Jan Van Hasenbroek (B): Going Back to School
This 2-page case describes the decision Jan took to try to change the way he led IG&H, having been made aware of the harm his leadership was inflicting on the people he managed. He described this realization as "an emotional breakthrough." The case ends with his decision to attend an executive program on Leadership, raising the following questions for class discussion: Can a program change a career-long leadership behaviour? Why or why not? And what is possible and likely to change in Jan's case and what is not?
