Riding the Leadership Rollercoaster
Professor Manfred Kets de Vries, INSEAD Distinguished Professor of Leadership Development and Organisational Change

To tackle the challenges of geopolitical risk, fragile supply chains and economic uncertainties business leaders need resilience, resourcefulness and courage as never before. Hence, understanding the making of effective business leaders remains a huge priority.


Professor Kets de Vries, a Dutch management scholar, psychoanalyst and consultant is one of the world’s foremost thinkers on leadership. Bringing to bear his knowledge and experience of economics (Doctoral Examination in Economics, University of Amsterdam), management (MBA, and DBA, Harvard Business School) and psychoanalysis (Canadian Psychoanalytic Society and the International Psychoanalytic Association), he scrutinises the interface between international management, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and dynamic psychiatry. He will share his experiences and research on the leadership journey of the world’s foremost business leaders.


Professor Kets de Vries is the founder of the Kets de Vries Institute (KDVI Ltd.), a global leadership development and organisational culture transformation consultancy. He has held professorships at ESMT, Berlin, Harvard Business School and McGill University, is the founder of the INSEAD Global Leadership Centre and received the INSEAD Distinguished Teacher Award five times. He is the author, co-author or editor of more than 50 books. The Financial Times, Le Capital and The Economist have rated Professor Kets de Vries as one of the world’s top fifty management thinkers and one of the most influential contributors to human resource management.


The IMI Corporate & Investment Banking Division of Intesa Sanpaolo, Italy’s leading banking Group and one of the top banks in Europe, is launching a series of lectures about fundamental management issues by leading management thinkers, experts and scholars on their field of expertise. It is therefore delighted to be beginning this series with an inaugural lecture by a scholar of such international stature.
