Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD and an expert on leadership


Gianpiero Petriglieri is Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD and an expert on leadership and learning in the workplace.

His award-winning research and teaching focus on what it means, and what it takes, to become a leader. He is particularly interested in the development and practice of leadership in the age of “nomadic professionalism,” an age in which people have deep bonds to work but loose affiliations to organizations, and authenticity and mobility have replaced loyalty and advancement as hallmarks of virtue and success.

All his work aspires to humanise leadership in this age, that is, to help leaders be grounded as well as as adaptable, sustainable as well as effective, purposeful as well as portable. That work has earned him a spot among the 50 most influential management thinkers in the world. Gianpiero regards leadership as a craft and, at its best, a genuine art form–because it involves using one’s energy, intellect, passion, skills, and tools to bring a unique intent to life and share it with the world. Building on his research, he has refined a unique approach to learning the artistry of leading. That approach aims to help individuals and groups clarify their leadership intent, claim it, commit to it, and forge relationships that sustain it.

At INSEAD, Gianpiero directs the Management Acceleration Programme, the school’s flagship executive programme for emerging leaders, and chairs the INSEAD initiative for Learning Innovation and Teaching Excellence.

The speaker talks about:

How can leaders be more trustworthy and foster meaning and commitment in the workplace? Why do some organizations keep people’s loyalty after they are gone, while others struggle to attract talent? How do you nurture a common culture while honouring the voices of a diverse workforce? How can leaders show care in times of crisis and beyond? These are the challenges that Gianpiero’s insights and advice will help you tackle.
