Navigating Your Success in Corporations is a purpose-built programme in English consisting of 15 daily modules and addressed to managers pursuing their professional careers in large multinational organizations. The purpose of the Navigating Your Success in Corporations course is to offer some insightful, relevant, and practical perspective on a host of subjects related to operating in large, multinational, matrixed organizations.
We offer mentoring program under the coordination of Jacek Pastuszka, a manager with an exceptional corporate career on a global level, and Joanna Pommersbach, an experienced advisor with many years of experience in management positions in global human capital consulting companies.
Provided knowledge is supported by practical examples and business cases from management experience across four global companies – Procter & Gamble, Danone, AIG, and Carlsberg, Hay Group, Korn Ferry as well as examples from guests companies such as Dentsu, MDS, Astra-Zeneca, Moyers Legal or BNP Paribas Cardif.
The entire program is focused on understanding the logic and specificity of the operation of large corporations. Our goal is to prepare participants to have a greater positive impact on corporate business by developing key competencies in the corporate environment, such as strategic thinking, influencing, managing uncertainty in the VUCA/BANI world, building effective teams, working in matrix structures, professional and personal ethics.
As a result, participants will be prepared better (and hopefully more successful) in managing their corporate careers. All sessions are conducted jointly by Jacek and Joanna, and some are attended by special guests – managers with many years of experience in corporations who perform C-level roles at the national, regional, or global level. Thanks to this, each subsequent session is a continuation of the previous one – together we build a better understanding of key corporate work topics, and participants have the opportunity to learn different points of view, present their own examples, and get answers to their questions. At the end of the program, they will create their own career development plan according to the proposed model and will have the opportunity to receive support from one of the mentors during an individual session.
