Chief of Staff Executive Education at Harvard Business School
Developed in collaboration with one of the world’s most prestigious business schools, the programme is designed to help chiefs of staff develop the skills they need to thrive in their roles.
Founded in 1908 as part of Harvard University, Harvard Business School is located on a 40-acre campus in Boston. For more than a century, HBS faculty have drawn on their research, their experience in working with organisations worldwide, and their passion for teaching to educate leaders who make a difference in the world, shaping the practice of business and entrepreneurship around the globe.
Classroom sessions during the Chief of Staff Executive Education Programme at HBS include cases examining leaders’ effectiveness in navigating difficult organisational challenges, and exercises designed to enhance skills foundational to the three key activities. Participants will engage in case discussions exploring multiple aspects of leadership, collaboration, and organisational alignment. Participants will also actively practice different approaches influencing others, managing conflict, and building trust.
Inside and outside the classroom, participants will share their own experiences and questions, teaching and learning from one another as they build relationships with other chiefs of staff. Participants will leave HBS with new understandings of the chief of staff’s role in creating organisational effectiveness and innovation, and new skills for influence and collaboration.
