Globally recognised leader in management thinking, governance education and board advisory, Ludo Van der Heyden, is in Australia on a whistestop tour promoting the INSEAD IDP.  As an INSEAD IDP partner, WOB has secured Ludo to speak at a breakfast event on 'managing dualities (opposites) in the boardroom' and finding a good balance between apparent extremes.

Ludo contends that the first condition for leadership effectiveness in the boardroom lies in bridging of the dualities (opposites) that challenge a board, in such a way that one avoids being positioned at the extremes. In his 60 minute presentation Ludo will discuss dualities that affect boards including finding the right balance between; short and long term, growth and performance, the performance of the whole and that of a unit and local versus global. He will also consider gender as a duality, where finding the “right balance” is an interesting question which has several answers.

A panel discussion with graduates and participants on the INSEAD International Directors Program will follow.
