The International Institute of Management and Development (IMD) to Present High Performance Leadership Program

Most Successful Executive Development Program in IMD's History Makes U.S. Debut in April 2013

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Institute of Management and Development (IMD) located in Lausanne, Switzerland announces the first ever edition of its most successful executive development program High Performance Leadership (HPL) in the US. This six-day program will be held at the Chaminade Resort and Spa located in Santa Cruz, CA starting April 7, 2013.

High Performance Leadership was created 10 years ago by Dr. George Kohlrieser based on his experiences as a clinical psychologist and hostage negotiator. His book Hostage At The Table: How Leaders Can Overcome Conflict, Influence Others and Raise Performance is the foundation for the program. Since its inception, 2,000 executives have completed the program and there is a waiting list for each and every session of the Lausanne-based program.

"In 2010 we took HPL to Hong Kong and Sao Paulo with great success. The demand for this program has created opportunities for us to expand its availability and we're very excited to bring HPL to the US for the first time," commented Dr. Kohlrieser.  "HPL is a very unique program and we challenge the executives in ways that no other program does. We see them leave transformed by the knowledge they now have to become high performing leaders," he added.

Dr. Kohlrieser released his latest book Care To Dare: Unleashing Astonishing Potential Through Secure Base Leadership in 2012. Soundview just named it one of the Top 30 business books of the year. Secure base leadership is one of the eight pillars of leadership taught in the HPL program led by Dr. Kohlrieser and his Co-Director, Dr. Francisco Szekely. "Being a Secure Base leader creates trust allowing the brain to be free from defensiveness and fear, releasing the energy to explore, take risk and be creative - all behaviours high performance organizations strive for," continued Dr. Kohlrieser. "It works at the personal, team and organizational level and is a way of 'being' where you care enough to dare people to reach for their dreams. In the process, you provide what so many people and companies are missing today – humanity at its deepest level."

A unique characteristic of HPL is the use of executive coaches. Dr. Kohlrieser and Dr. Szekely pioneered the addition of small group coaching to augment the learning and application of the concepts addressed in the plenary sessions. "Our executive coaches are able to create an atmosphere where deep learning and accountability occur so that each executive has a chance to explore where they want to go in order to experience the growth they are seeking. Most executives are truly amazed at how much they learn and expand their capabilities in such as short amount of time," stated Dr. Szekely.

Paula Miller, Managing Director of GMAC Hungary, provides the following testimonial: "I came to this course believing I was a good leader and hoping to gather a few pointers to become a bit better. I leave it altered – the first step in a journey to reach the full potential that I now know I possess."

Multinational companies and organizations such as Danone, Hertz, JTI, Hitachi, GMAC, and the EIB send their executives to HPL on a regular basis.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
