In this action research session Professor Andrew Kakabadse argues the importance of aligned interests between leaders and staff, and what affect this can have on trust and competitive advantage.
To look at the issue of leadership responses to the 2020 COVID-19 crisis, Henley Executive Education brought together groups of executives from different organisations via video call sessions.
As organisations seek to pull themselves together following the COVID-19 crisis, trust is even more essential. What does this mean for top-team dynamics, for relations between chair and CEO? How will it affect the way organisations engage with stakeholders?
Executive Education at Henley Business School explored these issues in a series of real-time, engaging and thought-provoking discussions with executives from a range of organisations. From these sessions, led by Professor Andrew Kakabadse, and taking into account Henley’s research, there are important considerations on the issue of ‘trust’ in the time of COVID-19.

One of the main reasons I selected Henley’s Executive MBA programme was the inclusion of two immersion study visits as part of the curriculum. Our group has just returned from a wonderful week in Miami, where we were immersed in the local culture and learned about international business and entrepreneurship from various perspectives.
