Mission and Approach


The Centre’s mission is to provide French-speaking students and practitioners, in the field of leadership and management, with research, teaching materials and learning experiences that are original, innovative and unique.


  • Leadership must be thought of, first and foremost, as a lived experience. So it is a matter of embodying, contextualizing, humanizing the study of leadership.
  • Leadership is a subtle phenomenon that requires in-depth work involving people who practice it. It requires a range of approaches from various human and social sciences.
  • Teaching involving reflection, introspection, and discussion based on concrete materials (e.g., cases and simulations) is given preference over lectures.
