As the snow builds up here in Hanover and we firmly plant our winter boots in 2014, we are also reflecting upon some of the events that shaped 2013. Four Tuck professors were named to the Thinkers50 biennial ranking of top management thinkers— thought leaders whose ideas are true game-changers and who help us think differently about solving the challenges of today’s interconnected world. From the floor of the Thinkers50 event, Marshall Goldsmith shared his “big idea” on achieving employee engagement—that the missing variable is you. We are embracing that one wholeheartedly in our work with clients and in our own organization.


In other events, Tuck played a key role in the HR Summit for a second year. This annual forum for HR executives from global companies is a great opportunity for us to learn from HR leaders. We really value the one-on-one time with HR professionals at these types of high-level events. Tuck Associate Dean for Executive Education Sydney Finkelstein led a session on the four capabilities of great strategic leaders—insights derived from his many years of research.


Looking ahead, our flagship executive development program—the three-week Tuck Executive Program—will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. We glanced back at the early days of this program and realized that while the teaching methods and subjects may have altered, the mission of developing more well-rounded, strategic leaders remains steadfast.


We hope to see you this year, and here’s to your leadership success!
Clark Callahan, Executive Director

The results have been extraordinary.
