How GEP is Different
Over the past two years, dealing with the challenges of COVID, and the multiple geopolitical events that have had an impact across the world, we have reviewed the design of Sasin’s signature Senior Executive Program (SEP) and overhauled the program from the ground up to focus very much on the complex and volatile futures that face most businesses today. In a post-pandemic world, the rules of business have changed dramatically. Where most leaders aspire to “get back to normal”, the new Global Executive Program (GEP) gets you focused on the “New Normal” of ever-changing business and regulatory environments, markets, value chains, and ecologies. Traditional power and hierarchies may adjust too slow to drive true performance in this volatile world which continues to provide disruptive challenges as well as new opportunities. Sasin’s GEP provides a comprehensive compass for senior leaders to build an adaptive and sustainably high performing organization with a human-centered focus. Sasin’s Global Executive Program (GEP) focuses on strategic leadership for the complex and challenging future. The program is designed to address four key themes of leadership capability: Global Trends and Environmental Intelligence Think Systemically and with Foresight Global Leaders today have to know, learn, and act across many boundaries and in many different contexts. They need to assure success in an unpredictable future. From embracing the global, regional, and national natural resources and regulatory environments to the trends that reverberate through and across these boundaries that affect their local or cross region industry and business. Thoughtful leaders see and convey the systemic interdependencies inherent in business landscapes. This module gives leaders the tools and mindset to develop foresight and systemic perspectives. Strategic Intelligence: Competing for the Future Thriving in Complexity The Covid 19 pandemic and ongoing geo-political volatility has created shifts in the interconnected and interdependent ways that businesses operate around the world, and even in perspectives of globalization. Supply chains have been disrupted, trust has fallen, regulatory changes have impacted relationships. All this has a dramatic impact on the strategies of old. Redefining Strategy as Innovation in the context of Competing for the Future of our industry and our business may become tantamount to long term success and competitive advantage. Executives need to be both strategic leaders as well as inspire innovations as we learn to compete for the future in uncertain and unpredictable times. This module integrates Strategy and Innovation will provide us a way to thrive sustainably in times of complexity. Leadership Intelligence: Resilience and Legacy Perform with Agility Leadership is under the microscope. For many parts of our business, we cannot return to the mechanical era of command and control, and simplistic input and output measures. Leadership today is determined by the measures of resilience, adaptability, and legacy. Resilient leaders deal with the unexpected and adapt with grace; they know when to persevere and when to pivot. This module guides leaders to engage with these new aspects of their roles driven by purpose and empathy to leave a legacy of impact and success. Organisational Intelligence: Transformation and Movement Lead with Presence and Transparency Organizations are moved by people for people. Transformation and Movement are the success measures for Organizational Effectiveness. The course will reacquaint leaders with the Organizational House of Leadership that has people and capability at its foundation and an inspirational vision as its guiding principle. Organizational Structure, Behavior, and Effectiveness will provide the constructs based upon which we can create movements from within organizations in collaboration with their stakeholders (communities, authorities, nature, etc.) Inspiring leaders show up with the executive presence needed to drive action and influence outcomes with power and authenticity. This final module will bring together the key factors of leading for future and provide tools for leaders to implement new and innovative solutions in their businesses. Furthermore, we have moved away from selecting purely academic educators, to engaging global thought leaders and practitioners with feet in both the world of executive education, and practical application. As a residential program in Hua-Hin, participants will be staying with your peers for the whole run of the program. You will be given time to connect and network with each other through various activities, including fireside chats with business leaders who have shown great success in specific areas, as well as experts in different backgrounds, successful start-up founders, cultural and social leaders, and social entrepreneurs. You will learn how to:
  • Create environmental and geopolitical understanding of business ecologies necessary to support your organization.
  • Identify a strategic vision and develop scenarios to build a sustainable competitive advantage in your key markets.
  • Source and grow the talent capabilities necessary for sustainable performance.
  • Create and establish innovation and design thinking processes to support your organization’s vision, mission/purpose, and strategy.
  • Explore the specific leadership mindset and capabilities needed to operate in today’s complex and ever-changing business climate.
  • Anticipate the organizational structures, changes, and transformation necessary to create human-centered movements in organizations and markets that benefit your products and services.
Sasin’s international faculty will use specific learning methods throughout the program, including simulations, illustrations, group & personal reflections, application, and experimentation:
  • Simulation: You will be immersed in various business scenarios as it becomes inescapably clear that all leaders and businesses must adapt, grow, and cooperate to win.
  • Illustration: Examples from a range of industries will inspire action and demonstrate excellence.
  • Reflection: We provide time, space, and structure for you to process your learning experiences.
  • Application: We challenge and support you as you apply what you have learned to your real situation.
  • Experimentation: You will design experiments to be tested and measured in the weeks and months after the conclusion of your face-to-face experience in the program.
