Mutual Leadership: Adapting to a Complex World - An ICMIF online course
(Quarter 1 2021 events)

23 February 2021 to 16 March 2021 inclusive

Where: Online

When: Twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursday) over a period of three weeks

Two concurrent courses will run during these dates with different times to accommodate different time zones:

  • Orange group: 09.00 to 11.00 (GMT)
  • Blue group: 14.00 to 16.00 (GMT)

Participants will typically be expected to stay in their chosen group for the duration of the course.

Duration: The duration of each course is around 18 hours, which includes seven two-hour sessions and approximately four additional hours for preparation and review time.

“I liked that the sessions were spaced out over three weeks, it gave me additional time to reflect on the content and helped me to see how elements of the course could be applied to real work situations.”

Equip your existing and emerging leaders with the tools and mindsets to help your organisation adapt to a changing world

ICMIF member organisations report that despite all the challenges of 2020, new ways have been found to create value for their member policyholders. At ICMIF, we have also sought to find new ways to support our members as we continue to adapt to the significant changes that are taking place in our insurance markets, workplaces and communities.

To satisfy demand from members, we began the process of creating a range of online learning and networking products in 2020 that people would normally only experience at our face-to-face events, such as the highly regarded ICMIF Advanced Management Course. The first transformation of an ICMIF learning product is the Mutual Leadership: Adapting to a Complex World online course which was successfully launched in 2020 and is now available to all ICMIF members.

“It is very difficult to recreate the same dynamic environment as in face-to-face courses, but you did an amazing job. I’m very happy with this course because the sessions were very interesting and dynamic, entirely different to other online courses I’ve taken.”
South American participant, June course

Those that took part in the 2020 courses praised the impact of the Mutual Leadership: Adapting to a Complex World course that features engaging, live, online presentations that translate insights from behavioural economics into easy to apply approaches for people. The tools transform the ways in which individuals and teams make sense of complex situations. The course provides extended discussion opportunities with peers from around the globe who are facing similar challenges expressed in different contexts.

The course dates for Quarter 1 2021 are 23 February to 16 March 2021. Dates for subsequent course will be released as soon as they are available.

Who should attend?

This course is for employees of cooperative and mutual insurers who are increasingly:

  • Leading others (formally and informally)
  • Tackling complex situations
  • Collaborating across cultures

Participants of the Mutual Leadership course will include a mix of technical insurance and non-technical people, reflecting the typical make-up of a mutual/cooperative insurer.

Participants must be comfortable holding strategic conversations in English.

Benefits of the course

Participants on the course will:

  • Learn the essential frameworks, mental models and tools that ICMIF members praise for transforming agility in complex situations
  • Explore the learning and current challenges with peers to personalise the insights and translate them into near-term value
  • Network with a global peer group to develop the habit of mutual support and collaboration
  • In addition to the above, you will also receive exclusive access to the MLC alumni group: MC2 (MC squared). See below for more information.

ICMIF will pilot regular MC2 events for you and your peers in 2021. These events will offer frequent opportunities for you to discuss the key challenges that you are facing at the time with your fellow MLC alumni through what others call peer to peer consulting and what we at ICMIF refer to as mutual consulting. There will certainly be many issues that you have in common and, we believe, that the bonds you will have already formed with other fellow MLC participants will allow for a free and productive discussion on these topics to provide you with new solutions for your organisation.

In addition to working with your own MLC group, you will be able to expand your new global network to include all ICMIF MLC alumni from different courses.

“The learning journey has been an amazing one, the way the course was structured, the communication, the collaboration and networking opportunities you created for us. You apply all the principles that you are teaching us throughout the course, which is really good because you are embedding the knowledge while teaching us the theory.”
