Executive Leadership Program
An invitation-only program that convenes rising stars from the world’s leading companies to build their knowledge of geopolitical trends shaping today’s business environment, sharpen their core leadership skills, and cultivate an exclusive global network of peers.
Throughout the four-month learning journey, participants broaden their understanding of economic and social developments around the globe, and learn techniques for responding with agility to disruptive forces and trends impacting business. Participants build knowledge and leadership skills by engaging in distinctive digital learning, in-person events, and live webinars featuring CEOs, faculty from the world’s leading business schools, and McKinsey practitioners. Previous speakers have included Beth Comstock (Vice Chair, General Electric), Andrew Liveris (Chairman & CEO, Dow Chemical), Peter Grauer (Chairman, Bloomberg LP), Chip Heath (Professor, Stanford Graduate School of Business), and Colonel Michael Fenzel (US Army).
A typical participant is N-1/N-2 and currently leading a business unit or functional area or being groomed to do so. Participants are nominated by their organization’s leaders in conjunction with their McKinsey client service team (CST). We encourage clients to nominate a group of at least four participants to go through the experience together (they can be from across the organization).
At the end of the program participants have not only a richer understanding of global trends, but also a support network, tools, and frameworks to lead self, lead others, and lead their businesses through periods of transformational change.
