Cette prise de recul m’a amené à repenser mes pratiques, comme un préalable nécessaire pour actualiser mes connaissances et me préparer à « un après »."

Marie-Claire Lemaître

Directrice générale de Mercuri Urval France


La devise d’HEC a permit à un certain nombre d’entre-nous d’oser se lancer soit dans une recherche personnelle très différente, soit de s’exposer d’avantage au sein de sa propre structure y compris au regard de ses collaborateurs."

Alain Guillemier

Cette formation m'a permis d'avoir un regard différent, prospectif et systématique sur l'impact de ma fonction dans la stratégie de l'entreprise et sur mon impact personnel en tant que dirigeant. C'est une formidable impulsion."
