Executive Forum: The Art of Solution-focused Leadership

Dear Friends of CEIBS,

We cordially invite you to attend the CEIBS Executive Forum on December 5, 2017 with Prof. Louis Cauffman, CEO of SOLT.E.A.M and Integrative Management Institute, and Senior Director of the Belgian Family Business Institute, who will give a lecture titled “The Art of Solution-focused Leadership”.

If you do not know how to lead, you will work yourself to death by expending lots of energy without results. Management and Family Business Management are the art of getting things done through others. Effective management is powered by leadership that coaches where possible, guides where useful, and steers where necessary. Prof. Louis Cauffman will share how to get the best possible results from working with yourself and others while expending minimal energy.

With degrees in both Psychology and Economics, Prof. Cauffman is a renowned coach in Europe in the fields of family business management and focused solutions, and he is a visiting professor at the University of Brussels. He is the founder and CEO of SOLT.E.A.M, an international education and coaching institution specializing in business coaching and psychotherapy. He has also founded several scientific research institutions, including the European Family Therapy Association, and the Integrative Management Institute, an international consulting firm providing services to many multinational companies. Prof. Cauffman specializes in helping family businesses around the world solve problems involving management of ownership and succession strategy. In addition, by using coaching techniques, he helps people to maximize their efficiency and satisfaction in both life and work. Prof. Cauffman also acts as Senior Course Director of the Belgian Family Business Institute and is a former board member of the Family Firm Institute (FFI, USA). He has published four books and more than 25 papers about Solution-Focused Positive Psychology. The Chinese language version of his book The Solution Tango - Seven Simple Steps to Solutions in Management is a bestseller in the online bookstore Dangdang.

We look forward to seeing you at this highly-anticipated event.
