Module 1 Managing Self: The Reflective Mindset
The Reflective Mindset module focuses on the first of the five mindsets; it also is the introduction to the IMPM program, establishing a reflective approach to the entire experience. Set in a relaxed, low-key atmosphere, participants meet across cultures, nations, functions, industries and lives, and quickly embark on engaged explorations of ideas and experiences, including:
- Discussions about managerial work, personal styles, learning organizations, systems, ethics, the meaning of work and the nature of self
- Field studies and cultural audits to put the theory into practice. Participants use the cultural web framework to understand the global companies they visit. Then, as executives, they apply the web to their own organizations
- Self reflection and understanding the individual leadership attributes that each participant brings into the organization
The outcome of this module is quite extraordinary in terms of new experiences, the participants' reactions to others, and the evolution of self-knowledge, which is the prerequisite for leading others and organizations.
