Why LIS?

Complex problems demand an interdisciplinary approach

The challenges faced by contemporary organisations are more interconnected and unpredictable than ever before. In this environment, leaders require a broad network of knowledge and the cognitive flexibility to be comfortable in the face of extreme uncertainty. These leaders can move across new domains, grapple with issues never seen before and synthesise novel solutions through unlikely combinations. That’s why LIS delivers interdisciplinary programmes; programmes that engage with the true complexity you’re facing.

Why LIS?

The world today faces a series of problems that are more complex and interconnected than ever before. These problems, like the climate emergency, can only be tackled using an approach that brings together knowledge and skills from a range of subjects. This is exactly what we at LIS specialise in. You’ll gain perspectives from leading experts in a variety of fields, including sustainability, that provide you with the insights you need to make a real difference.

Finding the right programme for you

LIS works with leaders at all stages in their development: from experienced executives to those transitioning to leadership for the very first time.

Our core programmes take fresh, interdisciplinary perspectives on problems that are at the same time familiar and complex. We always guarantee academic rigour and practical applicability.

We also offer customised programmes, for those individuals and organisations seeking support with challenges that are specific to them. We’ll guide leaders through an interdisciplinary approach to the challenges that they face. We focus on grappling with the big picture, joining the dots and understanding how all elements of the organisation and wider environment interconnect.
