Leading Enterprise Teams


The landscape for leadership has changed. Increasingly, leaders are accountable for the economic and social welfare of the entire enterprise while simultaneously running a business, project, function, or geography. We refer to this role as an enterprise leader. If you are such a leader and/or if you oversee a team of such leaders, this executive training course is intended to help you sharpen mindsets, and skillsets required to shepherd your entire organization toward greater agility and growth. It is also designed to help you create a culture in which leaders are held accountable for having an enterprise perspective.

For the past couple of decades, companies have focused on creating strong leaders of business units and influential heads of functions who are responsible for achieving results in one corner of an organization. But many of these same companies have underemphasized a more important challenge: developing leaders who see the enterprise as a whole and act for its greater good. That perspective has become increasingly necessary as companies seek to provide not just products, but the broad-based, integrated solutions customers now demand.

Led by and based on the research of MIT Sloan Senior Lecturer Douglas Ready, an expert on organizational transformation and the role of senior executive teams in driving change, Leading Enterprise Teams is designed to help senior executives think differently about what constitutes effective leadership in this ever-evolving environment. If you serve on or oversee an enterprise-level team, or if you are responsible for hiring and developing such teams, this executive training course is for you.

Through lectures, case studies, and highly interactive discussions, you will be presented with the key mindsets and skill sets necessary to lead with an enterprise perspective. Course content will address many of the leadership challenges you face including:

  • How to lead collectively at an enterprise level while also leading your own teams at a functional level
  • Straddling functional and geographic responsibilities in the context of a team that includes other executives with similar paradoxes
  • Identifying when suboptimal systems are actually beneficial to the enterprise
  • Understanding when functional orientation a benefit to the organization and when does it becomes a cost

The program will also feature an Executive Perspective to embed the enterprise leadership concepts in a real-life context.

Greg Hill is President and Chief Operating Officer of Hess Corporation, a global independent energy company engaged in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas. He will share his personal journey from unit to enterprise leader, and an executive’s perspective on the importance of creating an organization where the culture, values and goals of various units are aligned to work towards the greater good of the enterprise.

Reimagining What It Takes To Lead

In this webinar, Doug Ready explores the future of leadership in a changing world. He reviews the MIT Sloan Management Review “The New Leadership Playbook for the Digital Age,” study findings and discusses the leadership values and behaviors the research indicates are most valuable to organizations now and in the future.
