Enhancing performance in a complex world
Previous participants of the ICMIF High Performance Course (HPC) tell us that the learning opportunities provided by the course mean they are much more able to achieve their objectives when tackling the complex situations that are increasingly the focus of their attention in their day-to-day work.
Preparing your most valuable employees for the challenges that lie ahead in their careers is critical to the future success of your organisation. The HPC is specifically designed for mutual/cooperative insurers to help equip their managers, technical specialists, high potential employees and those deemed to be future leaders with a range of tools to help them make sound judgements as their jobs become increasingly complex. This two and a half day course gives participants very valuable insights into how the mutual/cooperative business model can drive competitive advantage.
Featuring the acclaimed AGILE insurance simulation, this course will provide your employees with a highly interactive and challenging learning experience that will help them to enhance their performance and think differently. As well as gaining a more complete understanding of how mutual/cooperative insurers operate and compete, participants will develop alternate points of view by working with their peers from similar insurers from around the world. Crucially, they will be given time to extract the learning from this experience that will help them to make sound judgements in the face of increasing complexity back in the workplace.
Those companies that wish to futureproof their organisation for the complex challenges that lie ahead are invited to register their employees to attend ICMIF’s High Performance Course in Wiesbaden (Germany) on 3-5 June 2019, hosted by R+V Re.
Who should attend?
This course is aimed at employees whose jobs are becoming increasingly complex. This will include (but is not limited to) managers, technical specialists, high potential employees and future leaders. It is also an opportunity for those that want to broaden their understanding of how mutual/cooperative insurers operate and compete. HPC participants reflect the typical make-up of mutual/cooperative insurers and so include a mix of technical insurance and non-technical people. Participants must be comfortable holding strategic conversations in English.
People that attend the course will:
- Develop a network of peers from mutual/cooperative insurers around the globe
- Embrace a highly interactive and challenging learning experience that will help them to apply their potential and think differently
- Gain a more complete understanding of how mutual/cooperative insurers operate and compete by working as a team to manage a simulated insurance company within an evolving insurance market
- Challenge preconceptions and develop alternate points of view by working with their peers from other mutual/cooperative insurers from around the world
- Understand how individual judgement and behaviour work
- Practice harnessing easy-to-use tools for improving individual judgement
- Unlock the potential of group decision making when considering complex problems
- Acquire uplifting tools that improve decision quality by enabling a healthy challenge process
- Extract the learning that will help participants to make sounds judgements in the face of increasing complexity back in the workplace
What makes the HPC different to other courses?
- A unique opportunity to network with international peers from other mutual/cooperative insurers. By working with friends from different organisational cultures participants will develop a better understanding of themselves and their own situation.
- Original content, tools and frameworks designed specifically to meet the needs of ICMIF member organisations; honed in the real-world and based on insights from behavioural science.
- A purpose built flow that enables participants to move several times a day from acquiring the theory to practicing in the simulation; discussing issues with peers; and making notes on how they will apply their learning in the future.
