Achieving Managerial Excellence Programme (AME)

Soft skills for business

The CEDEP AME is a fully-immersive 9-day programme that helps managers and functional leaders develop a wide range of soft skills crucial for success in our interconnected and competitive world.

Excelling on functional expertise alone is no longer enough. Instead, today’s leaders are required to develop an enterprise perspective and collaborate across functions, business units and regions to have real organisational impact. Connecting with stakeholders beyond the functional specialty is vital to gain support for new ideas and execute them successfully. This is where soft skills become essential.

AME reinforces participants’ ability to lead and follow in today’s constantly changing, high-pressure and volatile business world. And real-life business challenges are at the core of this collaborative programme. Participants are asked to bring a relevant business challenge to the sessions where they will directly apply their deep-dive learnings as the programme evolves. They will acquire a profound knowledge of themselves, their decisions and other perspectives to better analyse situations and solve problems in a more pragmatic and impactful way.

Main Objectives

As a highly-interactive programme, AME helps participants adopt the right mindset and tools to foster collaboration and drive team performance based on their real-life experiences, personality and background.

It takes them on a journey to develop the soft skills needed to successfully make the shift from doing things themselves, to getting things done with and through others.

→ Create the opportunity for collaboration and change in your organisation – across functions and beyond

→ Navigate the corporate landscape effectively to engage commitment

→ Explore emerging levers to thrive in a digitalised, diverse and complex world

→ Develop the communication skills and performance skills to be an inspiring, dynamic leader.

Learning Journey

AME is structured to enable participants to network, share and learn from the experiences of others. By collaborating with other managers from diverse cultures and industries, they will integrate their learnings and receive the feedback required to understand themselves, their behaviours and the current impact of their leadership style.

This collaboration reveals how to break free from personal restraints and provides more clarity on how to solve problems and conflict in a variety of real-life situations.

During this unique and powerful journey of personal and professional growth, participants will:

→ Acquire a deep knowledge of themselves, their decisions and other perspectives to better analyse situations and solve problems in a pragmatic way

→ Learn how to effectively collaborate across functions, cultures and geographies and boost efficiency by turning inter-cultural differences into an asset

→ Go back to work re-energised with new ideas and concrete actionable steps to create the right context for change, drive their business challenge forward and make real business impact

→ Have the skills and confidence to give their teams the support they need to drive performance and create a ripple effect within their organisation
