Interview with Gianpiero Petriglieri Discussing the Future of Business Ethics



Gianpiero Petriglieri is an award-winning leadership expert and Professor at INSEAD where he directs the Management Acceleration Programme, the school’s flagship executive program for emerging leaders. He also chairs the Initiative for Learning Innovation and Teaching Excellence.

Petriglieri has refined an inimitable approach to leadership development which aims to accelerate the development of individual leaders and strengthen leadership communities within and across organisations.

He designs and directs customised Leadership Development Programs for multinationals in a variety of industries, some of which have received industry-wide awards. He has chaired the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on new models of leadership, and was recently named one of the 50 most influential management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50.

He frequently talks about how Leaders can be trustworthy and foster commitment in this ever-changing 21st century workplace. He addresses how organisations can honour their history and traditions while working to transform it. He believes in nurturing a common culture while reaping the benefits of a diverse workforce.

He is a medical doctor and psychiatrist by training, his research also highlights the psychological, social and cultural functions of leadership development. His teaching methods provide a model of how to perform those functions purposefully for the benefit of individuals, organisations and society at large.

Petriglieri’s research also documents the rise and consequences of “nomadic professionalism,” a workplace culture in which authenticity and mobility have replaced loyalty and advancement as hallmarks of virtue and success. In this culture, the promise of learning is more potent than the promise of loyalty for many employees. Organisations that fail to keep this promise struggle to attract talent, while those that do are able to sustain people’s loyalty even after they leave. And the more that mobility renders careers and organisations fluid, the more timeless virtues like trustworthiness matter.

His keynotes and workshops help leaders better understand how changes in workforce mobility make new ways of leading and learning necessary—and allow them to reconcile commitment with flexibility. He is an insightful and engaging speaker with a unique perspective on what it means, and what it takes, to become and remain a Leader.

Earning consistent praise as an unforgettable keynote speaker, President Robinson brings the thought leadership of a former head of state, a grandmother’s passionately felt concern for the future and the compelling stories of the thousands she has met traveling the world as a champion for climate justice, human rights, gender equality, and corporate responsibility. Known for touching hearts, expanding mindsets and sparking meaningful conversation, Mary Robinson frames humanity’s most daunting threat in highly solvable terms, leaving audiences hopeful and inspired to change the course of our planet’s future.
