About Me

Gianpiero Petriglieri is Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD.

His award-winning research and teaching focus on what it means, and what it takes, to become a leader. He is particularly concerned with the development of leadership in the age of “nomadic professionalism,” in which people have deep  bonds to work but loose affiliations to organizations, and authenticity and mobility have replaced loyalty and advancement as hallmarks of virtue and success.

Building on his research, Gianpiero has contributed to refining a unique approach to experiential leadership development that aims to deepen and accelerate the development of individual leaders as well as to broaden and strengthen leadership communities within and across organisations. At INSEAD, he directs the Management Acceleration Programme, the school’s flagship executive programme for emerging leaders, and chairs the initiative for Learning Innovation and Teaching Excellence.
