Pierre Casse: vision is a dream with a deadline!

On April 3 the SKOLKOVP MBA master class “Leadership: the new wave” hold by Pierre Casse, Professor of Leadership at the SKOLKOVO business school, took place on the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO Campus. Pierre Casse, a leading world expert in leadership, has told what it means to be a leader in the modern economic conditions. Below you will find his key points:

If the leadership is not around to turn different challenges into something new (ideas, opportunities etc.), then the mankind is regressing.

It's wrong to have an HR-department in your company - people are not resources anymore!

You should have a Human Talents department instead.

3 basic kinds of leadership: strategic leadership, organizational leadership and people leadership

Strategic leadership is about where you are going and how to get there.

It's a projection to the future, what you must do to make it happen.

Mikhail Konoplev
“The key point of the economics of joint use is that a joint access to resources is much more beneficial than their possession”.

Bill Reichert
“The thing you should achieve during your pitch is a wow effect. Investors give their money being guided by their hearts, not by their minds”.

“3 ways to make an investor fall in love with you: a team, technology, ability to turn the world and perception of it. Each startup has to decide what aspect to focus on while interacting with investors, find a basis for the wow effect”.
