Leading Leader’s Career… In Search Meaning of Life
- emlyon business school Global DBA Information Session

Executive? Business Owner contemplating transition? “Yes, I am a C-suite. While the pressure of performance, digital transformation of organization, and young talented colleagues are constantly making me thinking about my next step”. “I’ve accomplished a lot in my life (professionally and/or personally), I feel like there’s another chapter out there for me.”

Executives aged beyond forties sometimes are facing midlife crisis. They are in search of meaningful new identities.

A mid-term life-changing decisions involve careful thinking and planning. Take the privilege to join this group of peers in a close and safe environment, make the reflection and discussion on your own value, vision, mission (not that of your company!), and better plan your career transition towards various possibilities: start your own business, coach, mentor, a dream to become adjunct professor in a business school, NGO leader, investor, or continue in corporate.
