IMD: Sewa Beats — ‘an innovative way of developing leadership’
World-leading business school, IMD, has just published Mastering Executive Education, (link to www.masteringexecutiveeducation.com) a highly stimulating and informative book offering organisations a new way to design and deliver effective executive learning. Focused on driving high-impact executive education, it identifies and refreshingly describes what makes an effective learning experience. In short, however good the theory and content of a traditional executive education programme may be, if they are delivered in the emotional equivalent of a monotone, attention and absorption levels will be below par.
“High-impact learning is underpinned by four key drivers: emotional highs, energising roles, real-world context and 3-dimensional learning,” states IMD. To anyone familiar with Sewa Beats’ energy and its super-stimulating style, this description clearly explains the success of its executive education methods.
In a section dealing with Sewa Beats’ participation in IMD programmes, the authors explain Sewa Beats’ vivid teaching, describing the emotional impact of the sessions and providing colourful examples of the uplifting and clarifying effect that Sewa Beats learning has on participants. The section concludes with a punchy report on the outstanding results and take-home learning from one of its leadership sessions.
Readers of this lively and useful book will be left in no doubt that IMD has once again side-stepped orthodoxy to create a forceful new way to increase the pace and potency of executive education.
