from the trials of the world, we intend Leadership Transitions to be a return to balance and clarity—for learning how to gain a deeper understanding of the situation at hand in how to adapt to that reality.
Tickets and tables will be available soon. For now mark the date in your calendar!
