Presidency and management of the institute [1]   


Jean-Pierre BAL


At INSIL the institute's directorship and the governing board's presidency roles are combined into a single executive presidency position. Jean-Pierre Bal is the président-directeur of INSIL. His executive role is subordinate to his educational one, as he stated: "any CEO should be very actively involved in the training of emerging leaders at all levels in the organisation; a pivotal role, and first and foremost". He is also the  Institute Professor of Leadership, first from 2012 to 2015, and then again since 2017.  


Most recent activities (since 2015)


On having organised for a half-time leave-of-absence from his executive duties at INSIL, in 2015 he rejoined the THIERRY Graduate School of Leadership, as Renaissance Professor of Leadership, the school's most senior faculty position. He therewith also reinitiated his past explorations in the fields of creativity, design-thinking, self-leadership, and multidisciplinary realms, thus not limited to leadership development per se. He shares his expertise in talent development by offering courses, workshops, and consultancy to individuals and organisations active in many areas and levels, including in the arts, the crafts, the fashion world, some scientific areas, entrepreneurs, and other sectors yet.
